Early January 2022 in Las Vegas will again be home to the tech world as the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) said CES will return to the Nevada desert.
Following the all-digital 2021 event, next year’s CES will be held from January 5 to 8. Approximately 1,000 companies have committed to the show and additional companies continue to sign up, CTA officials said.
“We’re thrilled to return to Las Vegas – home to CES for more than 40 years – and look forward to seeing many new and returning faces,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO for the CTA. “Hundreds of executives have told us how much they need CES to meet new and existing customers, find partners, reach media and discover innovation.”
Digital audiences will also be able to experience the spirit of the live event. The CES anchor desk, which debuted at CES 2021, will travel to Las Vegas and connect the digital audience with exhibitors, conference sessions, keynotes and product announcements from the live event. New content will also be added once CES departs Las Vegas, enabling attendees and exhibitors to continue connecting and exploring.
CTA will be reviewing guidelines for coronavirus safety measures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state and local guidelines. CTA will be following applicable federal, state and local laws, adapting show plans accordingly and sharing updates with its audiences.
