Following an all-digital CES 2021 last year, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced today that CES 2022 will come back to Las Vegas next year. Over 1,000 companies have already agreed to attend the in-person event in January 2022 including Amazon, Google, AMD, Intel, Qualcomm, Dell, Lenovo, and Samsung.
“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, 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.”
According to the press release, CTA will be reviewing guidelines for coronavirus safety measures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state and local guidelines. For those who can’t attend the in-person event, it will be possible to follow conference sessions, keynotes, and product announcements online.
Even though the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon, the annual big in-person tech events are slowly starting to make their comeback, starting with Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on June 28 – July 1. However, the annual developer conferences from Microsoft, Google, and Apple will once again go all-digital this year, and E3 will also be making its comeback as a digital event in June.
