“Based on today’s science, we understand vaccines offer us the best hope for stopping the spread of COVID-19,” says CTA president and CEO, Gary Shapiro. “We all play a part in ending the pandemic through encouraging vaccinations and implementing the right safety protocols.”
CTA is also assessing the acceptance of proof of a positive antibody test as an alternative requirement but no decision has been made yet.
CTA will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and will announce additional or modified protocols closer to the show, which will take place Jan. 5-8, in Las Vegas.
In-person attendees will experience a host of new technologies from global companies, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees at the 2022 event. It will also feature new categories showcasing how the industry is evolving, including space tech, food tech and non-fungible tokens, or NFTs. The show will highlight advancements in artificial intelligence, augmented/virtual reality, gaming and computing, digital health, automotive and transportation, home entertainment, smart home and more. Audiences will hear from industry leaders during live keynotes, including General Motors CEO Mary Barra and T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert.
For those who may be unable to travel to Las Vegas, CTA will again create a digital event that will run in parallel with the in-person program.
CES, an acronym for Consumer Electronics Show, is considered among the most influential tech events in the world, featuring every aspect of the tech sector.
