CES 2022 Returning to Las Vegas Next January as Both In-Person and Digital Event

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) today announced that CES 2022 will return to Las Vegas next year as an in-person event, but a digital component will remain. The conference will be held from January 5 through January 8.

While CES is returning to an in-person format, the CTA said that "digital audiences" will still be able to experience exhibits, conference sessions, keynotes, and product announcements from the show floor, as with the all-digital CES 2021. It's unclear if this means in-person attendance will be limited, as full details have yet to be released.

To date, some 1,000 companies have committed to showcasing their products and technologies at CES 2022, according to the CTA. Attendees can expect to see global brands including Amazon, AMD, AT&T, Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler, Dell, Google, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, LG, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Sony, among others.

Apple has not had a booth at CES since the early 1990s, but the company's privacy chief Jane Horvath did appear at CES 2020 to debate the state of consumer privacy. Nevertheless, CES is still a notable event for the Apple ecosystem, as there are often several new products that incorporate technologies like HomeKit, AirPlay 2, and CarPlay.

It's ironic that an event focused on high tech decided to go back in time to old school in-person event. Imo they could've focused more on online presence utilizing AR instead of going back old school.
Having an in-person event is now "old school"? Huh? Hands on with products, networking, ability to have an actual one on one conversation? None of that is "old school".

There's no AR substitute for standing in front of a variety of products, such as new TV & car tech.

Plus, AR? They'd want to utilize something that people generally use.

Thank goodness especially for something nearly a year away. At this point, vaccines are widely available especially for the truly at-risk population. If you have a vaccine you are good to get back to normal, or if you simply aren't worried about a virus that under 50 has an estimated 99.98+% survival rate you should be able to attend. If you don't have a vaccine yet for some reason and are concerned, stay home. Pretty simple concept.

ahh yes, more fear mongering. This isn't the spanish flu, there is an effective vaccine. Possible sure, but unlikely.
A vaccine is only effective if the majority of the people get it. If they decide they don't trust the vaccine or have some other stupid reason for not taking it then we'll still be in the same boat we're in now, because that will give the virus more time to build an immunity to the vaccine and mutate to a more virulent and contagious strain.

Already been vaccinated with the J&J, the one that the CDC and FDA were fear-mongering about.
The funny part thing the J&J pause…

J&J blood clot risk : 0.0007%, Female Contraceptive Pill Blood Clot Risk : 0.1%, long haul flight blood clot risk: estimated anywhere between 3%-12%.

People take "The Pill" and fly to Australia all the time. They don't suspend them. Sometimes, you can be too cautious.
