CES 2022's physical event will now end on January 7th
CES 2022 is due to start tomorrow, and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the group behind the event, has confirmed that the show's in-person exhibition will be closing on January 7th, one day earlier than expected.
Previously, CES's in-person exhibition was due to be hosted until January 8th, with the CTA stating that the show's early closure is a "additional safety measure". The CTA has also confirmed that 200 companies have cancelled their physical presence at CES, but that 143 additional companies have signed up over the past two weeks.
Most of the companies that have backed away from CES 2022's physical event have opted to showcase their latest products online and stream their keynote events. This minimises any risks to their staff presented by COVD-19 and any of its variant strains.
Below is what the CTA had to say regarding CES 2022's early closure.
The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) today announced that CES will be closing one day early and the in-person event will take place in Las Vegas on January 5-7, 2022. The show will close at 6 PM on January 7. The step was taken as an additional safety measure to the current health protocols that have been put in place for CES.
Well over 2200 exhibitors committed to participate at CES 2022 in person in Las Vegas. While some 200 cancelled their physical participation, in the last two weeks 143 additional companies have signed up to exhibit in-person. Construction of exhibitors' show floor space is well underway and soon you will be able to see and experience the latest tech innovations.
Those that are unable to travel to Las Vegas for CES 2022 have the flexibility to join digitally and will have the opportunity to experience the magic of Las Vegas. Digital registration will grant access to more than 40 livestreamed conference sessions, keynotes, and the ability to engage with exhibitors at CES.
