Explaining about the CES 2021 event to be held in January, the Consumer Technology Association announced that the event will not be held in a physical environment. The union said the event will be held digitally and details will be shared later.
The CES (Consumer Electronics Show) event, where technology companies from all over the world introduce their new products, was organized without any disruption until today. However, this leg of the event in 2021 has been affected by the virus, such as events since the time the coronavirus began to spread.
The CES 2021 event, which is planned to be held on January 6 – January 9, 2021, has been canceled in Las Vegas, USA, according to today’s announcement. The Consumer Technology Association, which organizes the event, said the event in 2021 will be a ‘digital experience’.
CES will return to Las Vegas in 2022:
Explaining that the CES 2021 event will not be held physically, the Consumer Technology Association stated that COVID-19 made this decision in the middle of the growing global health concerns, as tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas thought it would not be safe to get together and do business in early January 2021.
In the statement made by the Consumer Technology Association, the answer to the question of when the event will be physically rearranged was also given. The union shared in its statement that they are planning to hold the CES event again in 2022 in Las Vegas, which they will do by ‘combining the best elements of physical and digital activity’.
The union said they will announce details of the CES 2021 event to be held digitally in the future. In addition, the union stated that the digital congress and fair will be a “highly personalized experience” and the speeches consisting of “technology innovators”, news announcements and product promotions will also take place in the event.
