The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced that CES 2022 will be closing one day early on the 7th January as an additional safety measure to the current  health protocols that have been put in place for CES. 

Many tech companies have decided not to attend the show in person, including Intel, AMD, IBM, Panasonic, Nvidia, Amazon, Lenovo, MSI and T-mobile. Samsung and Sony are still monitoring the situation. CES in recent years has also been a key show for car makers, highlighting the increased use of semiconductor technology, but Mercedes, BMW, waymo and General Motors are no longer attending in person.

However over 2200 exhibitors are still confirmed to exhibit in person at CES 2022 up to last week, say the organisers. In the last two weeks, 143 additional companies have signed up to exhibit in person.

eeNews Euroipe will of course be reporting on the news from the event, which starts tomorrow, including the latest chips for the Matter IoT protocol.

“As the world’s most influential technology event, CES is steadfast in its pledge to be the gathering place to showcase products and discuss ideas that will ultimately make our lives better,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “We are shortening the show to three days and have put in place comprehensive health measures for the safety of all attendees and participants.”

Those that are unable to travel to Las Vegas for CES 2022 have the flexibility to join digitally, with access to more than 40 livestreamed conference sessions and keynotes and the ability to engage with exhibitors.
