The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®  has announced, 28 April, that CES® 2022, the world’s largest technology event, will return to Las Vegas in January 2022.

Following an all-digital CES 2021, CTA will convene the tech industry in-person and digitally, 5-8 January 2022, giving access to major brands and startups, as well as industry advocates. Media Days are scheduled for 3-4 January, 2022.
Some 1000 companies have committed to showcasing their most innovative technologies in Las Vegas and more are expected to sign up. Attendees can expect to see global brands including Amazon, AMD, AT&T, Daimler AG, Dell, Google, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics and Sony. Companies including Caterpillar, Indy Autonomous Challenge and Sierra Space (a subsidiary of Sierra Nevada Corporation) are planning to make a Las Vegas debut in 2022. Eureka Park will return with startups representing countries around the world, including delegations from France, Italy, the Netherlands and South Korea.
“We’re thrilled to return to Las Vegas – home to CES for more than 40 years – and look forward to seeing many new and returning faces,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Hundreds of executives have told us how much they need CES to meet new and existing customers, find partners, reach media and discover innovation.”
Digital audiences will also experience the spirit of the live event in Las Vegas. The CES anchor desk, which debuted at 
CES 2021, will travel to Las Vegas and connect the digital audience with exhibitors, conference sessions, keynotes and product announcements from the live event. 

“Our customers are enthusiastic about returning to a live event in Las Vegas,” said Karen Chupka, EVP, CES, CTA. “Global brands and startups have shared that plans are already well underway and are committed to sharing the magic of an in-person CES with even more people from around the world.”
CTA will be reviewing guidelines for coronavirus safety measures from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state and local guidelines. CTA says it will be following applicable federal, state and local laws, adapting CES plans accordingly and sharing updates with its audiences.
