The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has announced that the annual Consumer Electronics Show will be an all-digital experience.

Due to growing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, CTA believes it is not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person. Instead, the all-digital CES 2021 will allow the tech community to safely share ideas and introduce new products to participants wherever they are in the world via a new digital platform. The digital ‘experience’ will include:

  • Keynotes and conferences. Now you’ll have a front-row seat for groundbreaking announcements and insights from the world’s tech leaders completely online.
  • Product showcase. With this digital evolution of the CES show floor, you’ll be able to explore products and services, based on your interests and business, through dynamic product showcases or live demos.
  • Meetings and networking. You’ll be able to engage with the brands, thought leaders and business connections you care about with live interactions, meet-ups or roundtable discussions.

The event will take place during the first week in January. Click here for more information.

Footnote: At this stage, the annual CP+ Camera and Photo Imaging Show in Japan is still scheduled to take place between 25 and 28 February 2021 at the Pacifico Yokohama conference centre.
