The 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been cancelled. The show which happens every January was set to take place January 6-9 2021. The show organizers, the CTA has announced an all digital CES 2021 experience instead.
Here is what they said about it in an e-mail we received this morning…
“With the growing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, 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.
An all-digital CES 2021 will allow the entire tech community to safely share ideas and introduce the products that will shape our future. As a media attendee, you’ll be able to participate in all the awe-inspiring moments of CES wherever you are the in world. We are designing a unique experience for the tech industry.”
CES is expected to come back in 2022, with the hope that the global COVID-19 pandemic improves.
