CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2022 is set to take place in the first week of January. However, the Covid-19 Pandemic is impacting the most influential tech event in the world adversely. Still, there’s a lot you can expect from this much-awaited showing which will take place in-person and online.
Last year, CES was held completely online and it was the first all-digital event in its history. This year, the 52nd edition of the biggest tech affair in the world will feature more than 1900 exhibitors and over 2400 members of the media in Vegas.
Attendees are allowed to visit the Consumer Electronics Show in-person or online. Every year, millions of people visit Las Vegas just to attend this major tech carnival. However, this year the in-person attendance will be significantly limited due to the Covid 19 concerns.
Regardless of that, CES 2022 is going to be immensely exciting for all tech lovers worldwide. It will feature industry leaders showcasing their latest technology. All sorts of electronic devices and next-gen gadgets will be revealed.
