It’s official: CES 2021, the world’s better tech trade event, is going agenda to assure anybody from the coronavirus. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), which organizes the show, today appear the agenda replacement.

The event was originally declared to run from January 6-9 in Las Vegas. Gary Shapiro, admiral of the CTA, appear the agenda event. He said that, while the aggregation hoped to bring anybody calm in Vegas again, “but given the accepted public health concerns, it’s just not accessible to bring anybody safely together.”

While I’ve never been myself, I’ve heard that CES requires having many, many people to pile into a assemblage center carefully (which, as a claustrophobe, makes my skin crawl). It makes social break very difficult, so it wouldn’t have been the best look if the CTA had gone ahead with it. It doesn’t help that rumors spread beforehand this year that CES 2020 may have played a role in the spread of the virus here in the States. Therefore, it’s been a given for a while that the event organizers would come to their senses and either cancel the 2021 event or go agenda with it — and now we have official confirmation.

We don’t yet know how exhibitors will be able to show their stuff, or how attendees will be able to see the whole event. Shapiro adumbrated CTA is alive on a appropriate belvedere to make the event work, but didn’t elaborate.

CES 2022 is, at the moment, still planned to be an in-person event in Las Vegas.
