The biggest tech event in the calendar, CES
(formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show), rolls around each and every January, bringing heaps of new announcements and product launches.
As much as we love virtual events - it's exciting to see CES return to in-person 2022
CES 2022 will start on Wednesday 5 January through to Saturday 8 January, 2022. Expect most of the announcements to take place on Monday and Tuesday 3-4 January as those are the press, analyst and media days. However, as we've seen before, some manufacturers will be holding their own events and these will fall outside of the official CES events.
When it kicks off in in early January, CES 2022 will bring us a bevy of new devices from all the major players in the industry.
We’ll see some cutting-edge TV technology from the likes of LG, Samsung and Sony, plus new laptops, smartphones, wearables and headphones, too.
“For the 2022 event, we’re excited about taking a digital audience and bringing them into sessions at the physical show. We want to use the hybrid format as a tool to help connect more people and bring new audiences into the fold."
It will be a hybrid event this year - merging the best of in-person and online together!
Who attends CES?
CES is an industry event so, unlike IFA in Berlin, the public can't attend. But anyone connected to the consumer electronics industry can apply for a pass. In 2019 over 182,000 people attended, which is the show's capacity. That included 69,000 exhibitors (across more than 4,000 represented companies) and almost 7,000 members of the media.
What to expect from CES 2022
There will be a full run of press conferences, both in person and virtual, and we're expecting a full line-up of new product launches to go along with those. Traditionally, CES sees the launch of new televisions, with flagship models revealed, alongside new technology that's going to drive the industry through the year.
