WASHINGTON—The International CES electronics extravaganza historically held in Las Vegas in early January, was once a “TV show”—that is, a massive annual exposition and convention to showcase the latest, greatest television receivers and consumer video equipment.
This year, the “All-Digital CES 2021” is a pandemic-induced virtual exhibit and conference taking place Jan. 11–14, (with a month of “reruns”). Registration opened on Dec. 3 (three months later than usual and after this issue went to press), and the Consumer Technology Association, which produces CES, is initially predicting that up to 150,000 people will tunein—approaching the 180,000-attendee range of recent years.
Although the number of exhibitors has dropped (about 1,500 vs. 4,500 last year), CES 2021 will maintain its exhaustive range of categories—from advanced TV, audio and gaming systems to automotive, health/wellness, smart cities and artificial intelligence.
