As uncertainty regarding the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues, plans for next year are already beginning to change.

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) revealed that CES 2021 will be an “all-digital” event taking place Jan. 6-9. CTA says it’s working on “reimagining how to connect exhibitors, customers, thought leaders, and media from around the world while prioritizing health and safety.”

Plans are underway to include many of the same features that attendees have come to expect, including keynotes and conferences, product showcases with a digital CES show floor, and meetings and networking opportunities

Traditionally, CES kicks off trade show season with a massive, venue-spanning event in Las Vegas. CTA says it’s already making plans to return to the city for CES 2022 for an event that will combine the best elements of its physical and digital shows.
