CES 2021 goes digital

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021 will be an all-digital experience enabling participants to hear from technology innovators from around the world.

The event will be held Monday 11 January 2021 through to Thursday 14 January 2021.

While 11 January is slated for exclusive media-only access, 12-13 January will feature exhibitor showcases and conference programming. The final day of the event, 14 January, is strictly conference programming only.

For over 50 years, CES, according to the event organisers, has been the global stage for innovation, and CES 2021 will provide an engaging platform for companies large and small to launch products, build brands and form partnerships.

Verizon Chairman and CEO, Hans Vestberg, is expected to deliver a keynote speech to open the technology event.

“CES 2021 will digitally convene innovators and business leaders from around the world showcasing tech changing lives for the better on a global scale,” said Consumer Technology Association President and CEO, Gary Shapiro.

“Technology is not only connecting us to one another, but is providing solutions to many day-to-day challenges created by the pandemic and that innovation is helping us reimagine CES 2021. We welcome Hans Vestberg back to a new keynote stage and look forward to learning how Verizon’s 5G platform will evolve a wide range of industries we all rely on every day.”

Shapiro said Vestberg's keynote will demonstrate the vital role that mobility, broadband and cloud has played in connecting the world this year and how the accelerated shift to 5G is transforming every industry.

“This time in history is redefining the meaning of connectivity for consumers, industries and society as a whole — imagination is our only threshold,” he said.

Innovators from around the world gathered at Las Vegas for CES 2019 to share their megatrend contributions, but it was developments in road safety, urban mobility and a futuristic last mile vision that stole the show.
