The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced that CES 2022 will require in-person attendees to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
CES 2022 will take place in Las Vegas on Jan. 5-8, 2022. For those who may be unable to travel to Las Vegas, CTA will again create a digital event that will run in parallel with the in-person program.
“Based on today’s science, we understand vaccines offer us the best hope for stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “We all play a part in ending the pandemic through encouraging vaccinations and implementing the right safety protocols. We are taking on our responsibility by requiring proof of vaccination to attend CES 2022 in Las Vegas.”
CTA is also assessing the acceptance of proof of a positive antibody test as an alternative requirement.
In Las Vegas, attendees will experience new technologies from global companies, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees. More than 1,000 companies will be in Las Vegas. The show will highlight advancements in AI, AR/VR, gaming and computing, digital health, automotive and transportation, home entertainment, smart home and more. Audiences will hear from industry leaders during live keynotes, including General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert.
