Where Is It Being Held?

CES happens at the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC) and an array of other locations on the Las Vegas Strip. After its 2021 virtual event, CES will likely retain virtual elements in the future.

In 2021, Microsoft powered the all-digital event using its cloud solutions like Azure, Teams, and Power Platform to create a virtual world for the event.

How to Register to Attend

Both consumers and industry professionals can attend the event. Consumers are limited to select public events; industry professionals can attend approved events and the digital floor show through credentialing.

What Kinds of Things Are Usually Announced at CES?

CES began in 1967 and has created a reputation for being the place for new tech announcements. In 1970, for example, CES showed a prototype of the videocassette recorders. Twelve years later, the eight-bit Commodore 64 launched at the event. DVDs, HDTV, Xbox, fitness bands, Blu-ray discs, 8k TVs... the list of innovative tech first shown at CES goes on and on.

In 2020, CES hosted more than 4,400 exhibitors and covered technologies from artificial intelligence and 5G to sustainable tech trends.

CES tends to be mainly about home entertainment announcements. In 2022, keep an eye out for more 8k innovations, increased virtual assistant and streaming device (like Roku) integration into all kinds of products, more OLED and ULED televisions, more new trendy cameras, and lots and lots of new audio options.

Don't expect to see much involving new smartphones, though. While a few things might surface, most companies wait to make a big competitive splash with new phone models during Mobile World Congress (MWC), an annual industry event in Spain that focuses on all things mobile. Apple and Samsung, in particular, tend to either use MWC for announcements or host launch events.

Keynote and Other Speakers Confirmed for 2023

We'll update this space closer to the 2023 event with details about speakers and keynote addresses.

CES always has exciting keynote speakers, and 2022 was no exception. Samsung's keynote centered on its vision for an 'Age of Togetherness.' General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra also presented digitally, speaking about the company's all-electric future. U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will also offer digital remarks about transportation and tech, followed by a fireside chat with Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon and CTA's Jean Foster.
