The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced last week that #CES2022, the world’s most influential technology event, will require in-person attendees to provide proof of #COVID19 vaccination.
Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA said “Based on today’s science, we understand vaccines offer us the best hope for stopping the spread of COVID-19. 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 and will share more details on this later. CTA will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and will announce additional protocols closer to the show.
In Las Vegas, attendees will experience a host of new technologies from global companies, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees. Some 2000+ companies including major brands and start-ups will be in Las Vegas. #CES2022 will feature new categories showcasing how the industry is evolving, including space tech, food tech and NFTs. The show will also highlight advancements in #AI, #AR and #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.
