CES 2021 to have 1,000 exhibitors and 150K virtual visitors

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

The next big event on the tech show calendar is almost upon us. The CES 2021 kicks off on Monday, 11th January and runs for four days. Last year it was held just ahead of the Covid-19 pandemic wave, so ended up being one of the last physical exhibitions covered by the tech press. This year it will be somewhat reduced and virtual only. However the organisers, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), have already been booking venues for 2022 having faith in the various vaccines being able to provide enough personal safety for a hybrid event.

In 2020 the CES show attracted 171268 attendees, including 6517 members of the media, to promotional venues stuffed by 4400 exhibitors. In 2021 expect these numbers to be scaled down. We do have important keynotes and presentations from the likes of AMD, Nvidia, and Samsung to look forward to but the online-only event will feature a relatively small 1000 exhibitors. Being online will open up ‘attendance’ more widely though, with almost the same number of fold expected to take part in the show this year as last (estimated to be 150000 visitors in 2021).
