CES, the annual Consumer Electronics Show, one of the biggest technology events, is set to return to its live in-person format in 2022. The event went all-digital in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), hosting CES, has confirmed that 2100+ exhibitors across 44 tech categories have registered to appear at CES.
CES 2022 starts from Jan 5th – Jan 8th, 2022. Catering to the virtual needs of the pandemic, an online element is crucial. For safety reasons the venues have changed and improved upon air circulation, and the event will further require proof of COVID-19 vaccination (both doses) from attendees as well.
Several new categories are to be introduced at CES 2022, including food tech, space tech, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and more.
From India, seven companies have signed up to exhibit, and five of them are in the event’s startup area — Eureka Park. Enverde Altifarm and H-Bots Robotics are to name a few.
Below are a few companies and their showcase items at CES 2022:
