The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) Oct. 6 announced that CES 2023, taking place Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas, will likely be the largest in-person, audited business event in the United States since early 2020. The show footprint is on track to grow more than 40% larger than CES 2022, the CTA announced.
“People are excited to head back to Las Vegas for CES 2023, and it will rock,” Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the CTA, said in a statement. “We are optimistic we can hit our attendance goal of 100,000, which would make it the largest independently-audited post-pandemic tech event. This year’s show will feature keynotes from tech visionaries and the opportunity to see and touch the tech that’s shaking up industries and changing our lives for the better.”
“Global brands including Abbott, Amazon, AMD, Google, John Deere, LG, Qualcomm, Roku, Samsung, Sony, Stellantis, Verizon — they and many others are committed to CES to launch new products and display cutting-edge technologies,” Kinsey Fabrizio, CTA SVP of membership and CES sales, said in a statement.
“The robust conference program shows momentum beyond the show floor at CES,” John T. Kelley, VP and acting show director for CES, said in a statement. “Hundreds of sessions with industry leaders will highlight advancements in transportation and mobility, digital health, metaverse and sustainability. And new at this year’s show: sessions focused on the creator economy, including NFTs, and Web3.”
The CES 2023 digital experience will offer access to more than 75 conference sessions and keynotes, digital activations, and a network of CES exhibitors, media and attendees. Digital registration opens later this year.
Key show themes include transportation and mobility, digital health, Web3/metaverse and sustainability. Another theme is “Human Security for All,” in which CES, partnering with the World Academy of Art and Science, will shine a spotlight on how technology helps people tackle the world’s most-pressing problems. Support of United Nations efforts to advance “Human Security for All” will be a theme throughout the show, from conference programming to keynotes highlighting innovation and products improving the lives of people around the world.
Other details the CTA revealed about the upcoming show include:
- 1,300-plus exhibitors confirmed;
- 100,000 attendee goal, with one third traveling internationally to attend;
- two announced keynotes, John Deere and AMD, with a third keynote announcement set for Oct. 13 at Unveiled Amsterdam;
