The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), organiser of Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022, announced that the Las Vegas-based in-person event will close one day early.

This adjustment was made as an additional safety measure as CES seeks to align with health and safety guidelines from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Nevada and Clark County.

Initially scheduled as a four-day event, CES 2022 will now run for three days from 5 to 7 January, coming to a close at 6pm on its final day.

Of the 2,200 exhibitors that committed to participate at CES 2022, around 200 cancelled their physical participation. However, in the last two weeks, 143 additional companies have signed up for physical exhibitions.

The event is also open for digital registration where online participants can gain access to over 40 live-streamed conference sessions and keynotes, along with the ability to interact with CES exhibitors.

Exhibitors and attendees alike who are joining the event in-person are required to adhere to CES's set of safety regulations that include providing proof of Covid-19 vaccination, taking an on-site Covid-19 test, and keeping a mask on at all times during the event.

Participants are also encouraged to practise social distancing. In addition to spacing chairs further apart, the CES organisers have gone the extra mile in creating wider aisles to facilitate better traffic flow and crowd control. The event venues also feature enhanced ventilation systems to increase outside air flow.
