CES® 2022 concluded last week, following thousands of product debuts unveiling innovation that will better the world and solve global challenges. More than 2,300 exhibiting companies from around the world, including more than 800 startups, launched products featuring innovation across Artificial Intelligence (AI), automotive technology, digital health, smart home and more. After nearly two years, CES returned ‘home’ to Las Vegas, welcoming well over 40,000 attendees in person, including 1,800 global media across 11 indoor and outdoor venues. The show was truly a global event, with 30% of attendees travelling from outside the U.S, representing 119 countries.

“Innovation came to life this week at CES 2022 with technologies that will reshape industries and provide solutions to pressing worldwide issues from healthcare to agriculture, sustainability and beyond”, said Gary Shapiro, President and CEO at  Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, owner and producer of CES. “The CES show floor buzzed with the joy of human interaction and a five-sense innovation experience with products that will redefine our future and change our world for the better”.

“CES 2022 furthered global business this week, as our industry gathered—many for the first time in two years—to collaborate, forge partnerships, make deals and advance the economy”, said Karen Chupka, EVP at CES. “After two years of not being able to connect in person, we were thrilled to welcome our industry back together again, face-to-face, to experience the latest innovation at CES 2022”.
