The dominant theme was the need for continued collaboration
|The Consumer Technology Association has announced that it will require proof of a COVID-19 vaccination for in-person attendance of CES 2022. The event takes place in Las Vegas Jan. 5–8. |
“Based on today’s science, we understand vaccines offer us the best hope for stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “We all play a part in ending the pandemic through encouraging vaccinations and implementing the right safety protocols. We are taking on our responsibility by requiring proof of vaccination to attend CES 2022 in Las Vegas.”
CTA says it’s also assessing the acceptance of proof of a positive antibody test as an alternative requirement and will share more details on this later. ”Safety, security and health are always a priority at CES, and we will follow state and local guidelines and recommendations by the CDC.” The organization adds that it will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and will announce additional protocols closer to the show.
For those unable to travel to Las Vegas, CTA is also planning to hold a digital event that will run in parallel with the in-person program.
