The end of the world as we know it is officially here

This week the largest business-to-business, face-to-face exhibition in the United States, CES® 2021 moved to an online, all digital event.

In 2019, the UFI-approved event had 170,000 visitors, 6000 media, and 4000 exhibiting companies from every corner of the world. This is the first time since 1967 that the exhibition will not be held in Las Vegas – or anywhere in person.

Releasing the ‘pivot’ to virtual so early (its scheduled dates were January 6-9, 2021) sent reverberations all around the United States exhibition industry which has been severely injured by both the COVID-19 Pandemic and the national government’s failure to contain the outbreak.
