CES 2021 announced

Even as the coronavirus pandemic continues to be a threat, the organisers of one of the most influential tech events in the world, CES 2021, plan to make it an in-person event in Las Vegas.

"We will showcase our exhibitors' products, technology breakthroughs and ideas to the world, both physically in Las Vegas and digitally," Consumer Technology Association, which produces CES, said in a statement.

CES 2021 is scheduled to be held from January 6-9 in Las Vegas. The group behind the annual trade show said that it will continue to expand its digital reach, even as it adapts to the evolving situation.

"You can expect to see a wider selection of live-streamed CES content, along with many other engaging digital and virtual opportunities, enabling you to connect with the world's leading technology innovators, thought leaders and policymakers," the statement added.

The announcement came amid efforts by governments around the world to reopen their economies devastated by the pandemic. Starting with the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona in February, most technology events got cancelled, postponed or made virtual this year.

However, organisers of IFA, one of the major consumer electronics shows in Europe, last month announced that they will make the exhibition a real-life event when it opens in Berlin in September.

It will be an invitation-only event, meaning that the exhibition will not be open to the general public.
