Got Proof of COVID Vaccination? You’ll Need it to Attend CES 2022

CTA announced the vaccination requirement as CES will once again attract throngs of attendees to Las Vegas after 2021’s virtual conference.

ARLINGTON, Va. — If you are making plans to attend CES 2022 in Las Vegas, just know that you will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

CES 2022 will be held at multiple venues, Jan. 5-8, 2022. For those who may be unable to travel to Las Vegas, the event’s producer, Consumer Technology Association (CTA), will again create a digital event that will run in parallel with the in-person program.

“Based on today’s science, we understand vaccines offer us the best hope for stopping the spread of COVID-19,” states 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 is 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 a priority at CES, and CTA says it will follow state and local guidelines and recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

CTA will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and will announce additional or modified protocols closer to the show.

In Las Vegas, attendees will experience a host of new technologies from global companies, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees.

More than 1,000 companies including major brands and start-ups are scheduled to exhibit at the event. CES 2022 will feature new categories showcasing how the industry is evolving, including space tech, food tech and NFTs.

The show will highlight advancements in AI, AR/VR, gaming and computing, digital health, automotive and transportation, home entertainment, smart home and more. Audiences will hear from industry leaders during live keynotes, including General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert.
