The CES 2022 technology conference is pressing ahead with an in-person show in Las Vegas next week despite the Covid pandemic.
They say they still have a couple thousand small exhibitors for whom the show is important.
Google, Waymo, Amazon, Facebook/Meta, GM, Microsoft, T-Mobile, AMD, AT&T, Casio, Hisense, HP, iHeartMedia, Lenovo, Nvidida, Pinterest, TikTok and Twitter have now canceled (that list is from the linked article).
They expect about one fourth the attendees as they had in 2020 but some think it could be half that. It’s a difficult time to hold a massive trade show convention.
