What is CES 2023?

Held in January every year, CES is a consumer electronics trade show hosted by the Consumer Technology Association in Las Vegas where exhibitors gather to showcase the latest technology. A major event on the tech industry calendar, many companies use the occasion as an opportunity to announce upcoming product launches and concepts they’re working on.

More than 3,000 exhibitors will congregate at this year’s event, showcasing technology across a broad spectrum of categories. From home appliances, entertainment, sustainability, health, automotive, and AI, to emerging technologies like metaverse and Web3, CES 2023 will be big.

CES 2023 formally kicks off on Thursday 5 January Pacific Standard Time (PST) and runs until Sunday 8 January. Prior to its official opening, there are two media-exclusive days on Tuesday 3 January and Wednesday 4 January, when companies brief journalists on their announcements.
