The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES Convention, is the biggest tech event in the calendar. It is an annual event that is held every January and it brings tons of news announcements and the most anticipated product launches.
But the 2021 event is said to be a bit different as it will be online-only, like numerous shows and launches that we've seen in 2020. The organizer of the convention, the US Consumer Electronics Association or CTA, announced in July 2020 that the event in 2021 will all be online.
When is CES 2021?
There is a slight date change too, aside from the event going virtual. CES 2021 will now take place on Monday, January 11 through to Thursday, January 14, 2021. Most of the announcements will take place on January 11 as that scheduled as the press, analyst and media day.

According to the CTA, the CES 2021 will be an all-digital experience connecting customers, exhibitors, thought leaders and media from all over the world. The new format will allow people to hear from technology innovators, see cutting-edge technologies and view the latest product launches, as well as engage with global brands and startups from around the world.
The CTA added that they plan to return to Las Vegas, Nevada for CES 2022, combining the best elements for a physical and digital show. They will be updating the feature up to and throughout CES 2021, so you can view the announcements that actually matter, according to Exhibitor Online.
