CES, or the Consumer Electronics Show is a massive, annual event where some of the most important technology makers and innovators show off their latest and greatest releases. The show began all the way back in 1967 in New York City, and was a bi-annual event until the late 1990s. In recent years, the formerly transient show has settled into Las Vegas as its regular home, typically taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The only exception to this practice was during the COVID-19 pandemic, with CES 2021 being held as an all-digital event for the first time in its history. The event returned to in-person status in 2022, but concerns over surging COVID infection rates led to many exhibitors cancelling and the show ending one day earlier than originally intended.
In 2023, CES is once again at just about full, in-person capacity, housing major reveals from companies like Samsung, Acer, Asus, HTC, Lenovo, and many, many others. According to the event's website, CES 2023 will include vendors from 174 countries spread across 41 separate areas of technology.
