CES 2021 is still being planned as an in-person event in Las Vegas Despite being linked to possible coronavirus cases in its 2020 show, CES 2021 is still being planned as a physical, in-person event in Las in April 2020, it came to light that an attendee of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 learned they had unknowingly contracted and recovered from the COVID-19 virus.
The CES 2021 organizers confirmed it would still be a live event in a blog post on the CES website regarding concerns about COVID-19 on June 3, 2020.
Despite the issues that may have been caused by carriers of the coronavirus being in close proximity to so many attendees during the previous event, CES 2021 is still being organized as a physical event in Las Vegas come January 2021.
It was in April, in the midst of closures, delays, and other major shifts in the industry, that we learned an attendee of CES 2020 found they had contracted and recovered from COVID-19 without knowing what it was at the time.
CES 2020 can hardly be blamed for this occurrence as the threat of the coronavirus pandemic would take quite some time to make itself apparent to the world.
