“CES 2023 will harness the power of person-to-person connection to keep the engine of innovation going,” says the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the organizer of the annual event.

‘CES is the world’s most influential technology event – a testing ground for cutting-edge technologies and global innovators.

“It’s where the world’s biggest brands do business and meet new partners, and the fastest innovators take the stage.”

Here’s everything you need to know before CES 2023 officially begins on Thursday.

What is CES?

CES is a technology trade show that takes place annually in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Usually attended by over 100,000 people, the show is often used by some of the biggest names in the industry to announce new products.

The first Consumer Electronics Show opened in New York in 1967 with 250 exhibitors and 17,500 attendees.

It was held twice a year at various times until 1998 when it was changed to once a year with Las Vegas as the permanent venue.

Who will participate?

Over 2,800 companies have registered to participate in CES 2023, including big names Samsung, Amazon, Google, LG, Microsoft, Sony, Panasonic and Asus.

Meanwhile, Apple doesn’t attend CES, or the other big tech shows of the year, preferring to hold its own events.

Other smaller attendees include Canadian robotics firm WowWee, GreenerWave, a ‘deep tech’ startup specializing in electromagnetic wave control, and Los Angeles health tech Movano, which will showcase the AV Ring, a wearable device developed for women.

The ring can read metrics including heart rate, respiratory rate, skin temperature, period and ovulation tracking, and menstrual symptom tracking.

What is the theme for CES 2023?

The theme of this year’s fair is ‘Human Security’, which refers to basic human rights, such as access to food and health care.

“We were approached by the World Academy of Art and Science, which has been working with the United Nations for a long time on human security,” CTA senior vice president Kinsey Fabrizio told The Associated Press.

“They wanted CES to really use this theme as our exhibitors showing how they are solving some of these big global challenges with technology.”

Fabrizio also said that the metaverse will be “a major theme” in immersive and shared virtual experiences, while there will be a dedicated part of the show floor for Web3.
