Big companies will not attend CES 2022

Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and Pinterest have withdrawn from the Consumer Electronics Show 2022. Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter have all issued separate statements stating that they will not be attending the CES 2022, which will be held in Las Vegas in January. For not attending the Electronics show, the companies cited growing concerns about the new Omicron variant.

“Out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees, we won’t be attending CES in-person due to the evolving public health concerns related to COVID-19,” Meta was quoted as saying by Reuters. Twitter and Facebook are now exploring virtual opportunities. Twitter had earlier planned to have some employees attend to participate on panels.

Amazon and its smart-home unit Ring said they would not be physically present at the event next month due to the “quickly shifting situation and uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant” of coronavirus, according to a spokesperson for the company in an email to Reuters.

T-Mobile, a conference sponsor from the United States, announced that its contingent would not attend, and that its CEO would not deliver a keynote speech at the event.

“We are prioritizing the safety of our team and other attendees with this decision, while expressing confidence that CES organizers were taking exhaustive protective measures,” T-Mobile said in a statement.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the year’s greatest technology events. Previous year’s event drew more than 180,000 people from all over the world. The technology companies display the latest trends and gadgets in the industry. The event will begin on January 5 and will last until January 8. While Amazon, Facebook, and others have backed down, companies such as Sony, Qualcomm, and Google have yet to cancel their CES plans.
