CES 2020: What to expect?

News Tech

CES® 2020 is the world’s largest and most influential tech event, where the entire technology industry gathers to launch products, build brands and partner to brainstorm on some of the world’s most challenging issues.

Starting this 7th January, we can expect more than 4,500 exhibitors who will launch nearly 20,000 new transformative tech products to more than 170,000 attendees, encompassing 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, smart cities and resilience, sports, robotics and more.

What’s New?

New Companies: Expect the unexpected from non-traditional tech company exhibitors, including, Bell, Impossible Foods, John Deere, NBCUniversal, P&G, and WWE.

Travel & Tourism: A great highlight for this year’s show is probably the new conference programming with a focus on how smarter and safer technologies are transforming the travel and tourism industries.

Diversity & Inclusion programme: Innovation for All: Conference sessions will explore Chief Diversity Officer insights, how to create inclusive products, ways that D&I is contributing to the bottom line, culture-shifting/hiring differently, and investing in diversity.

World Bank Partnership – CTA and the World Bank will partner on a Global Tech Challenge which will call for companies around the world to create or present solutions focused on three key areas: health, gender barriers and technologies that enable communities to be resilient. 

CES 2020: Leaks and New Technologies

Even if CES hasn’t officially started, some of us already heard about a few products expecting to make their debuts at the show.

LG has will probably showcase the look of their first TV with ‘8K Ultra HD’ resolution that’s been industry-certified.
The tech giant shouldn’t be stopping there and also unveil a new set of gamer-oriented monitors, including a 38-inch curved 4K display with an IPS panel that yet manages a 1ms response time.

On another side, OnePlus will be unveiling a new mystery device at its own event during CES ‘OnePlus Concept One.’ Now the question is: Is OnePlus going to enter the foldable phone rodeo?
Given another rumor about OnePlus, the company would be potentially releasing true wireless headphones to rival the AirPods, which makes us think that we might see a lot more OnePlus at the show than ever before!

When does CES 2020 take place?

The official dates for CES 2020 are from Tuesday 7th January through Friday 10th January 2020, in Las Vegas

However, journalists and editors are expected in the city a few days before to cover the news conferences and other previews on Sunday 5th January. It’s during that time we’ll hear from Sony, Samsung, LG, and several other electronics makers as they introduce us to new products at their on-stage keynotes.
