CES, the massive technology show that kicks off Las Vegas conventions every year, will be in an exclusively digital format in 2021, the sponsoring Consumer Technology Association announced Tuesday.

The show, scheduled to begin Jan. 6, was expected to include the debut of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s new West Hall expansion and The Boring Company’s underground people-mover system. The event annually draws more than 170,000 people to Las Vegas and meets in several venues, including the city’s three largest convention centers.

“Amid the pandemic and growing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, it’s just not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA.

“Technology helps us all work, learn and connect during the pandemic — and that innovation will also help us reimagine CES 2021 and bring together the tech community in a meaningful way. By shifting to an all-digital platform for 2021, we can deliver a unique experience that helps our exhibitors connect with existing and new audiences.”
