This week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 5 to 8 will be over 70 per cent larger than last year and includes the IoT Infrastructure Pavilion that is three times larger than in 2022.

The IoT Infrastructure Pavilion has drawn more than 70 exhibitors. Organised by the IoT M2M Council (IMC), in partnership with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the event includes not just the pavilion but also conference programming, interviews and panel discussions taped on the show floor, press events, and networking events. It should be one of the largest IoT events in the coming year.

For the first time, CES has a theme: how technology is addressing the world’s biggest challenges. The CTA, in partnership with the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security, will support the global campaign Human Security for All (HS4A).

“CES is the world’s most exciting technology event, from start-ups in Eureka Park to global brands on the main stages,” said Gary Shapiro, CTA CEO. “We are thrilled to spotlight thousands of innovative companies at this year’s show. Tech advances are helping to solve the world’s greatest challenges, and CES 2023 will set the agenda for the year ahead.”

The automotive sector will be bigger than ever, making it one of the largest auto shows in the world with nearly 300 exhibitors in West Hall. Global launches and keynotes from BMW and Stellantis lead into exhibits featuring the latest in self-driving tech, electric vehicles and personal mobility devices for land, air and sea.

The past few years have shown that consumers want to take their health into their own hands. CES is bringing even more digital health innovations and brands to the global stage, showing how rapidly this market is growing. Look for advancements in digital therapeutics, mental wellness, women’s health tech and telemedicine. CTA’s Digital Health Studio, presented by the American College of Emergency Physicians, will feature the latest in technology for diagnostic and treatment functions and highlight the importance of remote connectivity for accessible healthcare.

Global brands such as John Deere, LG, Samsung and Siemens will show how innovation can conserve energy and increase power generation, create more sustainable agricultural systems, power smart cities, and support access to clean water.

For the first time, CES will have a dedicated Metaverse area on the show floor. Exhibitors will showcase sensory technology building immersive, interactive digital worlds. A Web3 Studio, located in the LVCC and produced by CoinDesk, will be the focal point of the Web3, Metaverse and Blockchain area at CES. CoinDesk will host industry leaders and visionaries as they discuss the most impactful developments that have taken root across industries, technologies and capabilities. The show will also feature Web3 programming by the Blockchain Association.
