CTA President Gary Shapiro sent a statement to TechCrunch:
More than 2,200 companies have confirmed that they will be attending CES 2022 in person. Our focus is on bringing together the technology industry and providing a digital experience to all those who can not attend in person. CES 2022 also provides an opportunity for companies large and small around the world to introduce their products, brand and partner.
