With the pandemic slowly turning into regular everyday news and not so much something bringing the world to a halt, the CES 2023 show in Las Vegas was able to shine bright this year. Companies from around the world attended with some of the best tech to expect in 2023. Proving to be a great sign for what’s to come.
This round, the show was around 70% of its normal capacity, up from what felt like 20% last year (2022 was quite unfortunate). It will be no surprise if 2024 sees a CES event that is back to normal capacity, if not even bigger than ever.
There was a lot to see, covering multiple categories. Such as robots and AI, smart home (ie, Matter), 8K, next-gen OLED solutions, foldable displays, VR/Meta, electric vehicles of all shapes and sizes, and so much more. Showing that the tech industry isn’t going anywhere (despite the many things around the globe putting pressure on everything).
We were able to come back with so much content that it sent our editing team into overdrive as it worked nearly around the clock to get everything out there. Even Microsoft showed up this round, after avoiding the show for a number of years now.
Oddly enough, some companies were a little shy this round when it came to press being present. One of those being Razer who seems to avoid the press like the plague, preventing us from coming back with any video content. This was too bad as the company had a very interesting handheld streaming solution that would have made for a great interview. Sadly, we couldn’t bring you such content since they didn’t have any interest in talking about it (they literally ran and hid from our camera crew).
But that was a very limited response compared to the hundreds of companies that couldn’t wait to talk about what you can expect to see in the near future (and some of what is already out there). Spanning multiple locations all across the Las Vegas strip, along with the majority of the Las Vegas Convention Center. You could almost miss the fact that it wasn’t at 100% capacity with how big everything was.
As mentioned, 2024 should be a big year for the show. Few reports of anyone getting sick (if any) and a huge attendance when it comes to both exhibitors and attendees. I’d say that was quite a success for the city and proof that these shows can still exist, even with everything happening around the world.
