Despite major events in recent weeks, the Consumer Technology Association, which organizes CES, has been steadfast in its efforts to host this year's trade show. Now, the organizers have made some changes to the event schedule due to an increase in Omicron infections in the United States.

CTA has announced that CES 2022 will end one day earlier than originally expected as an additional measure of existing health safety protocols. This means that the trade show will start on January 5, as originally scheduled, but will end on January 7th. Prior to the amendment, CES was due to expire on 8 January.

"We are shortening the show to three days and have implemented comprehensive health measures for the safety of all attendees and participants," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CTA. Exhibitors have confirmed their attendance, with 143 more companies signing up in the past two weeks, according to CTA.

However, several big names have recently postponed their corporate presence at the event, including Google, Microsoft, AMD, OnePlus, Twitter, Intel, Amazon, T-Mobile, and Meta. As concerns about the Omicron variant grow, some of these companies are moving to meaningful displays. Samsung, on the other hand, will continue to make some of the best Android phones, with its own presence.

If you are attending the event in Las Vegas, be sure to show proof of the COVID-19 vaccine. The CTA also requires attendees to test for the virus within 24 hours of their departure from the United States. COVID-19 test kits will be distributed at the venue at the end of the demonstration.
