CES 2022 will require verification of vaccination for participants, exhibitors

After an online-only event this year, the CTA is as yet intending to put on CES 2022 as a hybrid event with in-person and digital components. Today the CTA declared that assuming you’re anticipating appearing in Las Vegas, you should give verification of vaccination against COVID-19.

Exploring the CES show floor without getting an irresistible disease is interesting in any event, when there is anything but a global pandemic, so the rules shouldn’t come as an amazement. The declaration comes simultaneously as New York City carries out its Key to NYC Pass plan, and concert promoter Live Nation says it will require vaccination or a negative test for participants and team.

To the extent the individuals who are not vaccinated, regardless of whether voluntarily or on the grounds that they live some place without access to vaccines, the CTA says it’s “assessing the acceptance of proof of a positive antibody test as an alternative requirement.”

It’s additionally unknown how this will apply to events occurring past the show floor and keynote ballrooms, or outside the CTA’s umbrella completely. We hope to hear more insights concerning all of this well before the CES 2022 media days start on January 3rd, or when the show floor opens on January 5th.
