CES 2021 改以數碼形式舉行

CES 2021 數碼形式舉行

美國消費電子展主辦方 CTA 宣佈,由於 COVID-19 全球大流行,基於公共健康䘙生考慮,明年一月舉行的 CES 2021 將會改以數碼形於網上舉行。

“Amid the pandemic and growing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, it’s just not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Technology helps us all work, learn and connect during the pandemic – and that innovation will also help us reimagine CES 2021 and bring together the tech community in a meaningful way. By shifting to an all-digital platform for 2021, we can deliver a unique experience that helps our exhibitors connect with existing and new audiences.”

CES 每年都會在一月初於美國拉斯維加斯舉行,全球大大小小電子產品公司都會參與,可吸引10多萬參加者。但在嚴峻疫情下,要確保這麼高人流的公共健康和䘙生十分困難,再者企業亦不會冒險參與,所以更改為網上形式也是預計之中。

其實自今年二月 MWC 2020 取消後,各種大型的展覽以至公司自行舉辦的產品發佈會都延期或取消,繼續舉行的都改為網上形式,只簡單的展示產品和簡報。接下來 9月舉行的 IFA 亦只集中在 B2B 以邀請活動形式進行,並不會向公眾開放,公眾只可以體驗數碼版的 IFA 2020 Special Edition。
