Google, Intel do not attend “CES 2022” directly

San Francisco: Google and Intel have joined the growing list of tech companies that have decided not to participate directly in “CES 2022” in Las Vegas due to the ever-increasing number of Omicron incidents.

While the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the governing body of CES, will be pushing the show, several technologies such as Lenovo, T-Mobile, AT & T, Meta, Twitter, Amazon, TikTok, Pinterest, and Alphabet-owned Waymo. Companies do not participate in consumer electronics shows at some media outlets.

“After careful consideration, we decided to refrain from attending the CES 2022 showfloor. We have carefully monitored the development of the Omicron variant and determined that this is the best choice for health and safety. A Google spokesperson was reportedly said in a media report late Thursday.

For the past few years, Google’s outdoor exhibits have been the centerpiece of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

CTA told TechCrunch that more than 2,200 companies have been confirmed to participate directly in Las Vegas’ CES 2022.

“Our focus remains on convening the technology industry and empowering those who cannot attend directly to experience the magic of CES digitally. Participants and exhibitors can be in Las Vegas or online. We are confident that we will be able to hold a socially distant but valuable and productive event while experiencing at, “the organizer said in a statement.

In a previous tweet, Lenovo said: “After carefully monitoring the current trends surrounding Covid, stopping all onsite activities in Las Vegas is in the greatest benefit to the health and safety of our employees, customers, partners, and communities.

“This is a plan change, but we are all looking forward to the release of the latest technology scheduled for January 4th and January 5th.”

Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, one of CES2022’s hottest speakers, has announced that his company will not be attending the world’s largest electronics show next month.

The world’s most influential technology events will showcase some of the first innovations in blockchain-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs), remote health solutions, self-driving cars, games, food and space technology.
