Las Vegas-based consumer electronics show, CES has selected Web Summit as its digital platform for the 2022 hybrid event.
Web Summit’s event operating system, Summit Engine is a cloud-based platform, built to support both in-person and digital audiences.
Jean Foster, senior vice-president of marketing and communications at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), which organises CES said: “Working with an innovative and unique company like Web Summit allows CES to, once again, reimagine how we convene and collaborate as an industry.”
From 5-8 January 2022, in-person attendees to CES 2022 can use Summit Engine to plan their schedule and connect with other participants. Digital audiences will have the opportunity to join the show by accessing live keynotes, viewing select conference sessions and connecting with exhibitors and other attendees.
“We’re delighted to be chosen by CTA as its digital platform provider for CES 2022, and we understand what large-scale, complex events like these demand,” said Paddy Cosgrave, co-founder and CEO at Web Summit. “We’ve been quietly building our software, Summit Engine, for nearly a decade to augment our physical events so moving them fully online during the pandemic was easy for us.”
Exhibitors with a physical presence in Las Vegas can expand their reach to CES digital participants, by showcasing their products on the platform.
For all attendees, networking and on-demand content will be available through the end of January. Registration to attend CES 2022 digitally will open in December.
