At the annual convention, Sony, Samsung and LG will unveil new products, along with thousands of other companies showing their latest innovations during the four-day event.
Artificial intelligence, 5G and robotics are expected to be one of the biggest discussion points when the world’s largest technology fair – CES – starts tomorrow.
It opens on Tuesday, January 7 in Las Vegas.
Striking figures from Apple and Facebook also appear on stage together during the show to discuss the data privacy technology industry approach – a subject that companies have previously encountered.
CES is a key date in the industry calendar, with more than 170,000 people expected to participate and more than 20,000 new devices to be revealed.
Ivanka Trump, daughter of the American president Donald Trump and advisor to her father’s administration, will also appear on the show.
Gadgets ranging from new televisions to drones, connected devices and robots are likely to all appear heavily on the show floor, while foldable smartphones – which came to the fore in 2019 – can also be a theme among the new devices that are revealed as companies try to get a grip in that emerging market.
The convention, which has been running since 1967, has a history of the site of the launch of notable technology – including DVD and HD television.
The organizers of the shows have also emphasized that during the show in 2020 a number of ‘non-traditional’ companies that are not known for their work in the technology sector will appear during the event.
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Impossible Foods and the gigantic agricultural machinery John Deere are among the confirmed prices for CES.
CES has also committed itself to continue working on improving diversity during the show, following criticism in recent years that its line-up of keynote speakers has failed to show equality.
Jean Foster, senior vice president of marketing and communication at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) – who is organizing CES – said that diversity was an industry-wide issue, but confirmed that CES had set up an advisory board to improve representation at its keynote speakers .
“We take this platform very, very seriously and we want to help the industry move forward,” she told PA agency last year.
