After this year’s online-only event, CTA is still planning to put it on CES 2022 as a hybrid event with personal and digital components. Today The CTA announced that if you plan to perform in Las Vegas, you must provide proof against COVID-19 vaccination.
CERTIFICATE OF COVID-19 VACCINATION REQUIRED
On August 17, the CTA announced that all participants and exhibitors must present a vaccination certificate in order to participate in CES. The CTA will continue to follow the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Nevada and Clark County. CTA will comply with applicable federal, state, and local laws, adapt CES plans accordingly, and distribute updates to you and other CES audiences. We also work closely with the Las Vegas community, including the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, exhibits and hotels, and if they adjust their plans, we will also announce it. While the situation will continue to evolve in the coming months, read the information below for just a few precautions to take.
Navigating the CES showroom without infecting an infectious disease is tricky, even in the absence of a global pandemic, so the instructions come as no surprise. The announcement comes at the same time as New York City is published Key to NYC Passport plan and concert leader According to Live Nation, it requires vaccination or a negative test participants and crew.
For those who have not been vaccinated, either of their own choosing or because they live somewhere without vaccines, the CTA says it “evaluates the acceptance of a positive antibody test as an alternative requirement.”
It is also unknown how this applies to events that take place outside the show floor and keynote ballrooms or entirely outside the umbrella of the CTA. We look forward to hearing more about all of this long before the CES 2022 media days on January 3rd or when the showroom opens on January 5th.
