The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has announced that the upcoming 100% virtual version of its flagship conference is now taking registrations. They include a special reduced price from now until January 4, 2021. The actual digital show itself starts on the 11th of that month.

In response to the global Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting necessity for social distancing protocols, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will be held completely online in 2021 rather than in its traditional Las Vegas venue.

However, the premier tech event still requires registrations to gain access to its virtual sites. The CTA has now opened them to the public and media.

Those for standard attendees are currently priced at US$149, rising to $449 on January 4, 2021. For this, interested parties will experience what the CTA's president, Gary Shapiro, describes as "a digital platform that will inspire, engage and fuel the future of the global tech industry".

The upcoming virtual showcase may make CES more "personalized", although it should still afford an insight into cutting-edge innovations and products for 2021 and beyond.

The CTA has also noted that its upcoming digital event is slated to include interactive, social and educational events. Its exhibitors currently include companies such as TCL, Samsung, Philips, Panasonic, LG, Lenovo, Intel, Hisense and Canon.

In addition, its confirmed keynote speakers include Dr. Lisa Su from AMD and Hans Vestberg from Verizon. This new form of CES will take place from January 11 to 14, 2021.
