CES requires proof of vaccination
As we emerge from the pandemic, we are pleased to let you know that in January, we will be once again hosting tours of the Consumer Electronics Show – January 5-8 in Las Vegas.
While CES went on hiatus in 2021, the rate of change in technology did not stop, and it’s as important than ever that broadcasters engage with technology to best understand the impact and opportunities that lie ahead. To accomplish this, we have created curated tours for broadcasters that have proved to be a unique and valuable way to get a glimpse of the future and envision growth strategies for broadcasters.
These are CTA (Consumer Technology Association) sanctioned and led tours – the organization that puts on CES. We have brought these experiences to hundreds of radio broadcasters for five years now, and we’re excited to get back on the floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center, especially the all-new West Hall.
While we are still working on the specifics of our tour agenda, our goal is to visit companies like Ford and other automakers, Amazon Alexa Auto, Google, companies focused on Artificial Intelligence, electric and autonomous cars, virtual reality, and other innovations.
Our 90-minute private tours are limited to 15 guests and led by an expert employed by the CTA. When we visit each display, we are able to jump the lines and hear from an executive from each company who walks us through their technology and takes questions, making this a truly customized experience.
We are locked in for one tour, set for Thursday, January 6 at 2:30pm. We have an option for a second tour based on demand.
Our CES tour package includes CES registration, the tour, and a private dinner with all attendees. During the dinner we allow our guests to share their impressions of their CES experience, what they learned, and what they will take back to their stations. We also provide our guests with additional recommendations on how they can make their time in Las Vegas valuable, since CES is such a massive event.
While we expect CES 2022 to be as important, exciting, and mind-expanding as usual, like everything else in our lives, this will be a different event than what we’ve experienced before. Some of the changes include:
- CTA expects attendance to be around half of years past (which doesn’t bother us at all).
- The layout will be different – we usually spend most of our time in North Hall, where all of the car companies were located. But in the past two years, the Convention Center has added the West Hall, a brand new extension where automotive and other related companies will now be located.
- All attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination and they have put a process in place we will share with you as CES gets closer. CTA is also assessing the acceptance of proof of a positive antibody test as an alternative requirement and will share more details on this in the coming weeks. Currently, Las Vegas is also requiring masks be worn in all public, indoor spaces.
- While there will be 1,300 exhibitors, this will be fewer than in past years. In response, the aisles will be wider, making for a more comfortable, less congested experience
Any broadcast radio executive is welcome, including members of your team in management, programming, sales, engineering, and digital. In this way, you can experience the tour with other key people in your company or send others in your organization who would benefit from the experience, along with meeting other broadcasters from commercial radio, public radio, and Christian radio in a comfortable, collegial setting.
The cost for the entire package is $1,950 for Jacobs Media clients and $2,100 for non-clients. Attendees are responsible for air fare and hotel, but we have been able to procure a room block at the MGM Grand and Bellagio at a discounted rate. Availability is limited, so please contact us as soon as possible.
We look forward to starting off the new year with you in Las Vegas, glimpsing into the future.
If you’ve never been the CES before, this is the year to go as it will considerably less congested than a normal year. This is a “bucket list” item, and it will feel like your first fireworks show.
