For the first time, the annual CES gadget launchpad in Las Vegas has a theme: how technology is addressing the world’s biggest challenges. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), in partnership with the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security, is using the event as a showcase for the global campaign, Human Security for All (HS4A).
“CES is the world’s most exciting technology event, from startups in Eureka Park to global brands on the main stages,” says Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CTA. “Tech advances are helping to solve the world’s greatest challenges, and CES 2023 will set the agenda for the year ahead.”
CES, formerly the Consumer Electronics Show, is the world’s largest expo of new consumer technology.
Major brands, like Canon, Google, Hisense, Intel, LG Electronics, Nikon, Samsung, TCL and Voxx, are hosting their own large stands, along with new and expanded areas. The CTA provided the following overview:
- Automotive and Mobility – The automotive sector will be bigger than ever, making it one of the largest auto shows in the world with nearly 300 exhibitors in West Hall. Global launches and keynotes from BMW and Stellantis lead into exhibits featuring the latest in self-driving tech, electric vehicles and personal mobility devices for land, air and sea.
Exhibitors: Candela Marine Technology, GM, Italdesign Giugiaro, Magna, MobilEye, Waymo, RYSE and Volvo Penta.
- Digital Health – The past few years have shown that consumers want to take their health into their own hands. CES 2023 is bringing even more digital health innovations and brands to the global stage, showing how rapidly this market is growing. Look for advancements in digital therapeutics, mental wellness, women’s health tech and telemedicine. CTA’s Digital Health Studio, presented by The American College of Emergency Physicians, will feature the latest in technology for diagnostic and treatment functions and highlight the importance of remote connectivity for accessible healthcare.

A Web3 Studio, located in the LVCC, Central Hall and produced by CoinDesk, will be the focal point of the Web3, Metaverse and Blockchain area at CES. CoinDesk will host industry leaders and visionaries as they discuss the most impactful developments that have taken root across industries, technologies and capabilities. The show will also feature Web3 programming by the Blockchain Association.
