The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), in a post on the CTA website within its “Update on CTA Events” section, has followed up on a mid-March statement about the cancellation of CES Asia 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic with a further statement about the show’s future.
The statement reads as follows: “CTA has now decided to cancel CES Asia going forward. We have enjoyed annual growth and success since CES Asia was launched in 2015 in Shanghai. We evaluate our events in light of the changing needs of our industry and the priorities of our members and exhibitors. Given the pandemic, the economy, and our visible role as an American trade association, we have decided to focus on other CES-related programs and serving the interests of our industry and how innovation can make all of us healthier, safer and better.”
CES Asia this year had been scheduled for June 10-12 in Shanghai, China.
