USA TODAY reports COVID concerns lead to GM, T-Mobile, Amazon canceling in-person attendance at CES 2022

From USA TODAY:

Two weeks ahead of the annual CES Show, the omicron COVID-19 variant is driving some big industry players to change their plans for the massive electronics and technology gathering.

General Motors is the latest major exhibitor to cancel its in-person plans for the event, scheduled for Jan. 5-8, 2022, in Las Vegas. GM CEO and chairman Mary Barra is scheduled to speak Jan. 5 and unveil the new electric Chevrolet Silverado pickup. Now, that presentation will be done virtually.

“We have decided to move to an all-digital approach with our activation at CES 2022 in January,” GM spokesman Stu Fowle said in a statement sent to USA TODAY. “CES is an important technology platform, and we are continuing with our plans on January 5 to share our significant company news including the reveal of the Chevrolet Silverado EV.”

Another keynote speaker, T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert, canceled his presentation Tuesday. But Sievert will no longer deliver the keynote in person or virtually, and “the vast majority of our team will not be traveling to Las Vegas,” the company announced late Tuesday.
