More than 4,400 companies launched their latest tech products to some 170,000 attendees across more than 2.9 million net square feet of exhibit space. From global
tech brands to pioneering startups, the innovations shown at CES 2020 are destined to revolutionize markets and change our world for the better. “CES 2020 inspired and connected every major industry across the globe,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, owner and producer of CES. “The innovation unveiled at CES 2020 will reshape industries, create jobs, fuel the global economy and improve lives around the world.”

As of early April, at least 90 percent of Americans have been told to stay at home, and businesses and corporations across the globe have been forced to transition their entire staffs to work from home, where possible. Meanwhile, schools are closed, restaurants are empty, nonessential businesses are shuttered, public parks and playgrounds are roped off to prevent social gatherings, and hand sanitizer is nowhere to be found.
