After nearly two years, CES returned ‘home’ to Las Vegas welcoming well over 45,000 attendees in person, including 1800 global media, across 11 indoor and outdoor venues. The show was truly a global event, with 30% of attendees traveling from outside the US – representing 119 countries.
A CES blog article published in October states these words: CES 2022 is the Home for Digital Health Innovation.
Today, more than ever, technology is making a tremendous impact on our lives as patients and caregivers.
That may be why this edition of CES 2022 has seen a growing presence of health and wellness companies.
Prior to the pandemic, the Digital Health section was essentially dedicated to fitness wearables, and yet it seemed that the health industry didn’t trust consumer-focused technology.
The pandemic, as mentioned several times, has also changed that scenario. More than 100 health-related companies attended CES 2022, enlivening conversations about using technology to promote a more equitable health, about the rise of AI usage, and the much-discussed topic of Mental Health.
Robert B. Ford, Abbott Chairman of the Board and CEO, was the first representative of a pharmaceutical company to take the mainstage for a keynote at CES.
CES is the ideal stage to spotlight how technology is allowing people to take control of their health, Abbott’s Ford said. Health is at the center of our ability to live a full life, and the acceleration of health technology has the potential to improve more lives in more places than ever before. We look forward to sharing some of the latest health tech advancements and future possibilities at CES 2022.
And Philip shares the same view as Abbot. Having exhibited at CES since 1967, Philip has used the show to promote new products and technologies, build a media coverage and forge new partnerships.
CES is a melting pot of innovation and a global platform, and we receive global publicity from it, Gordon said. Things just keep getting better, and it really starts with generating visibility at shows like CES.
