Thus, The Consumer Electronics Show joins many other events that have happened in digital format, that have had to adapt to new health circumstances or that have been directly discontinued due to the coronavirus.

The CTA said it plans to return to an in-person event in 2022. MWC was called of just days before the event, leading many planned launches being moved to separate virtual events. Among them is the Mobile World Congress 2020 in Barcelona, whose celebration had to be canceled, or IFA 2020, which this year will be a three-day "mini IFA" with a limit of 1,000 attendees for each event. The largest technology event in the world by visitor numbers, it usually attracts around a quarter-million people. However, it will be an invite-only event that will put strict limits on the number of attendees.
