How do you prepare to stand out in the new normal?

Last year, organizations across the world were forced to trade in their in-person event plans for digital experiences. It wasn’t uncommon to see organizations scramble to pivot their in-person event strategies to digital ones, all while trying to cut through the noise of a new, technologically driven environment.

CES 2022 will return to Las Vegas for an in-person and digital event from Jan. 5-8, 2022, bringing the industry together to experience the next generation of innovation. Now as events return to in-person, what changes can we expect to see?

Join Cision and guests to get the tools to create a strategy to get noticed at the most influential tech event in the world and prepare for in-person events moving forward.
