Consumer Technology Hall of Fame Dinner

Nov. 15, 2022 | New York, NY

The first 50 honorees into the Consumer Technology Hall of Fame were inducted in 2000 at CES. Each year, a new group of inventors, engineers, business leaders, retailers and journalists are inducted at CTA’s annual awards dinner. 


The CT Hall of Fame (HOF) Program

The Hall of Fame celebrates the rich history of the consumer technology industry by honoring the leaders that have made it possible. Each year nominations are submitted online by manufacturers, retailers and journalists. These nominees are reviewed by a panel of judges that include industry professionals and media.

The entrepreneurs in the Hall of Fame are an extraordinary group. Although their achievements are different, they each had a vision, and their imaginations and hard work have created technologies, products and services to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
