What’s New & Next

Here’s the latest on who’s speaking, what’s featured and more.

CES, the technology industry’s blockbuster event, annually convenes visionaries and inventors who exhibit their world-first breakthroughs across the event’s halls, studios and stages.

The facilities span more than 1 million square feet of prime Las Vegas real estate; that’s a lot of ground to cover when exploring what’s new, and what’s next, from the industry’s freshest brands and established titans.

These pages offer an inside look at CES 2023 as exhibit spaces fill up and programming is finalized.

What’s New? 

Partnership for Human Security

A CES first for 2023: CTA has partnered with U.N.-affiliated World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS) to foster awareness of the U.N.’s Human Securities for All (HS4A) initiative to safeguard basic human rights through technology. HS4A, a new category for the CES Innovation Awards, will be highlighted across the show floor and in conference programming.

Next-Gen Web and Work Categories

A sold-out West Hall will feature Web3 and blockchain technologies as well as those that facilitate and advance remote work for peak productivity.

International Policy Track

International track sessions will include panel representation from policy experts and decision-makers from outside of the U.S. to discuss such topics as the importance of trade, the steps countries are taking to support startups, and advances that promote technical innovation for the good of mankind, the planet and more.

What’s Next? 

Digital Health

Modern health therapies increasingly are found where patients need them to be. As the health care industry rapidly moves to the cloud, care can be provided via secure and personalized platforms made possible through technologies virtually unimaginable a few short years ago. Wearables, remote monitoring and more will enjoy a strong presence at CES in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.


A new category for CES — blockchain-enabled Web3 — was little more than theoretical when Meta featured it at CES 2020. At CES 2023, Web3 will be featured in booths, conference programming and more. Discover the next iteration of the internet now taking shape and its continuing evolution through advances fueled by metaverse and cryptocurrency market forces.

Smart Home

Homeowners’ desire for convenience, efficiency and security at their fingertips fuels explosive smart home market demand, with revenues from smart home tech likely to approach $24 billion this year. Industry upstarts will share the show floor with globally known enterprises returning to CES with novel solutions for transforming tedious, time-consuming and resource-wasting practices into automated and eco-friendly operations.


Sustainability is a top trend at CES 2023, and its importance to human security and the planet’s health will be emphasized throughout the North Hall. Look for innovations in energy, food and agriculture, clean water and more. See how businesses push former science fiction into real-world technology and innovations, incorporating sustainability into product design as well as manufacturing.

Vehicle Tech

Few industry sectors have made greater strides more quickly than the automotive marketplace. Electronic vehicles have never been more reliable and in-demand. Manufacturers are responding with technologies for convenience and efficiency, as well as for autonomous operation. Will driver’s licenses and vision correction become obsolete by the decade’s end? Look for clues at CES 2023.
