T-Mobile, Twitter, Meta scrap CES 2022 plans in Vegas due to COVID-19

From CNET: T-Mobile is dropping out of CES 2022 because of COVID-19 concerns, the company said Tuesday, with CEO Mike Sievert no longer scheduled to deliver a keynote presentation either in person or virtually. Meta and Twitter came to the same decision, it was announced Tuesday. CES is set to take place during the first week of January, in Las Vegas.

T-Mobile said it'll "significantly limit" its number of attendees at CES, and will remain as a sponsor.

"We are prioritizing the safety of our team and other attendees with this decision," the carrier said in a statement. "T-Mobile's entire team looks forward to an in-person CES 2023, which we hope includes an on-stage keynote in front of a live audience."

Amazon, Twitter, Meta and Pinterest have also dropped out of attending CES in person, while Nvidia said it has been "cautious from the start."

"[Nvidia] is scheduled to deliver its CES virtual special address on Jan. 4 at 8am pacific time," a spokesperson told CNET in an emailed statement.
