CES is virtual this year, just like the accompanying and independent product showcases -- Pepcom, ShowStoppers, CES Unveiled and Techfluence.

CES 2021 is six weeks away. We've been asking whether editors care. Most can't yet conceive of a virtual CES and are waiting to see what the Consumer Tech Association comes up with. The show organizer has announced keynote speakers and Microsoft's role as virtual platform provider and little more.
