CES 2018: dates, registration, news and predictions for tech's biggest show


Update: CES on your bucket list? Good news – CES 2018 registration is still open! If you’re interested in attending the upcoming show, you’ve got time to submit your application. It’s important to note, though, that CES is a trade show, so you must have a consumer tech industry or media affiliation in order to attend.

Nvidia has sent out save the dates for its CES 2018 press conference, scheduled to take place on Sunday, January 7 from 8-9:30pm PT at the MGM Grand. Nvidia always kicks off CES with an action-packed keynote, and we expect next year’s edition will be no exception.

Can you believe it? CES 2018 is right around the corner. Las Vegas will once again play host to the biggest consumer technology expo on the planet, and exhibitors from around the world will descend upon the Las Vegas Convention Center and other locations on the Strip to show off their latest wares. 

CES, which stands for the Consumer Electronics Show, has admittedly lost a bit of its luster in recent years as hardware manufacturers have opted to hold individual press events scattered throughout the year to unveil new products, rather than elbow for exposure during a massive conference. 

Big show: 184,279 people attended CES 2017

But that doesn’t mean CES 2018 won’t be without must-see gadgets, futuristic cars and sneak peeks at innovations that could change the tech world as we know it. Au contraire – next year’s show could bring as much excitement as ever.

The official CES 2018 dates are January 9 through January 12, though, as was the case last year, two days of media-only news conferences take place on January 7 and January 8. TechRadar will be at CES from beginning to end, delivering must-see news and hands-on reviews from the show floor. 

Read on for the latest news and rumors surrounding CES 2018, as well as our predictions for what some of the top manufacturers will bring to Las Vegas early in the New Year.

Samsung at CES 2018

Samsung is always a big focus at CES, generally with good reason. The tech giant typically unveils a number of devices (not counting its updated line of smart washing machines and dishwashers), and sometimes shows off hardware that’s a little bit out there. 

Two years ago, it was a bendable TV. Next year, it could be a bendable phone.
