Because of the spread of the omicron variant of COVID-19, the conference held physical and online-only events. Several major companies also dropped out of physically attending CES 2022 in Las Vegas, including Amazon, T-Mobile and Microsoft.

The attitude among executives CRN spoke with at the show – especially ones from overseas – was that they had already invested too much in travelling to CES and paying for floor space to drop out.

Benjamin Azoulay, CEO of France-based Oledcomm, the maker of the tablet powered by light, told CRN in an interview that he’s come to CES since 2008.

Even though the conference focuses on consumer goods, he landed a major client by coming to CES 2019 and didn’t want to miss out on any opportunities at the less-crowded CES 2022. “All it takes is one good meeting to make the trip worth it,” Azoulay said.

CES 2022 runs from Wednesday to Friday. Here’s a look at the most cutting-edge products on display at Unveiled.
