CES 2024 dates, registration, and attendees

The world's biggest tech trade show has been and gone with the 2024 edition being dominated by OLED screens and AI.


CES is the biggest tech trade show in the world that sees hundreds of thousands of visitors flocking to Las Vegas every year to check out the thousands of exhibitors and their latest tech. CES 2024 has been and gone, with the show having taken place Jan 9 – Jan 12, 2024 (Tuesday-Friday).

However, we already know the dates for CES 2025 and CES 2026 too and you can find all our coverage from previous shows in our CES story hub.

Despite being a trade show that isn’t open to the general public, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) provides one of the biggest PC gaming news surges every year, with companies using it as a way to showcase their latest and greatest products. Everything from new CPU and GPU releases, the latest gaming monitors and PC cases, to the latest gaming laptops, and much more is shown off at the event. We report from the show floor each year, providing the latest news as it’s announced, and getting hands-on with all the latest PC gaming products.

CES 2024 dates

CES 2024 took place between January 9-12, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The exact dates shift every year, as it depends which days of the week fall on which data – the main event always runs from Tuesday to Friday, generally in the second week of January.

CES 2025 dates have already been announced with the next show taking place a few days earlier than this year’s. Meanwhile, CES 2026 is even earlier still, with it kicking of on January 6 2026.
