CES 2025 dates, registration, and attendees

The world's biggest tech trade show will be back again in 2025, and here's what we know so far about the biggest tech trade show in the world.


CES is the biggest tech trade show in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors flocking to Las Vegas every year to check out the thousands of exhibitors and their latest wares. CES 2025 is a long way off yet, with the show set to take place on Jan 7 – Jan 10, 2025 (Tuesday-Friday). We already know the dates for CES 2026 too, which you can find below.

Despite being a trade show by nature – i.e. not for 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. Whether it’s new gaming monitors, the latest CPU and GPU releases, new PC cases, or the latest gaming laptops, the show covers the lot. 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 2025 dates

CES 2025 is taking place between January 7-10, 2025 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The exact dates shift every year, in accordance with it being a mid-week event, but it generally takes place in the second week of January.

CES 2026 will take place on the January 6-9, 2026, with it moving nearly a full week ahead of the CES 2024 dates of January 9-12. That leaves even less time for those attending to recover from their winter holiday excesses but will bring the latest tech announcements to us even sooner.

Where is CES 2025?

The Las Vegas Convention Center is the main hub of CES, with the massive event space hosting hundreds of booths where companies get to show off their latest gear. The event also sees meetings take place across Las Vegas, with The Venetian hotel being one of the main hosts. Meanwhile, the Mandalay Bay will host all the main press conferences on the first day of the show – the official press-only day.

CES 2025 registration

You can only register for CES 2025 if you can provide proof of industry affiliation. This means working for a relevant company or within the media. But if you’re eligible, registration is already open.

If you are eligible to apply, registration is open via this link. CES is not a ticketed event, so the public cannot access it but any professionals related to or interested in the tech industry can attend. It’s worth registering good and early, to make sure you can plan your time at the show long before the holiday season madness that precedes it.

CES 2025 notable attendees

So far, there are no announced attendees for CES 2025 yet but previous big names include Intel, AMD, Samsung, Google, LG, Razer, Logitech, Hisense, Adobe, Qualcomm, and many more. We’d fully expect to see similarly high-calibre attendees next year.

What to expect at CES 2025

We’re a long way from having any meaningful rumors about what lies ahead for CES 2025. However, we can expect AI to play an ever bigger part in our tech worlds – it was huge at CES 2024 – meanwhile OLED screens also made a big splash this year, suggesting they will move ever closer to being the standard option for gaming monitors by next year.
