The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced that General Motors (GM) Chair and CEO Mary Barra will deliver the opening keynote at CES 2022, the world's most influential technology event. CES 2022 will be held January 5-8 in Las Vegas. 

Barra will once again return to the CES keynote stage, sharing GM’s vision for mass adoption of electric vehicles. She will discuss how technology and the all-electric era will create opportunities for mobility experiences to serve the planet and the people.

The automotive sector is tracking for record growth at CES 2022 with already over 180 companies registered and ready to launch products and conduct face-to-face meetings. Some companies include GM, Daimler AG, Fisker, Turing Auto, Waymo, and more.

"CES is the global stage for brands to showcase their commitment to driving change,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Mary Barra disrupted an industry at an inflection point by showing the potential of an all-electric future. GM stock hit an all-time high following the show. We are thrilled for her return at CES 2022 and look forward to hearing the progress GM has made towards an all-electric future and its vision for how this technology will benefit our planet.”

Barra has served as CEO of GM since January 15, 2014 and Chair of the GM Board of Directors since January 4, 2016.

She joins recently confirmed T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert as a keynote speaker. The CES keynote schedule will be updated regularly as keynote speakers are announced. 

For over 50 years, CES has been the global stage for innovation, and CES 2022 will provide an opportunity for companies from around the world, both large and small, to launch products, build brands and form partnerships.
