The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) will welcome U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM) and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) at the upcoming CES 2024, a world-leading tech event. On Friday, 12 January, at 11:00am PST, the Senators will discuss the status of and outlook for key legislation affecting technology companies and American consumers.“We are thrilled to welcome a very impressive and influential group of government officials to CES 2024,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “We look forward to these conversations about how the tech industry can work together with key government officials to ensure that innovation continues to thrive in the United States.”

FDA Commissioner Robert Califf, FCC Commissioners Brendan Carr and Anna Gomez, and FTC Commissioner Rebecca Slaughter will participate in the “Conversation with a Commissioner” session, a series of one-on-one conversations, beginning on Wednesday, 10 January, at 10:20am PST.

Another panel with federal officials on Thursday, 11 January, at 10:20am PST, will feature Anne Neuberger, Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Tech, Alexander Hoehn-Saric, Chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and Paul Rosen, Assistant Secretary for Investment Security at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Other federal officials scheduled to discuss tech policy at CES 2024 include:

  • Laurie Locascio, Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology and Director, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • Kathi Vidal, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director, United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)
  • Dimitri Kusnezov, Under Secretary for Science and Technology, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • Alan Davidson, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information and Administrator, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)

These speakers join more than 160 international, federal, state and local government officials and staff who will participate in the Leaders in Technology Program and attend the Innovation Policy Summit (IPS) at CES, which convenes top innovators and policymakers to discuss the future of policy around a range of pressing technology issues, including privacy, health innovation, trade policy, competition, artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, and more.

As CES 2024 is a major international event with over a third of participants coming from outside the United States and more than 150 countries represented, international policy will again be a point of significant focus. This includes the return of Human Security For All (HS4A), a global campaign led by the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security and the World Academy of Art and Science. One session at this year’s HS4A programming will feature Amandeep Singh Gill, the UN Secretary General’s Envoy.

Owned and produced by CTA, CES 2024 will take place in Las Vegas on 9-12 January with Media Days taking place 7-8 January. Attendees will experience new technologies from global brands, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees. The show will highlight how innovations in AI, sustainability, transportation and mobility, digital health, and more are addressing the world’s greatest challenges.
