The world of tech will soon make its annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas for CES 2019, billed as the world’s biggest technology trade show.

Acting as a showcase for this year’s most anticipated products, it also acts as a gauge for what tech trends to expect in the years ahead.

Some of the world’s biggest companies will be there, including LG, Samsung and Sony, though Apple will once again be among the notable absentees. 

Officially kicking off on 8 January at the Mandalay Bay, the conference will open for press and preview viewings on 6 January, before the whole thing concludes on 11 January.

All the latest news and unveilings will be covered by The Independent but until then here’s everything to expect from this year’s tech extravaganza.null
