The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) recently announced that the Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg will deliver a keynote address at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019. CES is the global showcase for 5G driving innovation across industries, from smart cities to self-driving vehicles, digital health, telecom and more.

Vestberg will be exploring the future of connectivity through 5G as it fuels new technologies and services that will blend our physical and digital worlds. He will take a deep dive into the impact 5G will have and how it will change our world for the better; from building smart cities infrastructure to improving education, aiding first responders and beyond.

“Verizon is paving the way for 5G, which will improve the lives of citizens around the world fundamentally changing how we live, work and play,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Only at CES can you touch, see and feel 5G’s impact across industries and hear from global experts leading the charge to harness the potential of 5G and its impact on future innovation. We welcome Hans Vestberg to CES keynote stage and look forward to hearing Verizon’s plans for the future that will spur new markets, create new jobs and connect communities around the world.”
