There won't be new emoji in 2021 because of coronavirus

  There won't be new emoji in 2021 because of coronavirus The coronavirus pandemic is hitting emoji. No new emoji will be unveiled in 2021. The planned annual release instead will be pushed back to 2022, according to the Unicode Consortium, a non-profit that oversees emoji standards and is responsible for new releases. That's because the coronavirus fallout has forced the Consortium to delay the new version of the Unicode Standard -- which underpins emoji -- by six months from March 2021 to September 2021. As a result of the new schedule, developers won't have enough lead time to create new emoji.

CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, it attracts the world's business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

Despite many conferences and trade shows being canceled in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, one show still plans to forge ahead in January: CES.

The world's largest tech trade show attracted over 175,000 attendees five months ago, just before the coronavirus went global. Many tech shows are waiting for a redo next year, like Mobile World Congress, the National Association of Broadcasters, developer conferences for Facebook, Google and Microsoft.

"While we plan to produce another in-person event in Las Vegas, we all face new considerations around attending conferences, conducting business and traveling to meetings," the show organizer, the Consumer Technology Association, says on its website. "Just as your companies are innovating to overcome the challenges this pandemic presents, we are adapting to the evolving situation."

There are millions dollars at stake, not just for the CTA, but the host city of Las Vegas — with the thousands of hotel rooms that regularly get sold out, restaurants, taxis and other components of the service economy that depend on large-scale events. CES 2021 is set to be held from January 6 to January 9.

The CES gadget show is dominated by flashy new TVs, cars and wacky gadgets, from the likes of Samsung, LG, TCL and Sony. Beyond the trade show floor, many companies rent rooms at the hotels for meetings as well.

CAS Awards Sets April 2021 Date Amid Oscars Shift

  CAS Awards Sets April 2021 Date Amid Oscars Shift The Cinema Audio Society has set an April 17, 2021 date for its 57th annual CAS Awards, the latest group to shift its timeline in the wake of the Oscars moving to its late April date as the industry re-calibrates amid the COVID-19 shutdown. The Oscars last week as expected shifted its February 28, 2021 date to April 25, the latest date ever since Oscar started the TV era in 1953. It started a domino effect among the other awards-season denizens to follow suit. The Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and BAFTA are among those that already shifted their dates, as well as eligibility periods, to sync with the Motion Picture Academy.

The coronavirus has called for most states to issue stay at home orders, to emphasize social distancing and for most people to wear face coverings when out and about and entering businesses.

The CTA said CES 2021 would be different from past exhibitions in that it would be cleaner and regularly sanitized, and promised better social distancing, "including widening aisles in many exhibit areas" and providing more space between seats in conference programs.

Shaking hands will be frowned upon, the CTA says, and it will suggest that attendees wear masks.
