Unveiling Future-Focused Targus Innovations at CES 2021

Targus kicked off 2021 stronger and more connected than ever by showcasing its latest technological innovations at the world’s largest technology tradeshow, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), hosted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) last week. CES 2021, the first-of-its-kind virtual show in CES’s 50 + year history, delivered a virtually immersive experience revealing the industry’s best consumer breakthroughs and technologies. In true Targus fashion, future-focused product engineering and innovative design was center stage at CES 2021. 

Media, Press, and Awards 

 As a direct response to previously unforeseen global challenges, the latest generation of Targus design revealed adaptive technology like the new UV-C LED Disinfection Light, 2Office Antimicrobial Backpack, as well as antimicrobial tablet cases and mice to name a few.
