Over 100 exhibiting companies and more than 1000 attendees, including more than 60 media, gathered at CES Unveiled events this week in Paris and Amsterdam. Focused on “Tech for a Better Tomorrow,” the events featured remarks by Jean-Noël Barrot, Minister Delegate for the Digital Economy for France, Micky Adriaansens, Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy of the Netherlands, and other senior government and industry leaders.
The Unveiled events also recognized CES 2023 Innovation Award Honorees from both countries. Twenty-seven products from France and twelve from the Netherlands received honors, selected from a record high of over 2100 submissions.
“Technology is transformational – improving the lives of millions and helping to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges,” said Gary Shapiro, President and CEO, CTA. “I was thrilled to shine a bright light on European technologies driving change and offer attendees an early look at some of the innovations we’ll see at CES 2023 in January.”
“People were thrilled to be back together at CES Unveiled Paris and Amsterdam, and counting down to CES 2023,” said John T. Kelley, vice president and acting show director, CES. “We look forward to seeing many of our featured European startups again in January, alongside the more than 1300 companies already committed to exhibit in Las Vegas.”
CES Unveiled returned to Paris on Monday, October 10 with 20 exhibitors, including BBalance, Humetrix, Wisear and Valeo. The conference program included a conversation between CTA’s Shapiro and Minister Barrot on technology’s role in addressing global issues – such as food and healthcare access, energy production and environmental protection – and where French companies can make the biggest impact.
