In 2019, more than 400 French startups will be exhibiting at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, including 160 at Eureka Park. For the sixth consecutive year, Business France is supporting French startups, who will be present in the French Tech pavilion (Eureka Park) and at the France stand dedicated to technologies serving the car of the future (LVCC Central Plaza).
Business France and a jury of experts have selected 26 startups from among French Tech businesses who will expose their innovations. They were selected due to them filling three criteria: the innovative character of their products, the capacity to take full advantage of exhibiting at the CES, and their potential for industrial and commercial success.
Business France is also making a particular effort this year to bring together a wide number of startups receiving support from France’s regions: Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Bretagne (Brittany), Centre-Val de Loire, Hauts de France, Île de France, Normandie, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Occitanie and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
Cars are gradually gaining their place at the CES, and more and more automobile makers are revealing their new technologies at the show, as Karen Chupka, Senior Vice-President of the CES, explains. Moreover, for the second year in a row, Business France is organizing a France pavilion dedicated to technologies serving the car of the future. Located in the Central Plaza (Pavilion CP-4), a space given over to the ecosystem of connected and autonomous vehicles, the pavilion will play host to 10 businesses who will benefit from exhibition space and appointment possibilities with major contractors from the sector.
For the first time, Business France will be a partner for the CES Government, which will take place on January 10 to 12 at the MGM Park, bringing together officials and industry representatives to discover the latest innovations.
