The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced the return of its CES Unveiled event series to France for a fourth consecutive CES Unveiled Paris and a debut event, CES Unveiled Prague. These two events, uniting technology companies, members of the press, industry analysts, buyers, and consumer technology influencers, will serve as a prelude to CES 2017 .
The CES Unveiled events series will kick off with CES Unveiled Prague on Thursday, October 20 followed by CES Unveiled Paris on Tuesday, October 25. Breaking CES news and global market research will headline conference programming during the half-day event, followed by a tabletop exhibition networking reception.
"Every year we assess the global technology landscape in target markets when deciding where to host our CES Unveiled events abroad, and the entrepreneurial spirit that France brings to the tech eco-system through its innovation cities and startup parks makes it easy for us to come back to Paris year after year," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association. "Last year we had a crowded sold out exhibit area in Paris, and this year we are adding Prague to the lineup to serve as a hub for the Eastern and Central European market, it's a promising city with close proximity to other technology hotbeds and we look forward to seeing what this region will present at this year's events."
French companies at CES have tripled over the last two years, from 71 exhibitors in 2014 to 216 in 2016. France has the leading number of startups outside the U.S. in Eureka Park, the startup area at CES, representing 28 percent of marketplace exhibitors.
CES Unveiled Prague will provide innovative companies from across Europe the opportunity to showcase their cutting-edge technology to members of the press and stand out in consumer tech.
CES Unveiled Paris and Prague join the roster of domestic CES Unveiled events in New York and Las Vegas. Companies interested in exhibiting in any CES Unveiled event, can contact Aurelie Cornett.
