CES Las Vegas
CES is the most influential tech event in the world. It is the proving ground for breakthrough technologies and global innovators. This is where the world's biggest brands do business and meet new partners. Where the sharpest innovators hit the stage. CES features every aspect of the tech sector.
In January 2022, 70 innovative Dutch growth companies attended CES in Las Vegas. In 2022 the Dutch delegation also included 20 scale-ups besides the 50 start-ups. Before the trade fair takes place, the CES awards prizes to a select number of inventions for ‘outstanding design and engineering’ as part of the CES Innovation Awards. Of the 34 Dutch submissions, 14 received an Innovation Award — our best ever haul! In previous years, the Netherlands has always won one or two of these prizes.
