What is CES?

CES is the Consumer Electronics Show. Held in Las Vegas every January, this event brings together 182,000 visitors from all over the world. It makes CES the global platform of innovation to validate your product and attract interest from across the globe.

Why are we taking startups there?

CES offers a fantastic opportunity for Dutch companies to engage with an international audience of investors, potential partners and new customers. In previous years, startup companies involved with market-leading multinationals have seen new business generation. 95% of startups who participated would recommend it to others.
CES is the largest technology fair in the world. Every year, the latest technologies and next-generation innovations are shown to the market. More than ever, the focus this year is to present resilient technologies that will make the world future-proof. Plus, to offer solutions to social and global challenges in the areas of the energy transition, healthy living, health and sustainability, water and food, and smart cities.
