The delegation will arrive in Las Vegas for the event from January 5–8, 2017. The arrival of the delegation is a testament of the region’s pole position in digital technology and France’s increasing presence in this field.
CES 2017 will also see 37 new French startups at the event and 10 of them have already won the CES Innovation Award for their products. The awards are granted to companies with the most innovative new products.
The delegation will be headed by the Minalogic digital technology cluster. The delegation will also be supervised and funded by the Auvergne region’s economic development agency (ARDE) along with the European Union.
Other partners involved in sending the delegation include the clusters Imaginove, Clust’RNumérique, and Numélink. The delegation will be received at CES by representatives of companies like SEB and STMicroelectronics along with elected officials from the state of Nevada.
CES is not just a display event but also a strategic event for companies to meet and form link with other companies. The delegation from France will benefit greatly by gaining exposure to technology companies from all over the world.
To make sure all attendees take full advantage of the opportunities presented at CES, Minalogic and ARDE, have been offering support to other companies for the last several months.
They came up with the program called “On the Road to CES” consisting of six workshops to show companies how the exhibit booth design, social media, regulatory issues, and business can be handled at the event.
