CES® 2017 unites the global tech community and will draw 50,000 industry professionals from some 150 countries. The show will bring together exhibiting companies from 57 countries, up nine percent from 2016. In addition, Eureka Park™, the flagship destination for startups at CES 2017, will return for its sixth year. Featuring more than 600 startups from 33 countries, Eureka Park will bring groups of startups from four new countries– the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Ukraine – to exhibit at CES 2017. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, CES 2017 will run January 5-8, in Las Vegas, NV.

“The world truly comes to CES,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “In some way, shape or form, every major technology company on the planet participates in our show. Global leaders from companies large and small, government, media and more convene at CES to share or experience the latest products and services, meet their next business partner, make deals and/or simply learn about the next wave of tech that is transforming our world for the better.”

Many international attendees travel to CES as part of the International Buyer Program (IBP)-led delegations. CES is a participant in the IBP, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration. CES 2017 is expecting more than 100 Official CES Delegations from around the globe.

Reinforcing its global reach, CES 2017 has several areas designed specifically to highlight the international aspects of the show. The Global Technology Marketplace will be home to the nearly 900 international exhibitors at CES 2017. Located in both the Westgate and Sands, Level 1, Hall G, this show floor area will highlight innovative technologies and products from around the world. To help make the most of the CES experience, international attendees have access to an array of services and resources including an International Matchmaking Reception, International Business Centers (IBCs) and on-site interpreters.

“We look forward to participating in CES 2017,” said Art Stavenka, founder and director, Kino-mo, based in London, UK. “We’ve been looking for the best way to launch our new technology that allows images to appear floating in the air – the new holograms for mass market – and expose it to the media. CES provides us a perfect platform for the launch of such a product to the many industry stakeholders we meet there every year.”

“We launched HEASE Robotics because we believe that robotics will change our lives,” said Jade Le Maître, CTO and CO-founder of Lyon, France-based HEASE Robotics. “We built a robot that is fun, simple, and interactive by design. We are looking forward to meeting potential customers and gathering feedback at CES. It’s incredible how startups gain visibility when exhibiting at Eureka Park.”
