CES or the Consumer Electronics Show is the biggest consumer tech event, which is currently being held in Las Vegas, USA. While the official numbers aren’t out yet, more than 200,000 visitors are expected to attend the event and over 4,500 companies are expected to participate. Out of these, 50 companies are Dutch startups presenting themselves at CES 2020 at Eureka Park, Netherlands Tech Square – booth #51726.
Government of The Netherlands approved the envoy of 50 Dutch startups for CES 2020 back in October last year. The delegation is being accompanied by State Secretary for Economic Affairs and Climate Policy Mona Keijzer and Special Envoy of Techleap.nl, His Royal Highness Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands. The selected startups are based around five themes or clusters, which are:
- The Future of Energy Transition & e-Mobility
- The Future of City Living and Circular Economy
- The Future of Consumer Technology Trends
- The Future of Life sciences
- The Future of Education and Enterprise
CES is one of the best places for companies to demonstrate their offerings. The 50 Dutch startups present at the event will have an opportunity to engage with an international audience of investors, potential partners and new customers. The Netherlands Tech Square pavilion at CES 2020 is one of the largest single-country pavilions and is based on the theme “future-proof the world with us.” It promotes The Netherlands, and Amsterdam, as a lucrative destination for tech companies to do business. Here’s the complete list of startups that are present at the event.
