Thousands of tech companies from across the world have made their way to the annual CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) conference in Las Vegas this week to showcase groundbreaking new technology and form new cooperations, including at least two dozen Israeli startups. Some of these startups have already nabbed prestigious awards.
Sixteen of the Israeli companies are part of an official delegation, spearheaded by Israeli Ministry of Economy and Industry and the Israel Export Institute, to the convention, taking place January 9-12. A number of other Israeli startups, specializing in a variety of fields including VR and AR, robotics, autonomous driving and smart homes, are also taking part in the conference, whether individually or in partnership with American ventures, including several that will be unveiling new products.
The CES convention has for the past 50 years routinely served as “the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies,” and is considered “the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace,” according to CES. This year, over 180,000 people are expected to attend the show which will feature more than 4,000 exhibiting companies.
