The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), a technology trade association, announced June 23 that the third annual CES Unveiled Paris will be held on Oct. 21 at the Pavillon Cambon-Capucines in Paris, France.
Registration is open for CES Unveiled Paris, one in a series of the global CES Unveiled events designed to bring innovative technology companies, top press, industry analysts, buyers and key consumer electronics (CE) influencers together to showcase new products and tech trends leading up to CES 2016. Owned and produced by CEA, CES 2016 will run Jan. 6-9, 2016, in Las Vegas.
CES Unveiled Paris will feature a CES press conference with announcements from CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro and a consumer technology trends presentation from CEA’s market research team. The half-day, industry-only event also will feature ground-breaking innovations from budding startups and established international brands.
“The decision to return CES Unveiled to Paris was easy. The innovation coming from France is ground-breaking and is putting the country on the map as a digital power broker in the global economy,” said Shapiro. “Last year’s CES hosted 70 French startup companies in our Eureka Park Marketplace, a designated area on the show floor for startup technologies and services. We look forward to seeing France’s leading innovators at this year’s CES in Las Vegas and CES Unveiled Paris will provide a sneak peek into their latest breakthroughs.”
CEA will partner with La Poste, France’s mail service provider, committed to bringing innovative technology solutions to legacy industries. La Poste has recently launched its “French IoT” program in support of connected innovation throughout startups, large companies and competitive clusters in France.
“We were very proud, last January, to be the first French group to reveal an IoT platform at CES,” stated Phillippe Wahl, group CEO, La Poste. “Our ambition is to become a leader in developing new digital services combining disruptive technology and human services. We consider IoT as a key element of our strategy, backed with strong values of proximity and confidence that La Poste carries forever. Thus, we actively support and promote local and national innovative projects, from both startup and large companies. Our partnership with CEA for CES Unveiled is a strong asset in achieving this goal.”
