CES: The Sud Region Wows the Crowds with the Largest Delegation of French Start-Ups!


The world’s largest tech and innovation trade fair, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, welcomed more than 175 000 professionals for its 2020 edition.

This year, 4000 exhibitors took advantage of this international showcase to present 20 000 technological innovations. By welcoming nearly 6400 journalists, the CES confirmed its position as the leading trade fair for the tech sector and allowed visitors to discover the major trends and the rising stars of the start-up universe.

This year, the CES delegation led by the Region Sud and its institutional partners—the Aix-Marseille Provence, Nice-Côte d’Azur, Toulon Provence Méditerranée metro areas and the Sophia Antipolis agglomerationallowed 30 selected start-ups to benefit from high visibility and exceptional media coverage at the Region Sud space at the France Pavilion in Eureka Park.

France was the second most-represented nation at CES behind the United States and, with the largest French delegation of start-ups, the Sud region stood out as France’s leading innovative territory with nine awards obtained by seven of its most promising emerging companies.*

With start-ups from the Sud region making an average of 60 new business contacts per day, the CES enabled companies to meet potential prospects, partners, or investors, and to promote their innovation and expertise on an international stage.
