CES Unveiled Amsterdam Showcases Tech Changing Lives for Good

Del

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM today made several major announcements at CES Unveiled Amsterdam, a tech event bringing together top media, exhibitors and investors to celebrate European innovation and experience a sneak peek of the trends expected at CES® 2019. Owned and produced by CTA, CES 2019 will run from January 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

To commemorate World Tourism Day today, CTA announced a brand-new tourism area at CES 2019 to highlight the importance of technology and innovation in tourism. Attendees will be able to see and experience how technology helps customize and advance the travel experience. In addition to show floor exhibits, conference programming will dive into the role that tech plays in helping the global travel and tourism industry create personalized experiences that also provide sustainable economic growth opportunities for local communities.

Announced for the first time at CES Unveiled Amsterdam, CTA’s fourth book Ninja Future: Secrets to Success in the New World of Innovation (HarperCollins, 2019), will be released at CES 2019. In the book, author Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA, explains the evolving technological landscape - breakthroughs underway now and those we can only envision. Drawing on the insights he has gleaned as a martial arts black belt, he covers how businesses and governments can move to succeed in today’s turbulent environment by adopting the mindset of “ninjas”—adapting to technological change to capitalize on opportunities at lightning speed. Shapiro is also the New York Times best-selling author of Ninja Innovation: The Ten Killer Strategies of the World’s Most Successful Businesses (HarperCollins, 2013) and The Comeback: How Innovation Will Restore the American Dream (Beaufort, 2011).

Additionally, 31 tech companies from the Netherlands and the surrounding region were announced as CES® 2019 Innovation Honorees. Among them, Dutch company EVBox was honored in the Smart Energy category and Qoobi was honored in the High Performance Home Audio/Video category.

“The companies recognized as this year’s CES Innovation honorees represent the drive that is taking our global industry to new heights,” said Karen Chupka, executive vice president, CES, CTA. “The products honored today offer solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges and will change our lives and our world for the better.”

The remaining Innovation honorees will be announced at CES Unveiled Paris on October 3, 2018, and CES Unveiled New York on November 8, 2018. The full list of Honorees will be posted online at CES.tech and showcased at CES 2019, January 8-11.

Executives also announced that CTA will again partner with StartupDelta for CES 2019. Representing the Netherland’s commitment to innovation, StartupDelta will bring a delegation of Dutch startups to CES 2019 to be featured in Eureka Park, the startup hub of CES.

Now in its second year, CES Unveiled Amsterdam brought together 634 attendees from 19 countries, including 64 exhibitors from the Netherlands and surrounding regions. Continuing the focus and celebration of European innovation, CES Unveiled Paris will take place next Wednesday, October 3.

CES 2019 will showcase life-changing technology across every major industry, featuring 4,500 companies across 2.75M net square feet (260K net square meters) of exhibit space. The show provides access to the very latest transformative tech such as 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, smart home, smart cities, sports, machine intelligence and more.
