The CES 2018 officially opened its doors today with more than 3,900 exhibitors, including 800 of the most innovative and early-stage startups of the show located at the Eureka Park.
For the third year in a row, France will be the first most represented country outside of the U.S. - which is showcasing 280 startups - at CES' Eureka Park, with more than 274 startups, representing every major industry, from the latest in self-driving vehicles, smart cities, AI, sports tech, robotics, health and fitness tech and more.
"This is a huge jump, more than 50% from last year," explained Adrien Cabo, in charge of the international development for the French Tech scene. "And for the first time at CES, French startups now represent 1/3 of all the international companies showcased at the Eureka Park, far more than Holland or China combined."
However, because of the amount of French startups and the way they are scattered around the show floor - by France's geographical regions or states (Paris, Normandy, Provence...) rather than by industries or technologies - it's very hard to actually find the ones that could best match your interest.
