The partners

The Luxembourg National Pavilion CES 2020 is currently supported by two official sponsors: the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce and HP. Companies wishing to support the best of their countries and appear alongside startups on the stand can now contact the organizer for sponsorship partnerships. Such partnerships are incredibly helpful in reducing participation costs for startups. The objectives of such partnerships are to reduce the participation costs for startups and give them an international exposure.

The CES Villages

Luxfactory is, this year, an official partner of Village Francophone and MyGlobal Village. These two entities organize the essential events in Las Vegas in tandem with the show. Through the 17 sectoral groups (SmartMobility, SmartSupply, PropTech, etc.), these villages are essential venues for B2B meetings with guided tours, large networking events and pitch sessions. Last year, the jury members represented a combined turnover of 194 billion euros. These Villages have benefited massively from the presence of major innovation players such as Mounir Mahjoubi, ex-Secretary in charge of digital technology for France and Philippe Mouloubou, President of the Enedis Management Board, Pierre Fitzgibbon, Minister of the Economy and Innovation of Québec and Pierre-Yves Jeholet, Minister of Economy of the Walloon Government. Luxembourg will be in charge of the SpaceTech and FinTech clusters next year.

People who want to participate in the Villages alongside Luxembourg and benefit from a stay in CES are invited to contact Luxfactory. The package includes an entry to the CES, access to MyGlobal Village events, access to the events in the Francophone Village, access to cluster events for one year, and a guided tour of an area of their choice, all for a value of €990.

The CES

The CES is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs. In January 2019, Eureka Park brought together 1200 startups. More than 2000 private investors from the world of venture vapital and private equity walked the aisles last year. The event welcomed 182,000 visitors and more than 6200 media personnel from all over the world. This is the perfect opportunity for startups and their sponsors to get noticed.

Created in New York in 1967, CES is currently based in Las Vegas. It is the world’s largest innovation fair. Every year, thousands of exhibitors and professionals meet at CES to discuss the future of technology. It has historically been the place of major announcements that have marked the beginning of electronics and consumer R&D such as the VCR and DVDs.

Last year, Luxembourgish startups, in particular, shone. LuxAI won the Best Tech for a Better World” award and Koosmik won the Village’s “Jury’s Choice” award.

Notice to young and interested tech companies: Applications to represent Luxembourg in Las Vegas are now open on luxfactory.com.
