CES Unveiled in Paris
After two years of absence, CES Unveiled returned to Paris on October 19th, 2021 at the Palais Brongniart for its 8th edition. In fact, it was a real pleasure to rediscover Gary Shapiro and as he usually does he presented a big show with personalities from the tech world.
CES came a week after President Macron announced a new plan for investing in our future, which is titled “France 2030” that addresses climate change, but also the need for food planning, demographic pressure and inevitably confirms the fact that our economies are growing older and older.
The tone has been set, Cédric O, (Secretary of State for Digital Transition and Electronic Communications of France), explained “ this year is not only a knowledge economy and creating value, well, it’s about creating sustainable value “. Essentially, we have to accept that it’s imperative that we modify and transform the way we are consuming, the way we are behaving, and adapt to how our economy is evolving. We have to be able to innovate more to answer to the great challenges we’re facing.
CES 2022 is going to be live and in person and will address current innovations, as Karen Chupka (EVP, CES) said. Today there are over 1100 companies who have committed to exhibit in Las Vegas, and that number keeps growing every day.

This year we will see categories such as food tech, space tech, digital health and digital assets. The past 14 months have highly impacted our behavior, including how and what we buy. Tech will play a huge role in our transition.
