Welcome to CES, the largest gathering of consumer technology startups, manufacturers, entrepreneurs and innovators in the world. The event has served as a worldwide showcase for the newest consumer technologies for more than 50 years. But, make no mistake, this is much more than bright lights and the latest gadgets.
The MEDC and Planet teams attended CES 2020 to connect with tech startups, entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world, highlighting Michigan's entrepreneurial ecosystem as the ideal business climate to establish partnerships and bring next-generation technologies to market.
From putting the world on wheels more than a hundred years ago to helping to define how future generations will live and move, Michigan's culture of innovation is driving the future of consumer technology.
At CES in Las Vegas, Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist and MEDC CEO Jeff Mason are leading a Michigan delegation to connect with tech companies and innovators from around the world to strengthen relationships and explore potential partnerships.
Mobility Technology was on the move at CES 2020 - on the show floor and on the streets of Las Vegas - and Michigan companies and partners paved the way.
At CES 2019, Pure Michigan Business Connect and PlanetM held a series of pre-qualified, one-on-one business meetings where startups, suppliers, and corporate businesses are paired up to pitch ideas, connect potential partners, and create global business leads for Michigan companies.
The connections continued at CES 2020, with the teams hosting more than 150 pre-scheduled match meetings at the Bellagio.
