Charleston | South Carolina is ready to tackle CES in January 2020.
Known for its massive size (2.9 million+ net square feet of exhibit space!) and industry lure, CES (formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show), has become the world’s gathering place for IT, innovation, and next gen ideation. It attracts the world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers.
CRDA and the Upstate Alliance are collaborating for CES 2020, January 7-10 in Las Vegas, NV. The end game: Attract IT-related companies and talent to our state. We will be joined by representatives from South Carolina Department of Commerce, Clemson University-International Automotive Research, and South Carolina Power Team.
Tech is no longer a siloed industry sector and is increasingly becoming a critical component for many advanced industries, particularly automotive. The industry disruption is real. Companies must adopt new technologies in order to remain competitive and to keep up with consumer expectations. CES is where these new technologies and the latest concepts are showcased for industry professionals across the globe.
With more than 8,500 IT companies and manufacturers (and growing!), South Carolina knows the importance of championing its tech ecosystem. To keep the momentum going, initiatives like TechSC and SC Codes have been created.
With 600+ tech companies, a skilled talent pool, two major automotive OEMs and 65+ related companies and suppliers, and an ever-expanding supportive ecosystem for business and talent, Charleston is an emerging innovation hub.
Our presence at CES will give us the opportunity to share more information about these initiatives and explain why South Carolina is Just Right for doing business.
