MILAN, May 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Trieste-based Area Science Park, one of Italy’s leading research and innovation centres, is teaming up with Teorema Engineering and the Italian Trade Agency to bring a large delegation of digital start-up inventors and entrepreneurs to the Consumer Electronics Show, to be held in Las Vegas from January 7 to January 10, 2020.
The idea is to select the best of Italian tech startups in order to showcase their achievements at the world’s largest tech show, and offer them the opportunity to present their talent and innovative skills on the global market.
“In recent years, the Italian start-up market has grown significantly”, explains Stefano Casaleggi, Managing Director of Area Science Park. “The number of innovative startups has increased, the quality of the projects has improved, and meanwhile we are observing more and more synergy between these new realities and already established companies. We strongly believe that startups can be a driver for economic growth and for the competitiveness of the country’s industry. This is why, mindful of the positive results achieved last year, in 2020 we plan to bring the biggest delegation ever to CES next January.”
