About the event

The Department for International Trade is offering businesses an opportunity to visit Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the world’s gathering place for leading businesses from the consumer technologies industry.

The mission will provide a unique opportunity for any Northern Powerhouse based company operating in the 5G, automotive, blockchain, health and wellness, home and family, immersive entertainment, product design and manufacturing, robotics or sports sector to visit CES. The exhibition has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
