The international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is coming to Israel. The major technology-related trade show, which takes place each January in Las Vegas, is also held in a smaller format in New York, Paris and London – and now in Tel Aviv too.

The CES exhibition is the central stage for displaying the year's most significant technological innovations in the world of electronics. It includes phones, computers, cameras and a slew of other technological devices, and is attended by more than 150,000 participants from all over the world.

According to CES representatives in Israel, the Tel Aviv exhibition will display 40 companies from Israel and the world and will include launches and announcements, the scale of which remains unclear.

Although no one expects an international product to be launched in Israel of all places, but the fact that such an organization acknowledges Israel's technological power demonstrates the State's influence on the world of technology.

Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), which is in charge of the CES exhibition around the world, will arrive in Israel to supervise the event, as will official representatives of major electronic companies.

The CES Unveiled Tel Aviv event will be held at the Hilton Hotel on Monday, October 7. Admission is free, although the event will only be open to members of the local high-tech industry and the media.
