The MIBA kicked off the new year with its first ever visit to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This largest of its kind technology showcase regularly attracts numerous Israeli companies to show off their technology to industry experts and technology enthusiasts.
Over 60 Israeli companies exhibited at this year’s conference, including 21 that displayed within the Israel Pavilion sponsored by our partners at the Israel Economic Mission to the US. The MIBA was thrilled to host the Lt. Governor Garlan Gilchrist II and MEDC CEO Quentin Messer, Jr. at the Israel Pavilion, where they met with dignitaries from Israel and got to experience firsthand just a couple of the unique Israeli technology companies that were on display.
In addition to connecting with Israeli companies on the exhibition floor, our smart mobility partners, EcoMotion, hosted a reception to unveil a multitude of mobility startups. The MIBA was also able to secure exhibition space at the Michigan Office of Future Mobility and Electrification’s reception to expose Israeli innovation to a wide but focused audience.
We are looking forward to the various connections and collaborations that will come of this visit. Check out this newsletter’s “Spotlight on Innovation” segment below to see just a couple of the companies we met while on the ground.
