Read about Robin’s reflections and takeaways below:

CES and Las Vegas is the place to be if one wants to get a glimpse of what’s next to come within the startup and technology sector from all over the world. It was fantastic connecting with numerous promising startups and companies. For those interested in discovering new startup opportunities, check out the IndX 2024 challenges.

One of the most impressive things was numerous new strategic partnerships between large and small companies. For example, I tried smart glasses made by Ray-Ban and Meta, which were quite impressive. Everyone seems convinced that strategic cooperation is the way to go in the future. This trend of collaboration underscores the significance of what we do at IndX, alongside our partners like Saab, Toyota Material Handling Europe, Husqvarna, and Väderstad.

The floor at Eureka Park did not disappoint either. The standout theme? AI and sensors – accessible everywhere for everyone, from pets to industrial machines. The array of AI-powered pet gadgets was astounding!

With 130,000 attendees, Las Vegas was the perfect spot with its massive structures and stunning views, proving to be an ideal backdrop for such a great event.

CES was more than just a technology showcase; it was a glimpse into a future where AI and sensor technology seamlessly integrate into every aspect of our lives. Excited to bring these insights into our work at IndX and Indtech!
