Exclusive: Two of the world’s largest tech communities join forces

CES Unveiled Amsterdam and World Summit AI are to partner in an October Summit, in a move that reinforces Amsterdam as a global technology epicentre.  

The Consumer Technology Association® (CTA) and InspiredMinds ™ flagship product World Summit AI (WSAI), the world’s leading AI event, announced their new partnership to co-locate CES Unveiled Amsterdam at global tech summit – World Summit AI this October.

CES Unveiled Amsterdam will take place at the Taets Art & Event Park on 12 October, 2023, the second day of the WSAI Summit, in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. Amsterdam is a top global hub for technology innovation and this new partnership will serve, some say, as Europe’s most influential tech event.

“We are thrilled to partner with World Summit AI on CES Unveiled Amsterdam,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Amsterdam is a global technology hotspot, with a focus on start-ups and tech advancements that bring real-world solutions to some of our most pressing global challenges. We are excited to bring exhibitors from across Europe together to show off cutting-edge innovations that will improve lives around the world.”   

The theme for CES Unveiled Amsterdam is Tech for One World, with exhibits and conference programming focused on collaboration between industries and countries to solve global issues. Conference topics will include sustainability, the latest global tech trends, and what to expect at CES 2024. Owned and produced by CTA, CES® 2024, the world’s most powerful tech event, returns to Las Vegas, 9-12 January, 2024.

World Summit AI is the largest recognised AI community globally and has become a key summit dedicated to advancing strategies for AI development.

“InspiredMinds – the global community behind World Summit AI is super excited to join forces with CES. The state of AI currently calls for inter-disciplinary consensus from large scale communities: CTA and InspiredMinds combined creates what is the largest community of tech players globally. Amsterdam has been the home of WSAI – the world leading AI Summit – for seven years now and having recently announced that the Netherlands had won the bid once again to host World Summit AI in the tech capital of Amsterdam for three more years, I am beyond excited to lead the charge into new realms with this next step in our ambitions to become the ‘only tech summit in the world that matters’. The partnership with CES Unveiled Amsterdam will combine our global force to become the most influential AI and Tech summit in the world,” said Sarah Porter (pictured), CEO and Founder, World Summit AI and InspiredMinds.

“Tech is driving major change across every aspect of our lives and AI will be a leading topic of conversation at WSAI and on the road to CES 2024,” said Kinsey Fabrizio, senior vice-president CES and Membership, CTA. “Our partnership with World Summit AI shines a spotlight on AI’s impact in Europe and around the world. We look forward to highlighting the latest innovations and tech trends at CES Unveiled Amsterdam.”
