When our Uber (yes, we have been taking Uber all over Paris) pulled up to CES Unveiled Paris at the Palais Brongniart, I was thrilled to see the world’s third largest wire service, Agence France-Presse, was across the street. I have been working with them for decades. Associated Press and Reuters are one and two, respectively. I saluted and off we went to CES.
I can’t believe I made it. I have been talking to Eliot about attending one of these foreign tech shows for years, and this year, we decided to pick the one CES does in Paris. These are mini tech CES satellite shows, mostly for start-ups. Many of the exhibitors haven’t even started selling their products yet. That’s why I wanted to attend the show. Meet and greet before the other PR agencies pitch them.
