From January the 5th to the 8th, SprintProject team and its delegation of Supply Chain and Retail Executives flew to the CES in Las Vegas, the world's leading trade show dedicated to innovation.

And what a pleasure to return to the halls of this legendary exhibition and to seek out the latest innovations and news that will impact the Supply Chain professions tomorrow!

Fabien ESNOULT, President of SprintProject looks back at the trends and new features of the show which this year welcomed nearly 3,200 exhibitors, 170 countries and 4,500 media over the 250,000 m² of the CES. Enough to get lost in this abundance of information, innovations and trends...

DAY 1 – Thursday January 5

Zoom on Eureka Park:

First impressions:

  • Strong presence of French start-ups;
  • No breakthrough innovation, but rather the application of technologies to concrete cases;
  • Diversity of subjects covered and innovations presented;
  • No revolutionary ideas in the Supply Chain (to be confirmed after the LVCC visit tomorrow);
  • Lots of immature solutions.

Trends :

  • The most represented: Health, AI, Security, Computer-assisted vision;
  • The big surprise: little presence of sustainability ;
  • Disappearance of omnipresent subjects 3 years ago: exoskeleton, voice, blockchain.

  • Always a lot of stuff on health, augmented reality (for applications other than gaming);
