Las Vegas, January 11, 2019 – Today the largest consumer electronics show in the world came to an end. In four days, 4,400 companies showed their innovations to 182,000 visitors from more than 125 countries. The Netherlands was there with 50 of their best startups at the Holland Tech Pavilion, each one searching for growth at CES. Propeaq was one of those companies. Creating contacts, getting feedback from end users and gain inspiration.
The Dutch company Propeaq can look back on four successful days. Founder Toine Schoutens about CES: “Las Vegas is really a circus. Rarely have I ever experienced such a huge show. The beauty is that CES has a connection with the Digital Health Summit. Everyone who matters in the digital health-related product space is here. I was able to have great conversations and catch up with my scientific colleagues. It’s clear that light therapy is at the point of breaking through. A number of leaders in Olympic Sports have already embraced it. The Dutch team’s success with Propeaq light glasses has not gone unnoticed.”
It was also a very successful show for Propeaq when it comes to sales opportunities. Sales manager Rick Muller: “First of all, it’s great to meet so many people interested in digital solutions. Many business travelers struggle with jet lag and a lot of them are walking around CES. There is clearly a need for the solution we offer. Many buyers and distributors are also confirming the need for this product. We will soon be able to launch even better and better products. I expect that before long, we will be available for purchase in many more countries.”
Marketing specialist Albert Zeeman is also extremely satisfied. “A number of important influencers and media spontaneously stopped by. Our PR was pretty modest, and when you get so many people from the press at your stand, you can be happy. I am very satisfied with Startup Delta’s approach with Prince Constantijn as their ambassador. They really did everything they could to prepare all these startups for this show. I have been coming for 17 years and it is awesome to see the level at which the Dutch organization presented itself. A lot of countries should take note. When politicians such as Mona Keijzer (State Secretary for Economic Affairs) also get involved, they give those 50 startups a big boost. Without this initiative, we would not yet be here. The foundation has been laid for a successful 2019.”
