At CES 2015, France was the best represented nation in Europe with 120 French exhibitors from a wide range of sectors, from healthcare to wearable tech, 3D sound and vision systems, to green tech. France ranks far ahead of the UK and Germany, and the fifth in the world (behind China, the USA, Taiwan and South Korea). In the Eureka Park, the startup marketplace at CES designed to launch new products and services, France ranks second behind the U.S. It accounts for 25% of all exhibiting startups, unlike China which will be poorly represented at the Eureka Park. The success of the French presence in 2014 is demonstrated by massive return in force: in 2015, there was 66 companies (up from 38 in 2014), a 73% increase.
