Beyond sharing a presence in the Upstate, there’s another common thread to these companies: Each seized the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations at the 2022 CES.
That’s the premier technology event formerly known as the “Consumer Electronics Show,” where hundreds of thought leaders gather “to show you how tech has never been more important in our lives,” according to the event site.
And there’s an emerging secret among the economic development community: CES is the place to be for exploring how manufacturing and technology collide, for catching mobility innovations as they roll out, and, for showcasing ecosystems like South Carolina to companies who might be considering new growth markets.
The Upstate Alliance team did just that in early January, partnering with Charleston Regional Development Alliance (CRDA) and the South Carolina Department of Commerce to represent our region as an international powerhouse destination where manufacturing and technology intersect — an environment just right for business.
To share in the storytelling, Team SC was joined by Pozyx, a Belgian real-time tracking technology provider with a Greenville office, and eGroup, a Charleston-headquartered IT service provider with clients in industries including health care, financial services and advanced logistics.
