Twenty Dmv-based Businesses Will Have Booths At The National Tech Conference

Who will represent the DC area at CES in 2023? Twenty DMV-based businesses will have booths at the national tech conference. Andrew Yu, CEO of Armored Fresh, spoke with us about his plans for the event.

The biggest tech trade show in the world, CES, begins in Las Vegas, Nevada. Furthermore, there is no shortage of DMV-area businesses participating as exhibitors and attendees.

The massive conference covering all things tech is expected to draw more than 3,000 exhibitors and 100,000 attendees this year. From January 5 to 8, a variety of manufacturers, developers, suppliers, consumer technology developers, and other professionals with an interest in the industry will be present.

At CES 2022, the alternative dairy business Armored Fresh from McLean, Virginia, made its dairy-free cheese debut. It intends to introduce two new innovations this year, including sliced American-style cheese and a feature that makes its product mimic the melt-in-your-mouth sensation of genuine cheese.

CEO Andrew Yu advised first-timers to make the most of the conference's few days even though he claimed that an experience at CES is greatly influenced by a visitor's goals.

For me, gathering information is everything, Yu wrote in an email to Technical.ly. CES is a great place to see everyone come together to showcase their goods because, a lot of the time, we get caught up in our own silos. It's great to get out and see what others are doing. Just relax and take it all in.
