Technology and innovation conference CES is coming to Amsterdam in October. The event in Amsterdam will feature a preview of everything that will be presented at the CES Las Vegas next year, AD reports.

CES Unveiled Amsterdam is intended to bring startups, large tech companies and investors from the Netherlands and neighboring countries together. According to the organization, Amsterdam is the ideal location to do this because the Netherlands gives space for technology and innovation to flourish. 

CES is the world's largest technology and innovation conference. The fact that the event is coming to the Dutch capital can in a large part be attributed to Prince Constantijn, according to the newspaper. As startup ambassador for the Netherlands, he worked hard to sell the possibility of CES in Amsterdam during the last edition of the conference. 

The Amsterdam preview of CES will be held in the Beurs van Berlage on October 26th. Registration for the event will start this summer. The regular edition of the conference is happening in Las Vegas between January 9th and 12th next year.
