Chinese technology companies seeking to challenge the dominance of US companies including Amazon and Tesla have flooded Las Vegas, making up more than a quarter of those attending this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Around 1,300 of the 4,500 show attendees are Chinese, according to data from the Consumer Technology Association which runs the show.
Byton sought to raise its profile by making one of the first announcements at the show, unveiling its “truly smart” car on Sunday.
In comparison to the biggest US tech companies, which have often sought a low profile at the trade show, the major Chinese internet companies are being public about their ambitions.
The online retail giant Alibaba is taking out a major display area at CES, and Richard Yu, the chief executive of Chinese telecoms giant Huawei, is due to deliver a high-profile keynote address.
