Nearly all application fields were represented: eHealth for patients, the connected home for easier living, digital and human interaction in Industry 4.0, the social and human collaborative model, Man in the city of the future, and education and leisure to enhance learning. These regional businesses wanted to use their presence in America to raise their profile, check out the competition and establish business contacts to expand their international reach.
