Seoul City will have its own pav­il­ion with the theme “smart city” at the up­com­ing Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show (CES), the largest con­sumer elec­tron­ics trade show in the U.S., the city gov­ern­ment said Tues­day.

The Seoul Met­ro­pol­i­tan Gov­ern­ment will show­case its smart city tech­nol­ogy at Eureka Park, the star­tups arena of the Las Vegas con­ven­tion, from Jan. 7 to 10 next year.

Twenty-four tech star­tups in Seoul that fit the “Smart City & Smart Life” cat­e­gory will be cho­sen to par­tic­i­pate, with the city cov­er­ing much of their flight and ex­hi­bi­tion costs.

Cov­er­ing about 223 square me­ters, the Seoul pav­il­ion will also fea­ture Mayor Park Won-soon’s spe­cial smart board wall show­ing mil­lions of data col­lected around the city, in­clud­ing real-time CCTV footage of key traf­fic points and the most up-to-date tabs on food prices at gro­cery stores.

The pav­il­ion will be run in part­ner­ship with the Seoul Dig­i­tal Foun­da­tion and Seoul Busi­ness Agency.

“Seoul is ranked a world-class smart city thanks to the tech­nol­ogy and en­trepreneur­ship of in­no­va­tive star­tups based in Seoul,” Lee Won­mok, a city of­fi­cial head­ing smart city poli­cies, said in a state­ment.
