AGENDA

11th November – 12th November

Shenzhen Bay Venture Plaza, Shenzhen Software Industrial Base

2019 THEME

Technology today is limitless in both its capabilities and geographical bounds. 5G, blockchain, artificial intelligence, and big data. These technologies are no longer abstract concepts, but are tangible tools and products that have the potential to transform our lives. Technology not only has the ability to make large impacts on an individual level, but also on a collective, national level. As technological developments in China garner increased attention abroad and more Chinese companies expand into foreign markets, technology is playing an increasingly larger role in fostering international interactions in our globalized world.At TechCrunch Shenzhen 2019, we will bring together the top entrepreneurs and companies of each industry and focus on trending topics including 5G, artificial intelligence, the international expansion of companies, and the ecosystem of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (simply known as the “Greater Bay Area”).
