After a number of successful events in China since 2013, TechCrunch and TechNode are getting ready to bring the TechCrunch Conference to the great city of Shanghai again. This time we’ll be meeting at the West Bund Art Center at the Huangpu River bank to bring together the best startups and brightest minds in China’s tech industry, so mark your calendar and join us on June 8-9.
Last August, we made it even bigger in Beijing, luring 5,000+ attendees and 200 startups into our Startup Alley. Over 100 ventures and 150 media outlets joined us in Beijing for an amazing event. We are confident that TechCrunch events are the most eye-catching, international-friendly styled conference for startups and entrepreneurs in China.
Coming back to Shanghai this June, TechCrunch and TechNode will bring even better guest speakers as well as the promising startups and leading ventures to the show. Unlike previous events, we will collaborate with partners to co-host parallel sessions for product launches, themed workshops, hot topics forums and more. Our feature event “Meet with Investors” will also land in Shanghai, giving passionate entrepreneurs opportunities for a face-to-face meet with dozens of legendary investors. In addition, we’ve locked in a series of startup gatherings over the week so we can totally immerse ourselves in Shanghai’s passionate entrepreneurial spirit!
From ‘The Red Web’ in 2013 to ‘The Red Hardware’ in 2014, TechCrunch Shanghai will focus on ‘Internet of Things’ this year. We see the interconnection of all things as inevitable in our future, which is why we are focussing on a diversity of fields within the up-and-coming market, such as smart wearables, consumer transport, peer-to-peer technology, intelligent homes and more.
