BEYOND Expo is going hybrid this year!

To accommodate our international audience abroad who couldn’t participate in person at the BEYOND Expo in Macao this December, we would like to announce our upcoming BEYOND Virtual, which will take place from November 9 to December 4 on the BEYOND Expo website and app.

The BEYOND Virtual Opening, which will be held on November 9, 15:00 (GMT+8), will present opening remarks from world-class entrepreneurs, scientists, global investors, and tech experts including Dr. Song Xiao, Global Executive Vice President and President and CEO of Siemens Greater China; Jessica Tan, Co-CEO and Group Executive of Ping An Group; Mr. Siddharth Chatterjee, UN Resident Coordinator in China; Scott Beaumont, President at Google Asia Pacific; David Liao, Co-Chief Executive, Asia-Pacific at HSBC; Dr. William A. Haseltine, Founder, Chairman and President of ACCESS Health International, and Raymond Teh, Vice President at NVIDIA, APAC. Based on the theme of BEYOND Expo – “What’s Next?”, they will be talking about the trends of technology, investments, and the impact of each industry in shaping the world we live in today and the future.

We are also super excited to announce that our special guest, Terry Gou, Founder of Foxconn, will deliver a message on technology development in the APAC region.

Apart from the opening speeches, there will be an opening panel on “The Global Investment Summit: The Next Blue Ocean” with Amir Gal-Or, Founder and Managing Partner of Infinity Group; Christine Tsai, CEO and Founding Partner of 500 Global and Hans Tung, Managing Partner at GGV Capital.
