BEYOND Expo 2021 made its debut at the Venetian Macao Convention and Exhibition Centre with a lineup of honorable keynote speakers, select tech giants, and insightful industry forums. As such, many are already looking forward to BEYOND Expo 2022.

Mark your calendar to attend BEYOND Expo 2022 on September 21 – 24, 2022 at the Venetian Macao Convention and Exhibition Centre. Adhering to the mission of BEYOND Expo, BEYOND Expo 2022 will continue to surpass conventional tech expo and challenge the future of businesses with a focus on technology innovation and its impact on our future society.

To dive deeper into each vertical industry and establish a sustainable industry-focused tech community and ecosystems in the region, BEYOND Expo is launching four new sub-categories: BEYOND Healthcare, BEYOND Sustainability, BEYOND Consumer Tech, and M=?.

1. BEYOND Healthcare

The COVID-19 has given rise to the awareness of the life science industry. As a result, many countries have identified life sciences as one of their main strategic development plans, and governments are providing incentives to support growth. According to the CBRE’s Asia Pacific Major Report: A New Era of Life Sciences Growth published in June 2021, the Asia Pacific is accounted for 28% of the global revenue of listed life sciences companies in 2020. It is also worth mentioning that the number of life science research journals in the Asia Pacific increased by more than 40% between 2016 – 2020.

BEYOND Healthcare will spotlight the technological innovation in the life sciences industry such as healthcare services, smart medicine, innovative drugs, medical supplies, biotechnology, segmented surgical robots, and pharmaceutical research and facilities. BEYOND Expo 2021 has partnered with the Chinese Medical Association, China Taiping, Bank of China Macau, Livzon Pharma, Fosun Pharma, BGI, West China Hospital and presented many forums in the fields of medical technology, medicine, biomedical technology, and industry networking sessions among top leaders to provide feasible solutions for future sustainable growth. We look forward to working with more companies in the life sciences industry in the coming months.

2. BEYOND Sustainability

It is undeniable that our society is now facing the most critical ecological and environmental issues in the history of humankind. BEYOND Sustainability is a platform created for governmental organizations, academic institutions, and civil societies to come together and discuss immediate and feasible actions to solve global environmental challenges.

On the last day of the BEYOND Expo 2021, we co-organized the BEYOND SDG Summit with the United Nations to promote the importance of implementing sustainable development goals to benefit society. Apart from the SDG Summit, many themed forums also included sustainable development growth on the top of their agenda. They are the Green Smart Logistics Forum by GLP, the Green Economy Forum by Plug & Play China, and the Agriculture and Food Tech forum by Bits x Bites. Nevertheless, Some leading tech companies such as China State Construction International, Nam Kwong Group, Huawei, Alibaba, Tencent, Sinopec, and Everbright Holdings also put sustainability development as their theme at their respective booths.

In 2022, BEYOND Sustainability will focus more on smart green cities, smart manufacturing, environmental protection technology, new materials, new energy, food technology, and agricultural technology. We will also encourage discussion on the implementation and development of the global green tech innovation industry.

3. BEYOND Consumer Tech

The electronics industry is one of the core production industries of the national economy in China. According to the 2021 Consumer Electronics Industry Development Research Report released in Oct 2021, the electronics manufacturing industry has achieved a revenue of 12,099.21 billion RMB from its core business, an increase of 8.3% year-on-year.

Since the invention of smartphones, consumers tech has become an indispensable part of our daily lives. Today, with the rapid development of new innovative technologies combined with high-tech network facilities, hardware, and software, consumers tech is entering a new phase of game-changing transformation. Some of the consumer-related tech forums discussed at BEYOND Expo 2021 include the smart living forum by ICBC, robotics forums by Microsoft for Startups, AI innovation forum by SenseTime, and smart mobility forum. Among the participating consumer tech companies are Huawei, China Telecom, Nvidia, Hikvision, XGIMI, XPENG HT Aero, Ehang, and WeRide.

Consumer Tech will continue to be one of the sub-categories at BEYOND Expo 2022. Apart from the usual smart living technology, BEYOND Consumer Tech will include sports tech, prop tech, smart mobility, and future interactive computer software systems.

4. M=?

There will be a mysterious sub-category at BEYOND Expo 2022 at the event. Until then, we look forward to welcoming all of you to BEYOND Expo 2022. See you in Macau in September 2022!
