Are you driving the digital transformation in the new era of growth? Are you striving to solve global challenges with tech innovations? Do you have a product that speaks to a worldwide audience and changes the way people work, live, and play?

 

Here is the chance to bring your innovative products and services to the next level with the BEYOND Innovation Awards 2022. We look for tech entrepreneurs with impact-driven innovations that address pressing global issues with scalable solutions.

 

The second annual event of the BEYOND Expo will be held from September 21 – 24, 2022, at the Venetian Macao Convention and Exhibition Center. We expect 4,000 tech startups and companies and 20,000 tech professionals from more than 120 countries and regions to join us. On top of that, we also expect 600 exhibitors to showcase their products and services at the 80,000 square meters exhibition hall as well as the BEYOND Metaexpo, an infinite extension of BEYOND Expo 2022 in the virtual world. This will allow exhibitors to connect with global potential partners, buyers, and visitors online in creative ways.

 

This year, we have launched three sub-brands to focus on three tech industries: BEYOND Healthcare, BEYOND Sustainability, and BEYOND Consumer Tech. From on-site exhibitions to industrial forums, we hope to encourage our attendees across the industries, online and offline, to collaborate and exchange ideas.
