Back offline, visit Macao this May · TechNode
As one of Asia’s largest and most influential international technology expositions, BEYOND Expo has drawn widespread attention from the global technology innovation industry. Founded in 2020, it has been held twice before with great success, bringing together 800+ exhibitors, 55,000+ visitors, 500+ business leaders, and world-class speakers to participate in 150+ industry panels at online and offline summits.
Technology has long been ubiquitous in our lives, revolutionizing traditional businesses and influencing every aspect of our daily lives. The global economy in 2023 and the post-pandemic era faces enormous challenges as businesses transition from reality to virtual reality. As a Chinese proverb says, there is no construction without destruction. The purpose of “Technology” is being redefined, and so is its value. Therefore, “Technology Redefined” will be the theme of BEYOND 2023, which will be hosted in Macao from May 10 to 13. Our goal is to introduce and discuss the latest innovative technologies in various industries and re-evaluate their economic value and social impact in this new era.
With the relaxation of strict Covid controls, BEYOND Expo 2023 is set to reach a new high in terms of scale, attendee influence, diversity of industries, companies, number of exhibitors and overseas visitors. The expo will be held at the Macao Convention and Exhibition Center, which is spread across approximately 100,000 square meters and can accommodate more than 1,000 exhibitors. We expect more Fortune 500 companies, large cross-border enterprises, tech unicorns, and startups to participate in this year’s event. Industry forums and networking sessions will be held concurrently. We look forward to connecting attendees from all technological backgrounds with in-depth interactions to promote the global tech scene in the APAC region.
Comprehensive integration of cutting-edge technologies and industries with a focus on BEYOND sub-brands
BEYOND Expo 2023 will continue to focus on its three sub-brands: BEYOND Sustainability, BEYOND Healthcare, and BEYOND ConsumerTech. Through exhibitions and industry summits, the platform will facilitate the exchange of ideas to promote comprehensive industrial modernization, development and transformation, for better global technological innovation. BEYOND Sustainability focuses on technological innovation and the application of environmentally sustainable technologies by fostering collaboration among individuals, companies, and governments worldwide, and stimulating their interest in sustainable development.
BEYOND Healthcare puts cutting-edge technologies, products and solutions in the life sciences industry at the center by creating a platform that integrates companies and connects upstream, downstream, investment and academic exchanges.
BEYOND ConsumerTech brings together the latest technologies and products in the consumer technology industry, ranging from foundational technologies such as AI, smart manufacturing, and semiconductor chips to industrial applications for individuals, home and travel, creating a world-leading consumer technology expo in Asia — the largest consumer market and supply chain hub in the world.
Global exchanges across three tech verticals
In BEYOND Metaverse, a unique virtual online event previously held for BEYOND Expo 2022, we created a visual feast of outstanding technological innovations and striking exhibition booths.
In the past two BEYOND Expos, Alibaba Group, Deloitte, Huawei, Nam Kwong (Group), SIMENS, ICBC (Macau), China State Construction International Holdings Limited (CSCI), and Bank of China Macau Branch participated in the BEYOND Sustainability exhibition to propose more low-carbon solutions for green development. Edwards Lifesciences, Fosun Pharma, BGI, Merck, Concord Medical Services, Abbott, and China Taiping attended the BEYOND Healthcare exhibition to share their latest research findings in the life sciences sector and connect the upstream, midstream, and downstream industries to discuss people’s health and well-being. BYD, Insta 360, Nreal, OPPO, Pico, Macau Pass, Ant Bank, and SenseTime participated in the BEYOND ConsumerTech exhibition to promote the development of the consumer technology industry, discuss future trends and introduce new technologies for the transformation of the industry.

At the industry summits, an important part of BEYOND Expo, global experts, scholars, and business leaders will discuss the industry’s current and future situation.

The BEYOND Sustainability Summit will focus on green cities and infrastructure, alternative energy solutions, green transportation, food and agriculture, and green logistics. The BEYOND Healthcare Summit will share innovative insights and visions with global attendees. Tentative topics include innovative medicine and biotechnology, big data medical care, AI pharmaceuticals, cutting-edge medical equipment, future of medical research, innovative medical diagnostics, genetic testing, and anesthesia.

As the impact of technology on society and human development has always been its key focus, BEYOND 2023 will also feature three innovation awards for its sub-brands: BEYOND Healthcare Innovation Award, BEYOND Sustainability Innovation Award, and BEYOND ConsumerTech Innovation Award along with the BEYOND Impact Awards.
