China’s booming economy and expansive marketplace attracts global tech talent, entrepreneurs and innovators to its largest city. Shanghai, the home of CES Asia, is a leading innovation hub, both regionally and globally. CES Asia 2017 was filled with energy, excitement and innovation. Those in attendance learned about the newest technology trends from major tech players. Interactive exhibits provided hands-on experiences with the latest innovations in self-driving vehicles, drones, wearables and more. Companies gained insight into consumer market trends from CTA senior executives and market-leading industry experts at a packed conference program emphasizing the important role of disruptive technology in bettering the world. With record breaking numbers of industry professionals, top media and potential investors in attendance, startups and global brands utilized CES Asia to launch products and expand their brands.

“CES Asia is the region’s premier technology event and we were delighted to have the opportunity to showcase JD.com’s latest developments,” said Chen Zhang, CTO of JD.com and a keynote speaker at the event. “With AI enhanced e-commerce and other technologies creating greater efficiencies and better user experiences to revolutionize retail, JD.com utilized CES Asia to demonstrate our latest technology innovations and share our insights.”

By bringing industry heavyweights, influential media and technology experts to Shanghai, CES Asia strengthens the city’s global tech standing and influence. The event lends credibility to Shanghai’s rapidly growing technology community, creating a robust atmosphere for meaningful and strategic partnerships to form across the industry.

“This event is very very successful and has a wide effect for popularity among all the people here in China, in Asia, so we will continue to be here year after year,” said Aaron Chow, head of marketing (Hong Kong & China), Monster Inc.
