Technology innovation and entrepreneurship have become the main theme in the business world over the last decade. For that reason, TechCrunch Innovation Summit, the most international tech event in China, is receiving attention from more and more global companies.
This year, TechCrunch Shenzhen 2017, the latest session of our annual TechCrunch events, has received sponsorship from several renowned companies including Turkish Airlines.
This partnership marks Turkish Airline’s first-ever sponsorship of a technology innovation event, as they shift their focus to other sectors outside sports and sporting events.
With the boom of global innovation power and cross-regional innovation activities, startups’ demands for seeking global cooperation partners and resources is also on the rise. The international travel plans brought by these emerging companies form a significant growth point for international airlines like Turkish Airlines.
TechCrunch China and its Chinese operator TechNode brought TechCrunch Innovation Summit to China four years ago. In that time, we have seen 6 sessions in Beijing and Shanghai with the participation of entrepreneurs and investors from around the world, such as Europe, North America, Southeast: Asia, Japan and South Korea.
Founded in 1933, Turkish Airlines is a national flag carrier airline of Turkey, a 4-star member of Star Alliance. It operates scheduled services to 298 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. With an operational fleet of 337 airplanes, including cargo and guest aircraft, Turkish Airlines has been a rated as “Europe’s Best Airline” for six consecutive years as of 2016 by Skytrax.
