Shenzhen is often dubbed as the Silicon Valley of hardware:  it’s the innovation hub for all things hardware. That’s exactly where we’re taking this year’s TechCrunch Summit.

We’ve already told you about the Hackathon, but did you know that we’re also going to have a dedicated space for startups to show off their stuff?

Get your voice heard by an amazing professional crowd: In the past six sessions of TechCrunch International Summit, over 1,000 companies showed off their products to an amazing group of 30,000 participants. It’s a good chance for your product launch.

Spot international tech trends: As an international event, TechCrunch Summit is the place where techies and entrepreneurs from the global mingle together for the exchange of latest trends in different startup ecosystems. In the past, we introduced country pavilions for international startups from U.S. Japan, Korea, Israel, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This year, we have confirmed the participation of startups from Thailand and Hong Kong, not to mention the companies who hail from China.

Media coverage: Each of the past events have invited over 120 media from home and abroad. In addition to local mainstream news portals, the events are also covered by media from Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

VC-meetup: For those who are ready to put their ideas to the ultimate test, we have a dedicated schedule for you. At VC Meetup, you can pitch face-to-face to senior investors from some of the most forward-thinking firms like IDG, Sequoia China, GGV Capital, and Zhenfund.

You can join us at the Startup Alley as a VIP exhibitor (display logos at event official website as partners, select VIP booths, get VIP pass, media coverage, and promotions), a joint exhibitor (institutions or countries that can demo their products at a joint exhibition area), or a startup.

Each year is bigger than the last, and the same will be true in June for Shenzhen with 180 spots up for grabs. We invite innovative companies in AI, e-commerce, fintech, smart hardware, gaming, VR/AR transportation, mobile healthcare, O2O, and enterprise services to join our startup exhibition area. We would like to provide a platform for more startups to present themselves. 

The summit runs June 17-20 at I-Factory, Nanshan District, Shenzhen. Tickets are available at an early-bird discount until May 1st.
