The Fortune Global Tech Forum convened world leaders in the innovation economy space 29-30 November 2018, in Guangzhou, China.

First convened in 2017, this event taps into the strength of two ongoing Fortune powerhouse conferences: the Fortune Global Forum and our Brainstorm TECH conference, which for the past seventeen summers has brought together the smartest, most innovative people in tech, media, entertainment, and finance in Aspen, Colorado.

The Fortune Global Tech Forum explored the innovation revolution unfolding in China and the rest of the world. Our 2018 theme is “Innovation in the Age of AI.” In addition to providing insights into fast-moving trends, we were glad to introduce you to some of China’s most promising startups, through our second Annual Fortune China Innovation awards, a competition between high-potential start-up companies in a variety of fields, which culminated in the naming of the Fortune China Innovation Company of the year.
