Update: 2017-08-28     Source: newsgd.com

On the last day of June, 2017, Time Inc. and the city of Guangzhou formally announced that the first-ever Fortune Brainstorm TECH International will be held in Guangzhou from December 5 to 6, 2017. The event will be located and timed to coincide with the 2017 Fortune Global Forum, which will attract the CEOs of the world’s biggest companies and top leaders, from China and beyond. Guangzhou will remain the permanent venue for the Fortune Brainstorm TECH International together with the China Award for Innovation.

As noted at Fortune’s official website, “Guangzhou will be a spectacular setting for Brainstorm TECH International: A place of international commerce for many centuries, it is China’s southern gateway to the world and an emerging center of tech innovation.”

Furthermore, the city will also host the 2018 World Route Development Conference, the 2019 World Ports Conference and the 2020 Metropolis World Congress.

As one of China’s important cities along the ancient Maritime Silk Road, Guangzhou has thrived with a vibrant international flavor and spirit of openness while trading with peoples of different places. And in 1957, the twice annual China Import and Export Commodity Fair — also known as the Canton Fair — was launched in Guangzhou.

It has become China's No. 1 exhibition and has closely associated Guangzhou with high-end international conferences, exhibitions and large-scale events. Especially after the convening of the 16th Asian Games in 2010, Guangzhou has attracted a large number of high-end international conferences, with a frequency of two large events monthly from 2015 to 2016.


Guangzhou also produces a clustering effect as the host city of important international events by cooperating with world-class international exchange platforms like Fortune Global Forum, World Economic Forum, Boao Forum for Asia and United Cities and Local Governments.

Besides setting a stage for international conferences, Guangzhou also develops its own brand of international conference. The Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation is the highest honor for urban innovation in the world. In 2016, the third Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation attracted 301 projects from 171 cities in 59 countries and regions to showcase their experiences in urban innovation.

All these have helped Guangzhou cultivate a brand and an exchange center of international conferences of high standards, wide range and diversified formats. And with the brand effects, Guangzhou has developed itself into a magnet city, attracting high-end resources, talents, technologies and capital as well as creating a new driving force for its economic development.

With its selection as the host city of the 2017 Fortune Global Forum, Guangzhou is confident in demonstrating to the outside world its status as an international exchange center as well as a hub of international aviation, shipping and technological innovation.

In addition, what's behind the Guangzhou conference also represents the ever-growing global role of the Chinese economy. Under the current stage of the transformation of the global economy, China actively participates in international governance and provides Chinese solutions to the world’s economic development.

To build Guangzhou into an international exchange center not only represents the expanding global role of the Chinese economy, but also offers an important means for the city to participate in global collaborative governance and tell the world Guangzhou's globalization story. Guangzhou will take itself as an example to give appropriate interpretations of Chinese solutions with concrete and richer content.
