China, the epicenter of futuristic innovation, is our destination again. What has changed since Covid? How is AI shaping their new priorities?

Join us as we delve into the dynamic southern region, including Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen. Our journey will focus on four pivotal trends: Smart Mobility and Cities, Manufacturing and Logistics, Cutting-edge Technology (with a spotlight on AI), and Finance.

What previous attendees said about our innovation tours

For me, the real power of a nexxworks tour is the unique group of people you meet and travel with.

This experience showed how short-term planning and long term planning are both needed. The China visits were truly inspiring in how they execute on that.
