The Guiyang Big Data Expo is China’s main national level event for the big data industry, attracting 20,000 visitors from over 60 countries. Large company delegations from the UK attended the Expo in both 2016 and 2017, and CBBC/DIT is planning to organise a delegation for this year’s event in May.

But this is just the start…
Inavya Ventures will continue to leverage coverage like this, with the hope to strengthen and accelerate any future partnerships within the region
