With over 20 million people living in Chengdu in 2022 and strong economic growth of over 7.8% GPP p.a., Chengdu ranks among the top 3 cities to become the next Tier 1 city in China.

This June, we are going to dive into the Chinese Metaverse Startup Culture and have invited 3 amazing Founders on stage.
We start the fireside chats with Mr. Jon Anderson, Founder of MAXXDisplay who is years of experience in Media and VR Hardware. He built a VR Hardware business in China and exported thousands of accessories to customers in the USA, Europe, and Asia.
