WHO WE ARE
THE GRID is a networking hub founded in 2017 by Messe Düsseldorf in China, which aims at connecting the digital platform sphere - all those internet companies, providers of disruptive technologies and start-ups - with the physical exhibitions. THE GRID links digital innovators with their future markets helping them grow from zero to hero, and vice versa, connects representatives of the classical industries with those disruptors, makers and innovators. Together with its ecosystem partners such as co-working operators, incubators, accelerators and innovation boosters, THE GRID organizes lounges, meet-ups, pitches and conferences where both the digital sphere and representatives of industry segments can mingle, network and share expertise to unleash the power of both worlds for a prosperous future of China.
