At the same time, we sincerely expect that ChinaJoy 2023 will recover and surpass the scale before the epidemic, and see a boisterous crowd again.


In 2023, we see the big bang of artificial intelligence (AI) - AIGC, ChatGPT, Midjourney and other AI application scenarios and products are emerging. As AI technology is rapidly iterating, the organizers of ChinaJoy respond quickly, and make comprehensive deployment in the exhibition, conference, activities, publicity and many other aspects to showcase and discuss the innovations empowering the game and digital entertainment industry with AI technology, boost the comprehensive development of AI technology and application in the field of digital entertainment, cultivate new business modes, and welcome the coming of AI era together.


Fully implementing onsite security measures, and developing mechanisms and measures for improvement


Safety and security have always been the top priority in the preparation of ChinaJoy Expo. The organizing committee and government leaders at all levels attach great importance to it, and take a series of measures, including establishing a leading organization for the safety and security of the expo, putting forward guidelines for safety and security work, formulating work plans and assigning responsibilities to every post and everyone.


First, the content to be displayed should be positive and healthy. As one of the most well-known and influential annual events in the global digital entertainment field, ChinaJoy attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors. It is a social responsibility that must be practiced to present healthy and high-quality content to the audience. Therefore, a strict content review mechanism has been established for ChinaJoy 2023. The exhibits that have not been reviewed or have not passed the review are not allowed to be displayed and promoted onsite at the ChinaJoy. 


Secondly, the site management should be safe and orderly. The organizer has formulated a detailed solution to ensure exhibition safety, including entrance and exit management and crowd control, onsite medical rescue, fire safety supervision, booth construction safety management, onsite showgirl and actor management, onsite costume management, etc. The Exhibition Onsite Safety Supervision Group and Exhibition Onsite Safety Team were established to jointly promote the safety and security management to ensure the safe and orderly progress of the exhibition.


Thirdly, the style of publicity is upward. ChinaJoy 2023 advocates positive principle for media publicity and reporting of the exhibition, conferences, and concurrent activities. The medias are expected to actively cooperate with the reproduction of the important speeches of leaders from the competent departments and industry associations, deeply explore and fully introduce the highlights of ChinaJoy 2023.
