MACAU/HONG KONG SAR, Media OutReach, November 27, 2023: Today, Fortune announced the lineup of speakers for Brainstorm Design 2023, a unique international conference dedicated to exploring the intersection of business and commercial design. The event will be held in Macau, China, for the very first time on December 6 at MGM COTAI.

This year’s theme, “Empathy in the Age of AI,” explores the ways AI shapes commercial design, architecture, and art, as well as the design challenges related to climate change, sustainability, diversity, and more. The conference will also focus on the philosophies and working methods great designers bring to their work and examine how established designers can collaborate with global firms.

In this groundbreaking collaboration with FORTUNE, MGM is set to pioneer the introduction of the Fortune Brainstorm Design conference to Macau. This initiative echoes MGM’s pledge to curate world-renowned and high-quality meetings, incentives, and conferences that gather great minds from all around the world and help enhance Macau as a global exchange hub for commercial innovation through the lens of design.
