Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) 2020

The gathering of the smartest minds in Innovation

MTE2020 - Launching of Social Innovation Asia Awards

The annual Malaysia Technology Expo returns on the 20-22 February 2020 and invites international inventors, start-ups, tech companies, designers and entrepreneurs to showcase, exhibit, and promote their latest inventions, ideas, prototypes, products and designs to investors, manufacturers, distributors and marketers, to propel their ideas from a concept to reality, and from lab to market.

MTE’s objective is to establish a scientific and progressive society, a society that is innovative and forward-looking, and one that is not only a consumer of technology but also a contributor to the scientific and technological civilisation of the future. As businesses are becoming borderless, MTE also seeks to encourage local inventors, start-ups, tech companies, designers and entrepreneurs to enhance their capabilities with international collaboration.

MTE is firmly established on the international invention and innovation shows circuit, for all those who thrive on the business of inventions and innovations, a proven platform for innovators and breakthrough technologies for the past 18 years.

One of the advantages of showcasing at MTE is that their ideas receive industry wide recognition at the event’s prestigious awards programme. Covering all age groups and categories of inventions, the innovation awards at MTE will be judged by an independent jury comprising of scientists and industry representatives, paving the way to more market opportunities. Previous winners at MTE have gone on to win international invention events, successfully signed contracts with manufacturers, distributors and business partners.


MTE 2019 attracted over 427 exhibits from 18 countries with 566 award entries. The event also welcomed 9,270 local and international visitors from 34 countries. Looking forward, MTE 2020 promises to be an even more exciting event for the science and technology community, and is expected to draw 10,000 visitors and 600 exhibits.
