AOL's Tech properties, Engadget and TechCrunch, are headed offline and going global. We are excited to announce that Engadget Expand is going to New York City and TechCrunch Disrupt is heading overseas to Beijing, China, as we continue to bring engaging experiences both online and off.

Engadget Expand, which debuted this past March in San Francisco, is coming to New York City's Javits Center on November 9th and 10th. This event will bring together tech luminaries and Engadget editors for two days of exciting conversation, new inventors and gadget fans -- for the ultimate immersive technology experience.

TechCrunch is partnering with one of the top tech blogs and event groups in China, TechNode, and will launch the official Chinese-language version of TechCrunch later this year. The Chinese edition will carry translations of posts from the U.S. site.

TechCrunch Wraps Biggest Disrupt Show to Date

San Francisco's SOMA district – already buzzing with startups on any given day – became the undisputed center of the tech universe this week with TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012. The annual conference gives entrepreneurs a chance to launch their startups and network with investors while gathering luminaries across industries for engaging speaker sessions throughout the show.

And gather they did. From Newark mayor Cory Booker's thoughts about bringing more technology to government to Jack Dorsey's candid discussion about Square, Disrupt SF offered no shortage of thought-provoking sessions for the record 3,000+ attendees. Many of those attendees packed the house for TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington's signature hard-hitting questions in Mark Zuckerberg's first interview since Facebook's IPO.


The event culminated on Wednesday afternoon when a panel of expert judges, including Marissa Mayer, Michael Arrington and David Sacks, awarded the Startup Battlefield winner honors to YourMechanic – a website and app that lets users describe their car troubles, find a local mechanic and coordinate payment details. Beating out the 30 other startups competing in the Battlefield, YourMechanic took home the coveted Disrupt Cup and $50,000 in prize money and keeps good company with other Battlefield winners like Yammer and Dropbox.


The event offered plenty of action in the main hall as well, with more than 200 startups exhibiting over the course of the three days. And while Disrupt has always welcomed internationally based companies to the show floor, this year the team introduced the International Pavilions, a dedicated exhibition space for 125 companies from countries including Chile, Turkey, Korea, Israel, Argentina and Brazil to showcase innovation happening around the globe.
