Web Summit, the company behind RISE, announced that the tech event will be returning to Hong Kong on 14th to 17th March 2022 as an in-person event at the AsiaWorld-Expo.
RISE was launched in Hong Kong in 2015, where it has been hosted five times to gather global tech founders, startups, investors and members of the media to the city.
Past speakers have included Alibaba co-founder and executive vice chairman Joseph Tsai, Stripe co-founder and president John Collison, Magic Leap CEO Peggy Johnson, and Sequoia Capital founding managing partner Neil Shen.
“We are extremely grateful for the support the city of Hong Kong has given RISE over the last five years, and we couldn’t be more excited to return in-person in 2022.
We’ve seen the region’s tech and startup economy grow from strength to strength since we launched RISE in 2015.”
said Paddy Cosgrave, Co-founder and CEO of RISE conference and Web Summit.
“I am sure the staging of RISE will showcase Hong Kong’s capacity to deliver amid the challenges posed by the epidemic, and connect our tech start-up ecosystem with that of the globe.
I look forward to welcoming more world class business events to Hong Kong, injecting new vigour into our economy.”
said Edward Yau, Hong Kong’s Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development.
