Web Summit revealed today that it will restore RISE, among Asia’s biggest tech conferences, in March 2022, moving it to Kuala Lumpur after 5 years in Hong Kong. It also revealed a new occasion, called Web Top Tokyo, that will launch in 2022, too.
The flagship Web Summit occasion is currently occurring as an online conference.
In November 2019, Web Summit revealed it was holding off RISE to 2021 in the middle of the pro-democracy presentations in Hong Kong. However the 2021 occasion won’t be held, with INCREASE resuming with its 2022 Kuala Lumpur occasion rather. Naturally, this year has actually seen a series of other significant event cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Web Summit is planning for the 2022 edition of RISE to be in-person, and has actually agreed to a three-year collaboration with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to host the event.
In a press declaration, Web Summit and RISE co-founder and chief executive officer Paddy Cosgrave said, “This is not a farewell to Hong Kong. We intend to go back to the city in the future with a brand new occasion.”
Web Top Tokyo, which will take place in September 2022, as part of its worldwide growth, which will also consist of an occasion in Brazil Rio de Janeiro or Porto Alegre are presently being thought about as the location.
Web Top has currently announced plans to hold its flagship event as an in-person conference in November 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal.
