The fifth edition of ORIGIN Conference is set to go virtual on Nov. 18, 2020. It is organized by TechNode Global, a pan-Asia tech platform offering premium tech news, cross-border businesses, events, and tailor-made marketing solutions for tech industry players. The ORIGIN Conference is an international event covering the latest developments in the Asia tech and startup scene where international industry leaders and technology innovators from across the region gather to share trends, experiences, and leadership lessons.
With the theme “Startup Asia: Celebrating the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship,” this year’s ORIGIN will be held in conjunction with TECHFEST Live x ROAD-TO-WCIT Malaysia 2020, a three-day digital hybrid festival featuring curated live events and live-broadcast conversations about technology’s promise to do good.
The inaugural ORIGIN Innovation Awards winners will be announced during the conference, recognizing outstanding startups, corporates, ecosystem enablers and movers and shakers in Asia.
In the conference section, the ORIGIN Conference will see regional luminaries and forerunners from more than ten countries take to the stage, including:
The virtual conference consists of a series of panel sessions, intimate fireside chats and more which further explore topics ranging from livestream commerce to digital health, from venture investment to female entrepreneurship, focusing on the recent developments and predictions on the growth trajectories.
Dr. Gang Lu, founder and CEO of TechNode Global, said, "Now is not the time to slow down, and we are thankful to be able to host our flagship conference despite the challenging macro environment. It is important for the greater Asian community to adopt an attitude of collaboration rather than competition when dealing with the wider international community, which is why this conference is timely and essential in the current climate. We are bringing this online for the first time and we believe the partnership with TechFest Live allows both organizations to reach a wider group of audiences. We look forward to gathering like-minded outstanding startups, venture capitalists and industry experts to share their valuable insights and predictions.”
Ngai Yuen Low, CEO of WCIT Malaysia and TECHFEST Live, said "TECHFEST is very honored to forge forward with TechNode Global, tapping on their expertise in identifying the conversations we must have. The above and beyond, however, is in making these conversations inclusive and accessible to as many as possible. Our call is to reframe the promises of the digital age. We need to hold every innovation accountable for societal good and this can only happen when informed decisions can be easily made because everyone is involved and is able to participate."
