About RISE Conference
Brought to Asia by the organizers of Websummit, RISE currently holds the title of the largest and most well-attended startup conference in Southeast Asia. Hosted annually in Hong Kong & targeting 15,000 attendees this year, it also features a Night Summit with “legendary networking” on the streets of Hong Kong after dark. It is also well-known for its Alpha packages targeting startups and some great discounts for women attendees to boost women in tech.
Note from the organizers: As of this year (2017) RISE is no longer a singular conference but rather home to many independent conferences. Each with its own stage, schedule, exhibition area, workshops and networking events. For example, digital marketers attended PandaConf as their conference within RISE and SaaS will also be at SaaS Monster conference within RISE. These conferences alone constitute the largest global gathering in the industries. Attendees gained access to many conferences hosted within RISE, and were able to learn about every major industry that involves technology. (Credit: RISE Conference)
