From the people who bring you the annual mega tech event Web Summit, RISE is billed as the biggest tech and startup event in Asia.

After an attempt to run the event in Malaysia, which was foiled by COVID-19, RISE is back in Hong Kong but at a new venue—Asia World Expo as opposed to the more central HKCEC where it has been held in previous years.

Organisers have been a little coy in announcing precise dates, but given the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the fact that travel to Hong Kong is still estremely restricted, that’s not surprising.

For a guide on getting the best out of RISE, see our article written after the 2019 event.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
