RISE Conference 2017

RISE, one of Asia’s biggest technology events, returned to Hong Kong from 11–13 July 2017. More than 15,000 attendees from over 100 countries gathered at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for the three-day event that saw a 45% increase in attendance over 2016. Since the first RISE conference, MEHK has worked closely with the event organiser to ensure smooth event-planning, with everything from venue and accommodation recommendations to arranging a dedicated immigration counter and lining up in-town experiences.

Lauded as the “new hot ticket on the tech conference scene” by Forbes, the event buzzed from morning till night. The Night Summit took delegates around town for some robust networking over cocktails, with the final shindig held at Lan Kwai Fong, the city’s famous party mecca.
