SmartCon 2024

Chainlink’s flagship event SmartCon brings together digital asset leaders, DeFi pioneers, and onchain builders in Hong Kong from October 30-31, 2024, fostering collaboration to reinvent the future of global markets.

It marks the success of the joint effort between the Hong Kong Tourism Board and InvestHK in making Hong Kong the first city in Asia for the global expansion of this conference that converges the worlds of blockchain and finance.

This significant event reinforces Hong Kong’s position not only as the World's meeting place but also as the leading I&T Hub in Asia, aligning with the development focus of the national 14th Five-year Plan.

With a history of fostering and encouraging innovation in DeFi, NFTs, and onchain finance with multiple blockchain-based pilots, Hong Kong is a melting pot of different lifestyles, traditions, and ideas-the perfect place to embrace emerging mega-trends in these fields as the global financial and Web3 innovation hub. In aligning with the Mega Events Economy directive, the success of SmartCon 2024 will enrich the city’s portfolio of mega business events and bring in a substantial number of non-Hong Kong visitors, among them will be international and Mainland start-ups and  high-caliber I&T professionals who may ultimately establish their businesses in Hong Kong and contribute to its growth.

Winning SmartCon 2024 is another feather in the cap for Hong Kong as a leading international financial and innovation & technology centre. Located right in the heart of Asia, Hong Kong not only gives global investors, leaders, policymakers and startups of the blockchain and Web3 communities a strategic base to capture business opportunities in the region. The city can also showcase through this great platform what it has to offer as a top destination for diverse experiences.

We can't wait to witness the convergence of onchain pioneers in this remarkable city.
