The 4th Technology for Change Asia

The Economist Impact has picked Hong Kong as the strategic location to stage its flagship annual event, Technology for Change Asia, for three years. The first edition held in Hong Kong has concluded on a high note. 

Being one of the A-list conventions supported by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and the government, Technology for Change Asia focuses on exploring the latest innovations in artificial intelligence, Web3, DeFi and crypto, and the role of the Greater Bay Area (GBA) in applying technology for impact.  

The 4th edition of the event, held at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong on 27-28 February 2024, brought together over 450 government officials, technology chiefs, innovators, investors, scientists and senior business representatives. Keynote speakers included Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia, and Michio Kaku, a renowned physicist and science writer.  

Robust discussions were mixed with networking, business and enjoyment, highlighting Hong Kong's position as a hub for technology and innovation. Ahead of their busy schedules, the HKTB invited Wales, Kaku and other summit guests to cruise on the iconic Aqua Luna, taking in the city's renowned harbour views at night.

Hong Kong is a world-class city to embrace technological changes. The Economist Impact's 4th annual Technology for Change Asia has hosted in Hong Kong, reinforcing Hong Kong as an international hub for innovation and technology.

The connectivity of Hong Kong with its convenient traffic network makes the city a great leisure and business travel destination in Asia. Hong Kong is one of the most important cities in the world and it’s open, easily accessible and very central to Asia. We hosted our annual meeting, the Wikimania conference, here in Hong Kong almost 10 years ago, and I believe it's time for us to return. It's a great place to conduct business and meet people.”
Jimmy Wales
Wikipedia founder
I think Hong Kong is the ideal destination. It's ready for change, theological change, change for the better of society, and that's what artificial intelligence promises. I would invite my associates and friends to come to Hong Kong because it's a place with lots of activities, lots of young people and lots of ideas.
Michio Kaku
Globally renowned physicist and science writer
