Following highly successful editions in Dubai, UAE, and Lisbon, Portugal, WOW Summit Hong Kong will establish itself as a flagship full-scale Web3 event in the APAC region in the year 2023. On March 29 and 30, around 5000 participants are expected to attend the event, which will take place at the prestigious AsiaWorld-Expo.
WOW Hong Kong will be co-hosted by some of the most well-known players in the blockchain ecosystem, including Uvecon.VC and MaGESpire. This event is being supported by government organizations such as Invest Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Tourism Board. According to Tatler Asia, Bowie Lau, the founder of MaGESpire, is one of the most well-known names in the Web3 industry in Hong Kong.
Bowie Lau, the founder of MaGESpire, said: “Thrilled and excited to return to the Web3 arena as a co-host of the blockbuster WOW Summit 2023, Hong Kong edition, one of the biggest and the brightest Web3 conferences in the APAC region, filled with thought leaders, trailblazers, and industry experts looking to shape the future of the industry.”
Harnessing New Web3 Business Opportunities
At WOW HK, the most influential people in the sector, including creators, developers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, funds, corporates, and industry leaders, will assemble to discuss the current trends in the space, network, and capitalize on new business prospects. The Web3 industry is flourishing in Hong Kong, which is ideal for conferences of its kind.
Bowie Lau further added: “Hong Kong, as the home ground to the world’s largest Web3 Gaming and Metaverse players, has always treaded with cautious optimism when it comes to crypto and Web3 and largely avoided the fallout of the Crypto Winter. But with an increasingly supportive regulatory stance and the open embrace of Metaverse, Hong Kong is positioned well to re-claim its leadership in the Web3 space.”
Since the city was allowed to reopen following Covid, WOW Summit Hong Kong has become the first event of its kind to take place on a larger scale. The discussions and fireside chats will cover the Web2-to-Web3 transition and the development of the internet, blockchain adoption, real assets tokenization, NFT and Metaverse use cases, CBDC, and other topics.
Distinguished speakers, including Yat Siu (Co-Founder & Executive Chairman at Animoca Brands), Benedicte N. Nolens (Head of BIS Innovation Hub HK Centre), Dave Chapman (Executive Director at BC Group), Angelina A. Kwan (CEO at Stratford Finance Limited), Duncan Wong (CEO at CryptoBLK), and Gillian Howard (Founder & Fair Director at Digital Art Fair), will break the discussions on stage.
A Hub of Global Change-Makers Building a New World
At the NFT and Digital Art Exhibition, works from very skilled artists who hail from countries all over the world will be exhibited. In addition, businesses developing their products in the Web3 ecosystem will have the opportunity to compete in a startup competition, make presentations to prominent funds, venture capitalists, and corporate partners, and receive funding for the further development of their projects. The event counts Brinc and OLN Law as one of the event’s most important partners.
Ivan V. Ivanov, CEO of WOW Summit, Partner of UVECON.VC, said: “The transition from Web2 to Web3, from centralized services to decentralized, is happening now despite the global recession, crypto winter, and uncertainty. Technological progress is unstoppable. Data privacy, end-user data ownership, access to financial products for the unbanked, digital property rights, new tools for customer loyalty management, DAO, and Metaverse development – these are the trends of the third decade of the 21st century.”
The weekend of March 29-30 is an ideal time for WOW Hong Kong because it will take place between two other well-attended events, namely Art Basel HK and the Hong Kong Sevens, at a time when the city will be buzzing with activity and be looking for other entertainment events. During the week, in addition to the main conference, there will be many side events that provide opportunities for less formal networking.
Ivan V. Ivanov further added: “Hong Kong has reopened its borders and introduced a new vision on Web3 and virtual assets, welcoming tech companies from all over the world. I’m excited to bring WOW Summit here to boost the transition to Web3; WOW things will happen here.”
Details regarding these activities can be found on the website for the WOW Summit. WOW Summit HK is going to be an outstanding event that will have hundreds of the most successful Web3 startups, partners, publishing houses, venture capitalists, lecturers, and influencers. For those who are shaping the future of the world, attending the Web3 event in 2023 is an ideal option.
