En­trepreneurs and tech-heads, mark your cal­en­dars: the Rise con­fer­ence is back in town. Span­ning three full days from July 11-13, the event will light a fire un­der Hong Kong’s en­tre­pre­neur­ial scene as more than 15,000 peo­ple de­scend on the Convention and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre to share ideas, vi­sions and ven­tures. Ex­pect at­ten­dees to span in­dus­try lead­ers, startup pi­o­neers, in­vestors and me­dia from more than 85 coun­tries. The am­bi­tious pro­gramme for this year’s edition—the third in Hong Kong— fea­tures 12 stand­alone con­fer­ences, a startup show­case, late night par­ties and cu­rated pan­els held by world-class pi­o­neer­ing young minds—in­clud­ing a few fa­mil­iar Tatler faces. “This con­fer­ence is an in­cred­i­ble op­por­tu­nity for Hong Kong’s ris­ing tech and busi­ness tal­ent to learn from, and be in­spired by, some of the best in the world,” says Gary Liu, CEO of the South China Morn­ing Post, Gen T-lis­ter and RISE 2017 speaker. “I for one will be tak­ing lots of notes!” risec­onf.com
