Hong Kong FinTech Week 2019
Hong Kong FinTech Week 2019 has successfully grown into a truly global FinTech event in four short years, with the attendance increasing exponentially from 300 delegates for the inaugural edition in 2015 to more than 12,000 from over 60 economies this year.
Held from 4-8 November, the five packed days combined lab visits, side events, showpiece at AsiaWorld-Expo and a day trip to Shenzhen. The world’s first cross-border event of this nature, FinTech Week is a testimony to the importance of Hong Kong's relationship with the rest of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
“There’s no such event like Hong Kong Fintech Week anywhere in the world. Hong Kong is a great place for innovation, financial technology, startups and banks.”
CEO and founder of FINNOVASIA
“We see Hong Kong as a critical platform for our FinTech companies; it is a gateway to Asia and China specifically. You have the heartbeat of an international financial city, but also have beautiful mountains and beaches a stone’s throw away.”
Head of Financial Services & FinTech, Asia-Pacific from Enterprise Ireland
“Hong Kong embodies innovation and partnerships to me. The city has put together a fantastic FinTech week, where we have a large number of players from all over Asia assembled in one place to do business and make the right connections."
