WOW Summit 2023

Subsequent to the success in Dubai, Hong Kong was picked as the strategic location for the global niche Web3 event WOW (World of Web3) Summit in 2023 to set a foothold in Asia Pacific, underscoring Hong Kong’s strong government support of the tech industry in areas like Web3 and the city’s unique position as the gateway to mainland China. 

The event drew 5,000-plus visitors, 150-plus speakers and 100-plus exhibitors from across 30-plus countries to gather at AsiaWorld-Expo on 29-30 March 2023. 

The event brought together industry leaders, government officials, funds and venture capitalists, NFT and digital artists, entrepreneurs and multinational corporates for important discussions, networking, business and fun.

Delegates enjoyed a packed programme of enterprise implementation case studies and solutions, innovative and creative Web3 projects, a startup competition to showcase new outstanding startups in the industry, and a fantastic art show featuring gifted NFT artists. The event was also enriched with various side events including after-parties, dinner, closing party and various networking opportunities in between for delegates to connect with the like-minded.

As a global series of niche Web3 events gathering the best in the industry to “build the new world together and learn from each other”, WOW Summit was the first large-scale Web3 event hosted in Hong Kong, reinforcing Hong Kong as an international hub for innovation and technology.

Hong Kong is our top choice to establish our footprint in Asia Pacific and it is one of the best places for the Web3 industry. Thanks to the tremendous support from the Hong Kong government and the city's vibrant ecosystem, we were able to attract global attendees, top level speakers from the industry and great sponsors! We are going to make this an annual event, and there will be many more to come.

Hong Kong is fabulous as the world's meeting place. The ecosystem here is vibrant, attracting many investors, new venture capital businesses, and startups to establish a footprint here. The Hong Kong government’s supportive measures on IoT, Web3 and digital asset space also shows the city’s determination to emerge into a leading city for Web3.

Hong Kong has always been a social hub for everyone, not just for finance, but also creative, technology and cultural sectors, connecting entrepreneurs, startup founders, builders, artists and more with one another. The Sandbox was started in Hong Kong in 2018 and it’s one of the most active places for the platform. With the latest developments in Web3 and crypto , Hong Kong is definitely a place where entrepreneurs and businesses can thrive in this new digital economy.

Speaker of WOW Summit 2023
Now that Hong Kong has reopened, it creates more opportunities in the Greater Bay Area and all over the world, from investment to technology conferences. Hong Kong is also an east-meets-west centre for international cultural exchange. Apart from opportunities in tech, Hong Kong has a lot to offer, including the new Palace Museum, M+, and all the events year-round!
