Web Summit moves RISE conference online for 2021


October 15, 2020 - under embargo until 9 AM (UTC +8)

RISE conference, “Asia’s largest tech gathering” according to CNBC, will now go ahead online on March 25, 2021, given the uncertainty facing a large number of public events around the world during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 

Web Summit’s Asian event will host 5,000 founders, partners and speakers on its proprietary online conference platform that is regarded as “the stunning future of tech conferences”, according to Digital Trends

Event organisers also announced last week that its flagship event, Web Summit, will take place fully online in December and will host 100,000 people. This comes after the success of its first online event, Collision from Home, which welcomed 32,000+ people online from over 140 countries last June. 

For us, moving our events online is easy. It’s always been the case that we are maybe the only large event company that builds our own software. For years now a team of 50+ engineers, product managers and designers have built software to make our events a lot more productive.” - said Paddy Cosgrave, co-founder and CEO of RISE conference and Web Summit. 

“Everything that we’re building towards is all about enabling people to, over the three days, network with each other – making it very efficient and helping the right people” - he continued. 

Tickets for RISE 2021 are now on sale, as are partner and startup packages.
