RISE Conference, one of the most popular startup and technology conferences in the world, has just been postponed for another year.
The conference, which was initially scheduled to take place on 14th - 17th March 2022, has now been moved to 21st - 23rd March, 2023.
As of now, the conference will still be held in Hong Kong.
News of the change was announced by the company earlier today via email.
Uncertainties brought about by the pandemic have continued and after much consideration we have regretfully decided to postpone RISE to March 21 - 23, 2023.
We will focus on bringing a global audience to worldwide events in 2023 and look forward to welcoming a global audience to Hong Kong soon.
This move is not surprising considering Hong Kong's borders will reportedly remain shut until the middle of next year.
RISE has had a tumultuous past 2 years, largely due to the Hong Kong protests that took place in 2019, followed by the global pandemic that rages on until today.
