If you haven’t heard, RISE is leaving Hong Kong (!) and not only will there be a new host city there will now be TWO conferences in Asia: Kuala Lumpur will be the new host city for RISE, and Tokyo, Japan will be the host city for a new edition of Web Summit.
Lisbon and Toronto will continue on as well so that is FOUR conferences powered by Web Summit starting in March 2022.
We got some media coverage at Techcrunch
and while it’s cool to be quoted in CNN
they took a very different approach to the news.
More updates on this as it happens but this is what 2021 and 2022 will look like for the conferences:
April 21-23, 2021: Collision from Home
November 1-4, 2021 Web Summit Lisbon - hybrid event: 50/50 in-person and online.
March 2022: RISE in Kuala Lumpur
June 2022: Collision in Toronto
September 2022: Web Summit Tokyo
November 2022: Web Summit Lisbon
