The Hong Kong FinTech Week is an event focused on providing a platform for participants across the globe to share their innovations, organized by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and InvestHK.
Thiago Cruz Silveira, Principal Consultant of InvestHK in Brazil, has provided us with exciting comments and numbers concerning the event:
The latest results of HK Fintech Week and over 25 satellite events throughout the week are nothing but impressive.
– No. of attendees (physical + virtual): Over 20,000 from 87 economies (15,000 virtual in 2020)
– No. of views of our various live streaming content: Over 4 million (1.2 million in 2020)
– No. of media coverages: 870 (as of 7 November 2021)
Over 300 speakers, over 400 exhibitors, and over 39 delegations and representatives joined the main conference alone.
In addition, the Global Fast Track Programme, part of HK Fintech Week, proved very successful by recruiting over 400 Fintechs which were actively introduced to over 90 corporations and investors.
The weeklong event featured conferences with prominent speakers, the Global Fast Track program, exhibitions, a deal floor, networking events, demo shows, and more.
This year, the side events started on 1 November 2021, and the main event began on 3 November 2021 and ended on 5 November 2021.
This edition hosted many virtual sessions with online interactions, although the event’s focus was face-to-face activities, on panel discussions across five stages. As with other similar events, returning to the physical format was much anticipated, considering last year’s virtual-only events and webinars.
The Hong Kong FinTech Week is a great event that allows Brazilian FinTechs to connect with world-renowned investors, founders, Asia’s top executives, and other players in the FinTech ecosystem. As a result, you can be among the first to explore the opportunities to scale in China’s Silicon Valley – Greater Bay Area region with over $1.67 trillion GDP. It also offers dozens of FinTech masterclasses and workshops hosted by the world’s most innovative companies and technology providers in the industry.
