In its first year, Rise already has a massive programme spanning 4 stages sign up now and be part of it

Rise is more than 6 months away but already the pulse is racing as we slowly uncover each new piece of our first event in Asia.

We’ve revealed our first speakers, and our first batch of tickets will get snapped up all over the world this week.

Now it’s time to talk about the format of the event, and unveil our first 4 stages: Centre Stage, Builders Stage, Enterprise Stage and Machine Stage.

All bring an exciting edge to the different industries they relate to, with our Centre Stage bringing together some of the most recognisable names in tech for some fascinating discussion, interviews and talks. Here’s a little bit more on each one:
