JULY 8-11, 2019

You weren’t thinking of sleeping, were you?


The giants of the web assemble in Hong Kong by night.

It’s not every day that international tech convenes in one place, so let’s make the most of our time in Hong Kong. Each night our local hosts will introduce you to a different zone in the city. They’ll make sure that the drinks and conversation are flowing, but from there, where the night goes is up to you.


What to expect

Hong Kong at night is a spectacle. With its neon lights and iconic skyline The Pearl of the Orient comes to life after dark. From street parties to rooftop bars, our local hosts will show you every side of the city.
Much like RISE, Hong Kong celebrates its multicultural influences, mixing east and west into a unique flavour. You can call it networking or unwinding, just don’t miss out on Night Summit at RISE.


Monday, July 9 – Pub Summit and Night Summit in SoHo

Much like its namesakes in New York and London, Hong Kong’s SoHo comes into its own after sundown. Starting at 6.30pm on Monday, we’ll be taking to this little corner of Central for Pub Summit, sponsored by Monaco.
Not registered yet? You can sign up for Pub Summit here, but do it before July 4. After a few drinks and a little tour of the area, it’s straight onto Night Summit from 8pm. Here you have a choice to continue onto either Staunton’s Wine Bar,  Brooklyn Bar or SoHo Corner. When Night Summit ends is up to you.

Tuesday, July 10 – Wyndham Street: Bungalow and Solas

On Tuesday, Wyndham Street will be playing host to our spirited RISE attendees. Here you’ll find us in Solas with a cocktail in hand; or in Bungalow, a self-styled “supper club” which juggles being both a chic French restaurant and a nightclub. Tuesday’s Night Summit is sponsored by Cathay Pacific Airways, and our first 100 guests will get a free drink. Bring your business cards to be in with a chance to win flights to Cathay’s newest European destination.

Wednesday, July 11 – High Street

Located in Sai Ying Pun, our destination on Wednesday is High Street. Known for its shopping and food scene, High Street also boasts craft beer bars and ping pong gintonerías. We’ll be kicking things off in High Street Grill and Cali-Mex Bar, and finishing up at 11.30pm.

Thursday, July 12 – Happy hour at Jinjuu

Wrap up the week with a final farewell at Jinjuu, a trendy, moodily lit Korean bar and restaurant in Lan Kwai Fong. It’s a good place to grab a drink and reflect on the talks and conversations from the week. For those who still have some fuel in the tank, it’s an ideal way to sign off from RISE.
