One of the most successful crypto events in 2023, the Hong Kong Web3 Festival, will return this year from April 6 to 9.
Just like its first edition in 2023, the event will once again take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (HKCEC), a globally renowned venue in the heart of Asia’s World City.
In recent years, Hong Kong has actively pursued Web3 engagement, exemplified by ambitious initiatives such as articulating its virtual assets policy, establishing a Web3 task force, and more.
For its upcoming event this year, the Web3 Festival 2024 has forged a strategic alliance with the nation’s trade statutory body, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). Furthermore, the event has revealed the multi-stage Web3 investment firm DWF Labs as its title sponsor.
With the event taking place in the innovation-rich city of Hong Kong, the Web3 Festival 2024 converges East and West ideologies. Furthermore, the event has renewed its commitment to Web3, finance, art and fashion, as it helps redefine the Web3 landscape with over 9,000㎡ at the iconic HKCEC.
The festival creates an ideal networking, sharing, and learning environment, bringing together professionals, investors, and enthusiasts. The event goes beyond a simple conference, as it unites industry leaders and game-changers to collaborate and illuminate the influence of Web3 and blockchain on the internet’s future.
