The World of Web3 (WOW) Summit Hong Kong 2023, held on March 29 and 30, was the first and largest Web3-focused event in the Asia-Pacific region after the pandemic. The event was powered by GuyWay and MarketMakingPro, hosted by Uvecon.VC, co-hosted by MaGESpire, and supported by the Hong Kong government. Over 4,000 attendees from across the globe arrived, along with 50 sponsors, 40 renowned publishing houses, 200 exhibitors, startups and venture capitalists, and 150 speakers, including top-tier speakers like Yat Siu, co-founder and executive chairman at Animoca Brands. The event had two stages packed with valuable talks, fireside chats, keynotes, and panel discussions on the Web2-to-Web3 transition, blockchain adoption, CBDCs, tangible assets tokenization, NFT, and metaverse use cases, regulations, and more.
Apart from the startup competition, the WOW Summit joined forces with another large-scale, famous event in Hong Kong, Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens. WOW attendees selected Booster Pool as the startup competition winner on the second day. As the General Media Partner of WOW Summit Hong Kong, Cointelegraph awarded the winner with PR and marketing services worth $35,000. The next exclusive and luxurious WOW Summit edition will welcome Web3 industry leaders in Dubai on Oct. 8 and 9 and will be packed with networking, business, valuable connections, and fun. WOW Summit is also launching NFTs and tokens. There are currently only 200 exclusive NFTs available, and WOW NFT holders will receive 10% rewards in WOW loyalty tokens linked to the actual ticket sales turnover of WOW events.
