KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Wild Digital, Southeast Asia’s leading tech conference powered by Catcha Group, will be hosting its eighth flagship conference. After running virtually for the last two years, the two-day exclusive tech conference is back in-person this 6 and 7 September at Le Meridien Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Malaysia’s Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob and Minister of Finance YB Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul bin Tengku Abdul Aziz are Guests of Honour at Wild Digital Southeast Asia Conference 2022.
Themed Unlocking Asia’s Evolving Tech Future, Wild Digital’s Southeast Asia conference will see a gathering of over 1,000+ attendees and 70+ speakers, featuring the region’s leading tech players, disruptors and pundits among them.
As news of massive tech layoffs made its rounds worldwide in recent months, it raises the question: "How will Southeast Asia’s tech darlings and its thriving tech landscape, which saw record-breaking growth over the last two years, brace for the tougher times ahead?" Canvassing across the hottest tech verticals such as Ecommerce, Agritech, Digital Banking, Insurtech, Fintech, Healthtech, as well as the latest Internet evolution—Web3, and the Metaverse, attendees can expect to hear firsthand from global and regional heavyweights such as Nium, Snowflake, Boost, Meta, Gobi Partners, Golden Gate Ventures, and the likes. The speakers will be sharing their insights and observations of the upcoming trends and evolutions as the ecosystem brace for another season of change via the various rapid-fire sessions and fireside chats.
"2022 promises to be a year of extraordinary growth for the Southeast Asian tech industry. Restrictions on physical interactions during the COVID-19 pandemic have seen growing demands by consumers for new digital and online-based solutions. Amid the crisis, we have seen the acceleration of ecommerce, fintech and logistics industries. New technologies such as Web3 and Metaverse are also being adopted by Southeast Asian tech entities.
When trouble rises, entrepreneurs strive to find ways to overcome the obstacles. Although the reason for the recession is completely different now, it’s a good opportunity to create something that solves problems generated by the shift to the online world. We believe that Wild Digital is a platform that offers valuable insights into the future of Southeast Asia’s tech industry," said Patrick Grove, Co-Founder and Group CEO of Catcha Group.
