The most prestigious digital conference in Southeast Asia, Wild Digital, is back and better than ever. With the Malaysian Prime Minister serving as the event’s master of ceremonies, they’ve upped the ante for their eighth comeback. The Malaysian Minister of Finance, who is the guest of honour, will join CEO of Catcha Group Patrick Grove for a unique Fireside Chat.
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. The two-day exclusive tech conference, which had previously only been available electronically, will once again take place in person on September 6th and 7th at the Le Meridien Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Recent months have seen widespread reporting of massive tech layoffs, which begs 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?”
Attendees may anticipate hearing personally from international and local powerhouses like Nium, Snowflake, Boost, Meta, Gobi Partners, Golden Gate Ventures, and others while learning about the trendiest IT verticals like Ecommerce, Agritech, Digital Banking, Insurtech, Fintech, and Healthtech.
In the numerous rapid-fire sessions and fireside chats, the speakers will be discussing their observations and insights into the next trends and evolutions as the ecosystem gets ready for another season of change.
“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,” remarked Patrick Grove, Catcha Group’s co-founder and group CEO.
