RISE 2019 will take place in Hong Kong at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 8-11.

The full schedule is available online; alternatively, you can view it through the app once it is released.

From July 8 – July 11, the main conference will kick off at about 9am and will close at approximately 5pm. The first day, July 8, will consist of pre-registration during the day followed by opening night festivities from around 8pm.
