Wild Digital, a tech conference powered by Catcha Group, will be hosting its eighth flagship conference in-person – after running virtually for two years – this September 6-7 at the Le Meridien Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Themed Unlocking Asia’s Evolving Tech Future, Wild Digital’s Southeast Asia conference will see a gathering of over 1,000 attendees and more than 70 speakers, featuring the region’s leading tech players, disruptors and pundits among them.
Canvassing across 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, and Golden Gate Ventures.
Speakers such as Jungle Ventures’ managing partner David Gowdey and Vertex Ventures SEA’s general partner Carmen Yuen will also be sharing their insights and observations of the upcoming trends and evolutions via the various rapid-fire sessions and fireside chats.
Malaysia’s prime minister Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob and minister of finance Zafrul bin Tengku Abdul Aziz are also scheduled to speak.
“2022 promises to be a year of extraordinary growth for the South-east 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,” said Patrick Grove, co-founder and group CEO of Catcha Group.
