CoinDesk, the most trusted media, events, indices, and data platform for the global crypto economy, announces a historic milestone as its flagship event, Consensus, expands to Hong Kong. Consensus serves as a platform for the most critical conversations among industry leaders around the globe on digital assets, blockchain, and Web3. Set to occur from February 19 to February 20, 2025, at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, this marks the first time Consensus will be held outside of the US in five years. Since its inception in 2015, Consensus has grown into the longest-running and most influential crypto & Web3 event globally, attracting over 15,000 attendees, 600 journalists, and 500 speakers at Consensus 2023. The event has been attended by notable figures, including Fortune 500 CEOs, lawmakers, and sports and entertainment stars from over 100 countries.

Foster Wright, CoinDesk President, said, “Asia¬†stands as a global powerhouse for Web3, boasting tens of millions of¬†crypto¬†users, blockchain developers, and governments at the forefront of regulatory innovation.¬†Hong Kong¬†has strategically positioned itself as a pivotal digital assets hub in this dynamic region. Consensus has consistently served as a global event, bringing together all facets of the¬†cryptocurrency, blockchain, and Web3 community. Consensus¬†Hong Kong¬†will continue this legacy, specifically emphasizing thought leadership to foster tangible business growth. Attendees can anticipate learning best practices from global experts and cultivating relationships that propel their businesses onto the international stage.”

Consensus¬†Hong Kong¬†will deliver a detailed picture of a new digital age in which tokenization and artificial intelligence increasingly shape our daily lives. Its rich program covers¬†cryptocurrencies, tokenization, and the latest fintech and blockchain innovations. It explores Web3’s influence on culture communities, grapples with the opportunities and challenges posed by new AI, data management, and privacy technologies, and addresses how governments are dealing with these sweeping changes.

Invest¬†Hong Kong¬†(InvestHK) welcomes and supports Consensus in picking¬†Hong Kong¬†to expand into¬†Asia.¬†King Leung, Head of Financial Services and FinTech of InvestHK said,¬†“Hong Kong¬†is on an exciting journey of Web3 evolution as we embrace frontier technologies such as real-world assets (RWA) tokenization from investment warrants to real estate to intellectual property to deliver new impact in financial services as well as other economic sectors. The arrival of Consensus is a testament to¬†Hong Kong’s¬†world-class aspiration and development in our Web3 sector, which continues to attract entrepreneurs, talent, and investment. This conference will offer a phenomenal platform to inspire innovation, attract tech leaders and builders, and most importantly, catalyze to elevate our capabilities as a leading international financial center to serve the broader real economy better.”

Mr¬†Kenneth Wong, General Manager, MICE and Cruise of the Hong Kong Tourism Board, said, “With our comprehensive bidding support, we are excited that Consensus makes¬†Hong Kong¬†its first destination to expand its global footprint beyond¬†North America. It is a vote of confidence that this flagship¬†crypto¬†and Web3 conference picks¬†Hong Kong¬†as the city provides a fertile ground for businesses and industries. The event will benefit infinitely from the city’s pulling power for investors, innovators, and speakers, which will also serve to drive economic returns and sector advancement. The city looks forward to giving participants enriched experiences and growing this event for long-term success.”
