We’ve all heard it before: this is the Asian Century. We’ve seen the numbers and read the charts—Asia is set to become the new driver of the global economy.
From 2020, Asian economies will be larger than the rest of the world combined for the first time since the 19th century. Will this switch of economic power see similar inflections in culture, philosophy and geo-politics? Only time will tell.
One thing is for sure: there’s never been a more critical time to uncover, explore and overcome the unique challenges holding us back, nor the opportunities that will propel us towards new heights.
The mission of the inaugural Gen.T Asia Summit is to meaningfully contribute to that most important of conversations.
To do this, Generation T will bring together a community of influential leaders on April 3-4, 2020 to grapple with the boldest questions of our time. From fearless young disruptors to established industry titans, changemakers and opinion-leaders across industries will convene in Hong Kong to explore the power of their ideas and what happens when we work together.
THE MISSION: BREAKING BARRIERS
To move forward, barriers must be broken—the mission of the Gen.T Asia Summit. The opportunity for positive impact is too great for innovators to be inhibited by traditional barriers—generation, gender, culture and geography. By connecting minds with a purpose, the Gen.T Asia Summit will catalyse innovation in the region and inspire Asia’s next generation of leaders.
This is not your average conference. With the ever increasing importance of work-life synergy, the Gen.T Asia Summit will offer experiences that enable personal enrichment and the chance to establish meaningful connections, as well as intellectually stimulating talks.
Over the course of two days at the Rosewood Hong Kong, attendees will enjoy a plethora of unique experiences, including art and musical performances, wellness activities and gourmet food.
That being said, all eyes will be on the main stage, where a diverse line-up of innovators and experts from all over the world will come together to inspire new approaches to business and life.
Confirmed speakers include Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales; Google X co-founder Tom Chi; Juan Pablo Escobar, son of the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar; author and North Korean defector Hyeonseo Lee, and many more. For a full line-up, visit the Gen.T Asia Summit website, and keep an eye out for more speaker announcements over the coming weeks.
Tickets to the Gen.T Asia Summit are limited to Generation T honourees and their guests, or available by application. If you'd like to attend, apply and tell us what you think you can contribute to the Gen.T community.
Expect to be taken out of your comfort zone. Expect to build meaningful, lasting connections with some of Asia’s most influential. Expect to be inspired by an extraordinary community brought together by a common desire to change themselves, their businesses, society and the world.
