Connected Cities Conference

The Growth Company are delighted to be one of the supporting organisations of the Connected Cities Conference at Hong Kong on 9 September 2022. The event is part of the StartmeupHK Festival 2022 (from 5-10 September 2022), highlighting the burgeoning relationship between Manchester and Hong Kong, and display the latest innovations for the next generation of urban living.


A key theme for this year’s conference will be Hong Kong’s ongoing development in creating both a “connected city” and a globally leading “smart ESG city” capable of attracting new talent such as wealth creators, innovators, and investors.

The conference will consist of various keynotes and forums featuring global and regional speakers from academia, business, and leading entrepreneurs to share examples and best practices in implementing connected cities and technologies from around the world, with the aim to make cities liveable, workable, and sustainable.

There will also be a Startup Village in the conference with over 100 exhibition booths and a networking lounge for scheduled demos and interactive activities aimed at increasing engagement among startups, corporates and investors. The Growth Company will join the Startup Village together with our partners in the Global Scale-up programme, highlighting their innovations and services for the future of cities life.
