AsiaD was the inaugural expansion of D: All Things Digital on a global stage. Just like its predecessor, AsiaD was hosted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, and featured senior editors Peter Kafka and Ina Fried, each bringing their own interview styles and their unyielding brand of live journalism, as they took a close look at the influencers and innovations shaping the digital revolution.
With Hong Kong as the backdrop, AsiaD united the leaders and visionaries from North America with the top players from across Asia — all while showcasing the uncompromising D formula of unscripted, unrehearsed interviews and dialogue. Where D has successfully united a community of North America’s most powerful and provocative figures in technology, AsiaD brought a global voice to the table from a region churning with explosive innovation.
From October 19-21 AsiaD took place at the Grand Hyatt, Hong Kong.
