Reimagine Asia: The New Digital Frontier

17-19 NOVEMBER 2017

Dear Alumni,

If you are looking for a great way to engage with high profile leaders in Asia and reconnect with your alumni friends, there is no better way than attending the upcoming INSEAD Forum in Hong Kong.

Our world is changing rapidly, and even more so in Asia. In this forum, our goal is to provide you with a fresh perspective and hopefully be able to inspire you to reimagine the potentials in Asia. You will have the best opportunity to interact with influential thinkers and gain critical insights.

In addition to the forum, join us for the gala party and cultural tours that allows you to experience Hong Kong like never before. Designed with you and your family in mind, the weekend will be packed with excitement and fun-filled activities.

We look forward to welcoming you in Hong Kong and relive the INSEAD experience together.

Best regards,


Derek Chang, MBA‘10J
President, INSEAD Alumni Association HK

Perched on the edge of the stunning Telegraph Bay, Le Méridien Cyberport offers the perfect location for productivity and relaxation. Within minutes of Hong Kong’s city centre, the hotel represents a slightly isolated retreat for business travellers who want to get away from it all while still remaining within reach of the fast-paced world of commerce. The only hotel on the southern part of the island, we offer views of both parkland greenery and the sea's sparkling turquoise waters.
