IE Alumni Weekend Hong Kong: Inspire, Empower and Co-create! 

IE proudly presents the Alumni Weekend Hong Kong organized with great care to bring together our alumni from the Asia Pacific region, and indeed worldwide, to reconnect, reminisce, learn, network and of course socialize in an exclusive setting! We have planned an exciting lineup of events over the course of 2 and a half days with a mix of settings which includes Hong Kong’s highly exclusive Jockey Club, 5-star hotels, and an edgy location for the Venture Day component of the weekend. Sign-up and join us in vibrant Hong Kong to celebrate the IE Experience and Inspire, Empower and Co-create with fellow alumni and industry experts!  

We encourage art lovers to also stay on after the Alumni Weekend to take in everything Art Basel-Hong Kong has to offer from 15-17 March.  Get more information on this key event here.


Preliminary Agenda (subject to changes) 

Friday, 13 March: Welcome Reception and Accreditations

Saturday, 14 March: Knowledge Day and Career Development

Sunday, 15 March: Venture Day Hong Kong


DAY 1: March 13th, Welcome Reception and Accreditation

Arrive early in Hong Kong to see local sites and even do some shopping, before joining the rest of alumni at an exclusive location to obtain your accreditations and do some low-intensity networking (get to meet other alumni delegates before we formally get into the Knowledge Day and Venture Day activities).  Light refreshments will be served, and alumni are encouraged to venture out together to one of the city’s many local dining spots for a late dinner.

DAY 2: March 14th, Knowledge Day and Career Development & Alumni Social

The conference will feature an insightful lineup of speakers, who are both successful professionals and alumni – and we’ve even invited some top speakers who aren’t alumni but that have useful knowledge to share with you. While we’ve already confirmed a top alumni-speaker from Rocket Internet, we’ve got lots more to come, so stay tuned. 

Given the importance we place on giving our alumni special access to exclusive locations, and thanks to one of our illustrious alumni, we’ve been able to secure the Hong Kong Jockey Club for the second day of the Alumni Weekend in Hong Kong.  Only events sponsored by members of the Club can happen here, and given the core role the Jockey Club has played in Hong Kong society life for more than 100 years, we truly do have access to a privileged location.

It’s important to unwind after a big day of learning, and so in the evening of the 14th of March we’ll be hosting the Alumni Social – a mixer/cocktail event at Hong Kong’s OZONE Bar, a sky bar and lounge located atop the International Commerce Centre and is claimed to be the highest bar in the world. During the evening cocktail we’ll award a prize for The Most Active Alumni Chapter, as a showing of our appreciation of those alumni who do the most to keep the IE spirit alive after graduation. After the IE Alumni-only cocktail, Ozone will be hosting a special internationally renowned DJ party, and IE alumni are invited to stay on for the rest of the evening, or head back into Central for a big night out (well, not too big, Sunday we’ve got Venture Day!) 

Evening cocktail will take place in Ozone at the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong  


DAY 3: Venture Day Hong Kong

Take part in the IE entrepreneurship ecosystem. Network with alumni, investors, local entrepreneurs and enterprises to discover and debate new business ideas, identify investment opportunities and celebrate innovation.  For this edition we’ve confirmed a location that will allow for a roll-your-sleeves-up and make entrepreneurship happen/almost clandestine adventure in entrepreneurship, deep within the heart of the city.  They’re will be expert insight, a pitch competition and we’ll announce the winning city for Asia Pacific’s next Alumni Weekend.  The Official Closing ceremonies will also take place here, so all participating alumni should attend both days of the Alumni Weekend Hong Kong!!
