A Successful Foray into the Asian Alternative Data Market

On November 6th, 2018, we hosted our first Alternative Data Discovery Day event in Hong Kong. We successfully facilitated over 1,000 one-on-one meetings between data providers and data buyers and hosted a variety of panel discussions around the industry's current hottest topics. Below, you'll find a recap of the event as well as its top highlights.

From the CEO

Our foray into the Asian market couldn't have gone better. We're proud to have brought together such an amazing group of over 400 companies to this one-of-a-kind global alternative data event. Attendees heard from the best-of-the-best from panels discussing hot topics around the satellite industry, finding Signal in alternative data, web scraping for investment ideas, and other investment strategies. I learned so much from this Discovery Day and I hope everyone who attended found it fun, insightful, and beneficial. Now, onward to Discovery Day Miami on January 29th!
