Wild Digital: Indonesia 2021

Wild Digital Indonesia: September

Wild Digital Indonesia 2021 will be held in conjunction with Wild Digital Southeast Asia 2021, putting the focus on accelerated growth as seen from the region and its largest market.

Wild Digital, the region’s premier tech conference powered by Catcha Group, is bringing back Wild Digital Indonesia 2021 for its 4th edition.

Part of their conference series, the event will be fully virtual on 8-9 September 2021, and will be expecting 60+ speakers, 20+ live sessions and 800+ attendees.

In recent years, Southeast Asia has shifted into innovation high gear to overtake global competitors in the region, thus reshaping and changing the rules of the game. Ahead of the pack is Indonesia, whose growing pool of unicorns and “soonicorns” tech startups are making waves as regional giants, primed to play in the global arena.

Wild Digital’s theme for the year is Indonesia: Fueling Southeast Asia, the Next Digital Powerhouse – and aims to highlight this leading market that is poised to pave way for Southeast Asia’s post-pandemic boom.

“The past year and a half have been quite a ride, but we’ve also witnessed a tech boom in Southeast Asia during these extraordinary times! Amazing things are happening in this part of the world, and we’ve had great entrepreneurs and companies making the international headlines.

This is why we’re eager to bring back Wild Digital Indonesia for the 2021 edition. As SEA’s largest market economy, Indonesia has had a hand in producing some of the region’s most well-known unicorns and rising tech stars,”

Patrick Grove, Co-Founder and Group CEO of Catcha Group

The conference

While the pandemic continues to put a hold on plans for Wild Digital’s annual on-ground conference, it has not stopped them in curating the best online conference experience for attendees. Doing so has given Wild Digital even more room to push boundaries, and the runaway success of their last few virtual events speak for themselves – Wild Digital Southeast Asia 2020 had 129 speakers and 1900+ attendees over the 4-day conference!
