Casual Tech Meetup
Curate shared and transformative experiences for change makers to foster conversation around technology, design and innovation
The meetup we curate are means to foster conversation.
Casual Tech Meetup offers two event formats: Monthly Mixer and Round Table Discussion. Both aim to create a "casual" environment for exchanging and growing ideas through conversation. We are continually expanding Casual Tech Meetup to include various event formats and promote conversation between different people.
We host a monthly mixer in Hong Kong for individuals working or interested in technology.Typically, 15 to 25 people participate each month. Our goal is to bring together individuals from diverse backgrounds and foster conversation. You might begin by discussing your career, latest growth marketing tactics, UX design trend or productivity apps and the conversation will naturally flow into other interesting topics such as travel stories and personal side project. Additionally, the host will actively introduces new faces to everyone.We also hosted a monthly mixer in Singapore in April 2023.
Round Table Discussion
We host round table discussion for in-depth conversation on a specific topic.We expect 10 to 15 people to join the round table discussion. The first hour of the event will be similar to monthly mixer, where individuals from diverse backgrounds will be able to join conversations on various topics.The second half of the event will feature a round table discussion on a specific topic. A moderator and a subject matter expert will lead and faciliate the discussion. Inviting participants to share their point of view and experience for the topic.
