The South China Morning Post was born at the dawn of the 20th century. A bold new publication which launched in 1903, it promised its readers “something better and more interesting” than all that had gone before. For 120 years, we have witnessed, recorded and explained the dramatic developments that have shaped Hong Kong, China and the world, from typhoons to taipans, the plague to the pandemic, and the motorcar to the metaverse.
As the SCMP looks to our past heritage and forward to Hong Kong’s future horizons, we want to capture these stories in a special event series - SCMP120 Conversations. Consisting of close gatherings between our readers, journalists, and Hong Kong trendsetters, these conversations will cover past and future subjects that matter to our city.
Founded in 1903, the South China Morning Post is a leading news media company that has reported on China and Asia for more than a century with global impact. Headquartered in Hong Kong, it is the city’s newspaper of record with teams across Asia and the United States, working together to connect with news consumers around the world. We are committed to informing and inspiring through journalism of the highest standards. Our vision is to “Elevate Thought”, and our mission is to “Lead the global conversation about China”.
The South China Morning Post events team hosts a number of in-person, virtual, and hybrid events across Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, and the United States. SCMP’s calendar of events complements the news cycle by creating a forum to discuss, explore, debate and unpack major issues and urgent priorities that provide informed viewpoints and perspectives to our global readers.
SCMP Events deliver a premium user experience for speakers, sponsors, and delegates, powered by a diverse and stellar line-up thought-leaders, renowned experts, captains of industries and policy makers. Our events convene high-valued participants from more than 60 countries each year including top-level government officials, business leaders, and influential opinion leaders to the stage to have a comprehensive discourse on the pressing political, diplomatic, sustainability, business, and economic issues impacting us today.
