From industry, representatives include Alibaba Global Business Group president Angel Zhao, AWS general counsel Bob Kimball, Twitter VP of Asia-Pacific Maya Hari and EY global AI leader Nigal Buffy.

The event is expected to attract a significant number of attendees – last year's summit attracted over 2,000.
