This year, Gen.T unveiled an inaugural pan-Asian list celebrating close to 500 influencers, innovators and disruptive talents who are shaping Asia’s future. The list, which will be revealed annually, was compiled with the help of a distinguished panel of industry experts and business leaders dubbed the “Tatler Tribe”. In addition to the exclusive ceremony in Hong Kong, Gen.T celebrated top-performing entrepreneurs, professionals and creatives at events in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia.
