For the first time ever, our TCO Regional Events will encompass and have attendees from all the countries located in the Eastern Asia region of the world.

Our world has definitely been turned upside down the last few weeks and months with the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping our globe. In keeping your health and safety as the most important thing in mind, we have decided that the Eastern Asia Regionals will be held virtually this year and you will have an opportunity to compete and interact with attendees virtually.

We cherish these events as a way to get to know so many of you and build stronger relationships with the folks we work with at Topcoder every day and so we are excited to plan an engaging and interactive experience to all of you.

At this moment, the event is tentatively scheduled to take place virtually on Sept 6, 2020. Invitations to the finalists with all the details will be rolled out very soon.

How to Qualify

These exclusive events are invite-only meaning you have to win a ticket to attend. Members had to compete in Topcoder Challenges launched during TCO20 Stage 2 (January 2020 to March 2020) to earn TCO20 Points. Members are now invited to the event according to their placement on the regional leaderboard.


Did you miss out on the TCO20 Regional Qualification?

You can still qualify by competing in SRM 787 which is scheduled to be held on Sunday, June 21, 12:00 UTC-4.

Invitations will be rolled out to the best performers in both the divisions. The number of invitations will be proportionate to the participation in that particular division.
