Global Partnerships flourish
Barcelona was chosen as this year’s partner city for the IDT Expo under the theme “Barcelona Inspires Design”. Along with highlighting leading brands and companies from the city, the event will also feature seminars on topics ranging from innovation in eco-design and e-commerce to designing cities of the future. Innovation and design experts from around the globe will be exchanging ideas with Hong Kong business leaders at the various seminars during the event.
The IDT Expo will encourage global ties with other cities and help businesses explore opportunities in innovation and applied technology by bringing together more than 430 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions around the globe. This is a new record for the event!
Zoning in on innovation
The Expo will have two thematic halls, the Trade Hall and the Inspiration Hall. In the Trade Hall, The Creative and Tech Start-up Zone will have close to 100 start-ups from around the world. On top of that, the Global Invention Zone will also have about 100 inventors from around the world presenting their latest creations and helping to create business opportunities in IP.
The Inspiration Hall will be open to the public free of charge, and anyone interested can pre-register online for free admission. It will showcase projects by top Hong Kong and international designers, to promote the exchange of creative ideas while sparking interest in innovative design and technologies among the general public.
