What's On

Registration Closed

Following a well-received visit organised earlier in June, the Chamber is pleased to organise another tour to the Sino Innovation Lab (Sino Inno Lab) on 16 October 2019.

Sino Inno Lab was established by the Sino Group, one of Hong Kong's leading developers in late-October 2018 to provide a sandbox platform to support start-ups, inventors and technology companies in Hong Kong and from overseas to develop PropTech solutions. Sino Inno Lab enables the testing of new ideas in a real-life environment without impacting actual operations and engages internal and external stakeholders to facilitate idea generation, proof-of-concept development and collaboration.

The exhibition demonstrates how smart, connected and innovative technology can quickly bring benefits to everyday life. This tour will be a fantastic opportunity for members to learn about the impressive array of innovative applications and experience how these smart products can improve home and workplace.

The tour will be hosted by Ir Andrew Young, Associate Director (Innovation) for Sino Group.

The tentative programme is as follows:
15:45 Coach pick up at Admiralty
16:25 Arrive at Sino Inno Lab
16:30 Showcase tour
17:15 Discussion and networking
17:45 End of programme and depart for Admiralty

Register early to avoid disappointment!
