Technology Forum - Smartify the City with 5G

Join us to connect and co-create! The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, the Hong Kong Productivity Council, the Cyberport and the Hong Kong Science and the Technology Parks Corporation jointly organise a series of technology forums for industry players to share their innovative information technology (IT) solutions and success stories, and how such technologies can help improve the quality of public services.

It has been a while since the last onsite Technology Forum. The upcoming forum, the eleventh of its series, is themed “Smartify the City with 5G” and, for the first time, will be held in hybrid mode, such that some participants will join the event in-person while others will tune into the event online. Other than sharing of innovative solutions with practical examples by expert speakers to illustrate the applications of 5G for exploring service, as well as enhancing service quality and efficiency, panel discussion and guide tours will be featured in this forum.

How to make use of innovation and technologies in fostering the development of 5G with a view to making Hong Kong a smarter city? Join us and get inspired to generate innovative ideas and continue to optimise our public service!

If you are interested in any of the topics, please don’t hesitate to join us and talk to the experts directly!
