"So French So Innovative" exhibition from November 16th to 27th in Hong Kong [fr]
So French So Innovative is the showcase of the best innovations and technologies France has to offer. This interactive exhibition invites visitors to discover the latest trends and breakthroughs in technology and innovation. Companies are invited to display their savoir faire, and engage with the general public. This is a unique opportunity to reach out to the local community, mix up with academics and business professionals, and to top it all, get some visibility with Hong Kong officials.
Following the great success last year with overwhelming response from the public and trade sector on the “So French So Innovative” Exhibition, the French Foreign Trade Advisors in Hong Kong and The French Chamber supported by the French Consulate and Le Comité France Chine work together once again this year for the second edition of “So French So Innovative” Exhibition. There will be even richer exhibits this year from more participating companies, displaying in a holistic way, the number of different processes, services and products where this “French Creative Thinking” applies.
The exhibition will take place at One IFC Mall, Main Concourse Podium on 16 – 27 November 2015. This year, the organizer has included nearly 20 exhibitors. Highlights will be on high-end communication technologies used in transportation or aircraft, on advanced technology to facilitate smart urban living or to improve working environment, and on advanced research applied to daily health items to high securities systems for corporate. Finally, “live demonstrations” will be proposed to discover why French “Fintech” benefits from a worldwide reputation, and to enjoy entertainment with drones as well as interactive educational tools.
Mostly based in Hong Kong, these companies are adapting their technology in creating a smart and eco-friendly living for Hong Kong people.
