Business Matching Activities at ICT Expo for Manufacturing/Logistic
and Information Technology industries
On 15 April 2015, business matching activities for manufacturing/logistics and Information Technology industries were held by Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and the Office of Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) during the ICT Expo at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
This event enabled SMEs to better understand how to use IT in their business. Manufacturing and logistics SMEs, and local IT companies were arranged to meet up concurrently for one-on-one fast communication to discuss how information and communications technology (ICT) can meet the business needs of SMEs, and help SMEs to improve operation efficiency and service.
Dr. Victor Ng, Senior Consultant of Hong Kong Productivity Council, presented the market research for manufacturing industry challenges and new technology for furniture design application. In the speed dating session, many manufacturing and logistics SMEs were looking for mobility solutions to enhance their operation efﬁciency and productivity. Some retailers, wholesalers and trade industries hope to use new promotion methods in order to increase sales volume and keep a long-term relationship with existing customers. They were also interested in our mobility solutions, ReportNOW and Conzoomer.
Furthermore, OGCIO invited SMEs and IT companies to participate in the cloud competition which consists of two awards, namely the “Best SME Cloud Adoptors” and the “Best SME Cloud Solutions”. Its objectives are to raise the awareness of cloud computing, promote the wider adoption among SMEs, and enhance SMEs’ understanding on the benefits of cloud computing.
