The Caring Company Partnership Expo 2018 was successfully held on 16 March 2018 (Friday) at Hall 5FG of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, with over 4,000 participants from businesses and social services sectors, joining us to explore new community partnership opportunities, sustainable and CSR solutions.
The officiating guest Mr Matthew CHEUNG Kin-chung, Chief Secretary for Administration, The Government of the HKSAR, presented awards to the winners of the Outstanding Partnership Project Award.
The Partnership Expo continued to promote and strengthen partnership between the business and social service sectors by providing platform for networking and exchange ideas. 118 exhibitors, coming from local NGOs and social enterprises exhibited with topic of social service, social enterprise or sustainability. In addition, an experiential zone – “Social Needs X-perience” is set up this year to allow participants to experience and visualise social needs through interactive devices. For example, to allow participants experiencing life as a child in sub-divided unit and mental patients and by different Virtual Reality (VR) experiences; to enhance participants' empathy towards the elderly with the specially designed simulation gear; and to facilitate general understanding of the “Real Challenge” of the disabled people by a wheel chair obstacle game.
All these elements have made this annual occasion become fruitful. It also enhanced mutual understanding and nurtured partnership between companies and social service organizations.
