21st European Annual Networking Cocktail: Innovation Day & Annual Cocktail Party

Please email yammie@britcham.com for more information

Our friends at the European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (EuroCham) invite you to the 21st European Annual Networking Cocktail. The topic of this year’s event is Innovation focusing on Hong Kong’s Smart City approach.

The event will start with opening remarks by:

- Isabel Zisselsberger, Partner, KPMG China
- Robert Agnew, Chairman, European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong
- Carmen Cano, Ambassador Head of Office, European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macau


This will be followed by innovation talks from EuroCham’s business councils sharing their perspectives on the future of Hong Kong as a Smart City. Representatives from EuroCham’s business councils and their focus points are:

Carl-Frederik Zachrisson, Managing Director at Scania Hong Kong & Vice Chairman of the European Automotive Council (EAC)

Focus on reducing fuel emission, alternative fuels, greener transport technologies, new energy vehicles and more.
 


Tom Uiterwaal, CEO at Reconergy (Hong Kong) Ltd. & Chairman of the Environment and Energy Business Council (EEBC)

Focus on waste management, energy efficiency in buildings, waste to energy, plastic bottle recycling and more.

 

Alexandra Tracy, Founder and President at Hoi Ping Ventures & member of the Financial Service Business Council (FSBC)

Focus on green finance (opportunities, requirements, incentives, and learnings from Europe)


 
Per Dahlberg, Managing Partner at SpringPoint & Chairman of the Information, Communication and Technology Business Council (ICTBC)

 

 

Dahlberg will be interviewing Dr. David Chung Wai-Keung, Under Secretary of the Innovation and Technology Bureau (ITB). This will be interesting as Hong Kong Government has proclaimed “Innovation and technology” as the key to the future of the city.

 

 

There will also be a networking cocktail with free flow of drinks and canapés and a lucky draw with business class tickets on Cathay Pacific to any destination in Europe!

 

Non-members of the British Chamber can book directly through EuroCham by emailing:  eac@eurocham.com.hk.
