Gerontech and Innovation Expo cum Summit (GIES) is a flagship event jointly hosted by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service to promote technological application and innovation as a promising solution to enhance the quality of life of the elderly and people with disabilities in both the community and institutional setting.
The 4th Gerontech and Innovation Expo cum Summit (GIES) is confirmed to be held during 19-22 November 2020. GIES 2020 would continue to include thematic exhibition booths and pavilions to showcase the latest innovations and ideas for better living of elderly persons as well as other people with special needs. In addition, workshops and interactive programmes would also be organized to provide a diversified experience for the participants.
Apart from inviting more exhibitors, including both local and those from overseas to bring in through GIES new insights for the social service sector, we also plan to set up a special zone for the welfare sector to demonstrate how gerontech can enhance the quality of life of service users and that of their carers, and improve the working environment for front line staff in the social service industry.
If you are interested to exhibit at GIES, please do not hesitate to contact the GIES secretariat office. A briefing session is now scheduled on 16th July 2020 afternoon to further explain how you might want to participate in GIES 2020. Kindly please complete the online registration by 14th July 2020.
