HKTDC Education & Careers Expo 2015 - Highlights
The Education & Careers Expo 2015 was held successfully on 5-8 February at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Thank you all students, parents, teachers and industry professionals for visiting Raffles Hong Kong’s booth and joining our design events.
Apart from providing information on tertiary design studies, a variety of special events were arranged to let visitors have a deeper understanding about design. Those events include the Exclusive Photo-taking Experience “The Design Shadow Box”, the Design Talk “What you should know about studying design – Meet the Design Professionals” & the Exclusive Meeting the Designers Session after the talk, as well as the Design Q&A, attracting more than 2000 participants.
The Exclusive Photo-taking Experience “The Design Shadow Box”
After the great success of the Photo Zone held last year, we held the photo-taking activity again this year using the concept of a “shadow box”. Participants went inside the “shadow box” with a fashion runway, graphic design and interior design works. The scene was made of different layers to create a 3D view, making participants feel like standing inside a small world of design. More than 700 visitors participated in this event.
Design Talk - “What you should know about studying design – Meet the Design Professionals” & the Exclusive Meeting the Designers Session
