10,000 Unicity Attendees Celebrate Leadership & Innovation in Hong Kong

Unicity International, a global wellness company, chose Hong Kong as the city to host its 2018 Global Leadership & Innovation Conference. Over 10,000 franchise owners from 50 countries and regions gathered on 19 and 20 January 2018 under the theme of ‘Be Diamond, Be U’.

The delegates travelled seamlessly from Hong Kong International Airport to AsiaWorld-Expo, the multi-functional mega event space located just a minute’s express train ride away from the airport, for the two-day event filled with innovation, recognition, and entertainment. They learnt about product innovation and heard from university professors and experts who shared the latest advancements in metabolism and health.

‘Eyes’ on Hong Kong as the City Strengthens the ‘Backbone’ of Success

Spine World Summit 2018 gathered over 4,000 delegates in orthopaedics, neurosurgery and other healthcare practices from more than 100 distinguished faculties and 25 international associations at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 26–27 January. Thanks to Hong Kong’s excellent connectivity and proximity to China, the number of overseas visitors doubled, with over 50% from Mainland China.

“Selecting a host city in Asia Pacific for our conference is never an easy task. Hong Kong simply has the DNA for hosting a successful conference: its prime location as a central hub, modern infrastructure, visa-free policy and not to mention its fascinating choice of local attractions that appeal to our KOLS, academic leaders, clinical experts and our sponsors.” Patrick Wong, Managing Director, Spine World Limited

All eyes were on Hong Kong during the 33rd Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) Congress, a dominant driving force behind ophthalmic development in the region, held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 8–11 February.

With over 5,000 delegates from 87 countries presenting their latest works and scientific innovations in major subspecialties, APAO 2018 took the opportunity to enhance the overall conference experience by mixing business with pleasure and goodwill. They held a presidential dinner at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and organised an early morning charity run along the Central Harbourfront against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s breathtaking skyline with the goal of supporting visually impaired athletes.

Following the two medical conventions, the city will continue to see a great line-up of events in association conventions. See our events calendar to learn more.
