I am pleased to announce that the Hong Kong International Computer Conference 2018 (HKICC2018) will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 6th to 7th November 2018. Theme of the conference this year is "Building a Smarter Bay Area through Technology Leadership ".

The Greater Bay Area (GBA) consists of Hong Kong, Macau, and 9 other nearby cities in Guangdong, including Shenzhen. This represents a population of 67 million people with a combined GDP that is 12% of the national economy. This provides enormous opportunities for collaboration and business synergies among the 11 cities as well as a united force to world markets. I believe that the development of the Greater Bay Area will provide tremendous opportunities for the technology industry. With the growing need for digitization and business transformation within this region, there will be great growth potential for IT professionals.

HKICC this year is to highlight the Greater Bay Area’s long-term development and opportunities for technology and digitalization. The conference will mainly focus on four major areas including "Artificial intelligence", "Risk and Regtech", "Shared economy" and "Cross-border opportunities". World class technology experts, business leaders, academics and policy makers will gather and exchange their insights, and I believe the attendees will be benefited enormously.

I look forward to seeing you at the Hong Kong International Computer Conference 2018.

本人欣然宣佈,香港國際電腦會議2018 (HKICC2018) 將於今年11月6日至7日在香港會議及展覽中心舉行,今年主題為「科技引領-打造智慧灣區」。

粵港澳大灣區(Greater Bay Area)的組成由香港、澳門、以及包括廣州、深圳在內的九個廣東城市組成,擁有六千七百萬人口,佔國內生產總值百分之十二。十一個城市相輔相成,於國際市場內將可產生極大的協同效應。相信大灣區的發展,將為資訊科技界,提供各種令人振奮的機遇。隨著大灣區對數碼和業務轉型的需求不斷增長,資訊科技專業人員於大灣區內的發展潛力非常巨大。

是次香港國際電腦會議的焦點,在於突出大灣區科技和數碼化的長遠發展及機遇,並就「人工智能」、「風險及監管科技」、「共享經濟」及「跨境合作機遇」等四大範疇進行探討。世界級的資訊及通訊科技專家、商界領袖、學者及政府管理階層人士將雲集交流,並就各議題交換其真知灼見,相信將令出席者獲益良多。

希望能在香港國際電腦會議2018與你相見。多謝各位。
