Title

Overview

Body

Background

The Hong Kong ICT Awards aims at recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong’s ICT talents and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs. 

The Hong Kong ICT Awards was established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, and organised by Hong Kong ICT industry associations and professional bodies, the Awards aims at building a locally espoused and internationally acclaimed brand of ICT awards.

There are eight categories under the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2020.  There will be one Grand Award in each category, and an “Award of the Year” will be selected from the eight Grand Awards by the Grand Judging Panel.

Objective

1. Building Hong Kong as a Smart City with novice ICT applications 
Mobility and transport are essential if a city is to function properly. There cannot be a smart city without Smart Mobility. A smart city should be connected and citizen-centric, which is accessible to visitors and residents, travelling and moving goods across the city trouble-free, bringing citizens and visitors more convenience, better quality of lives, more sustainable power usage, higher level of safety and city competitiveness.

The objective of the award programme is to encourage more designs and development of applications leveraging the integration of Internet of Things (IoT), big data and analytics, as well as mobile applications, which will enhance the flow of people, goods, and tourists; improve citizens' and visitors’ experience; and enable smart mobility for a smarter Hong Kong.

2. Championing HK as a Hub for IT Talents, Creativity and Innovations
The Award programme will serve as a platform to facilitate the community to have a dynamic and transparent exchange of expertise with renowned ICT professionals, to sparkle and co-create innovative ideas, and to nurture technology talents. GS1 HK will also nominate appropriate winners to participate at other regional and global awards competition.

We hope that through these recognising and nurturing initiatives, it will further stimulate creativity.

3. Inspiring Local Industry Adoption 
Innovation and technology are drivers for economic growth and the key to enhance business competitiveness. Award winning cases attest to successful implementation, helping users in Transport, Logistics and Tourism to understand the value of smart business applications, encouraging industry adoption, creating a mutually beneficial interaction between technology and business sectors, which leads to a sustainable eco-system of technology-driven new business paradigm.

Award Streams


Smart Transport

Transportation is an important pillar for every citizen in a city. Smart technology can be leveraged to improve transportation experience and convenience for user. Connected vehicles, alternate fuel vehicles, autonomous vehicles, car pooling, smart parking, smart traffic devices, upgrading airport into a smart airport through automation, mobility, personalisation and self-service are some of the examples of how smart transport can create a seamless, passenger-centric travel experience while minimising the impact on environment. 

The objective of this stream aims at using ICT, making mobility 'intelligent', improving traffic monitoring, transportation accessibility and efficiency, cutting down door-to-door journey times, reducing congestion, improving the flow of people, safety and liveability, thus, enhancing quality of life for citizens.

Smart Logistics

Smart Logistics is about improving the supply chain, shifting from traditional supply chains to open supply networks, together with integration of new technologies in managing the goods movement, inventory, warehousing, handling, packaging and security of goods between the point of origin and the final recipient, no matter whether the means of transportation is by land, by sea, or multi-modal, so as to achieve end-to-end supply chain efficiency and visibility.

The objective of this stream aims at using technologies innovatively to improve supply chain visibility, streamline and optimise the cargo and baggage handling efficiency and intensity in logistics industry of Hong Kong.

Smart Tourism

Smart technologies are changing consumer experiences and are generating creative tourism business models. Big data, mobile apps, location-based services, geo-tag services, facial recognition, beacon technology, virtual reality, augmented reality, and social networking services are all cutting-edge examples of smart technologies enhancing tourism experiences and services. Smart tourism allows tourists to better communicate and interact with cities to establish closer relationships with not only residents but also local businesses, local government and city attractions.

The objective of this stream aims at using technologies innovatively to achieve resource optimisation and convenience for the tourism industry. Also, to enhance travellers' information accessibility, transportation, dining (food and food services), shopping and accommodation experience.
