GS1 HK Summit 2019 Concluded on a High Note 

Coinciding with our 30th Anniversary Week, GS1 HK Summit, themed “Smart Business – Creating, Connecting, Collaborating”, concluded on a high note with numerous insightful discussions, networking and ideas exchange. More than 25 speakers shared their collective wisdom on the integration of smart technologies, new operation process and business strategies that create an enhanced consumer journey and strengthen business connectivity. 

Dr. Raymond So, BBS, JP, Under Secretary for Transport and Housing, inaugurated the Summit as the Guest of Honour and delivered the opening address. He emphasised the importance of information connectivity along the supply chain to maintain Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s premium logistics hub. 

The Summit also saw the survey result announcement of “Digital Retail on the Rise” report, revealing that over half of surveyed consumers in Hong Kong identified themselves as “tech-savvy”, with their major activities being managing financial online. ( For details of the report please visit: ) The results drew intense discussion among prominent business leaders at the CEO Panel that follows to share their omni-channel commerce strategies to stay competitive and their engagement approach to Gen-Z consumers. 

Digitisation brings in massive amount of data, and how to leverage data to create consumer-centric experience and strengthen business connectivity are often challenges to businesses. Industry pioneers shared their innovative cases and strategies ranging from building a digital ecosystem, shaping the “cultural retail” concept, to renewing supply chain connectivity. Delegates were inspired by the diverse topics discussed.  

The Summit was completed by a brand new session “Board Forum: Innovating, Transforming, Sustaining”, where long-standing and new brands gathered and shared their “journey of innovation” to win the heart of consumers. 


Thank you for your support, we looking forward to seeing you again next year!
