Organized by The Hong Kong Exporters’ Association (HKEA), the Hong Kong Smart Design Awards 2021 (HKSDA) is currently recruiting submissions that amalgamate design with technology from both enterprises and individual designers who wish to promote their creations onto a regional or global stage and help showcase Hong Kong as a designer hub. Online exhibition platform Ex Sourcing will debut next January. The winning works will be featured in at least five exhibitions overseas to not only promote local designers, but to reach marry them with the right businesses and to groom Hong Kong into a city of creativity.
