Theme: The Future of Fun

This event occurred on
November 24, 2012
9:00am - 6:00pm HKT
(UTC +8hrs)
Quarry Bay,
Hong Kong

The theme of this year is "The Future of Fun" - what do we mean when we say that we have Fun? Is it a feeling? Is it an activity? Is it limited by our own experiences or does it transcend common knowledge?

This year we want to explore the idea of Fun. We have experienced industry experts from all kinds of areas - from the physical aspect of fun such as martial arts, to the trendier and modern digital aspect of fun, and everything in between.

We hope that you will enjoy this event as much as we enjoyed curating it, and are sure that you'll have a fun-filled time.
