Explore a world of cutting-edge smart-city solutions and information and communications technology (ICT) applications across all sectors at the HKTDC International ICT Expo. Learn about the next-generation strategies that can provide a clearer path towards the brighter, smarter cities of tomorrow.
Just as our view of the universe has changed radically over time – from a flat earth under a dome of sky to a planet on a solar system in one of hundreds of billions of galaxies – so our perception of the rapidly evolving metaverse is shifting constantly.
