2017-40u40-063The 40 Under 40 Awards 2019 will once again be held at The Annex event space in Central, on May 28. Not only a great celebration and a lot of fun, the evening is also a platform to rub shoulders with the industry's finest. Last year's event was attended by more than 200 industry professionals, including renowned architects and designers, sponsors and property developers.

"I think that this is a very good opportunity for everyone to connect with the people, either in the art career or design career, and to build a huge connection and community that will support one and other," said Thai video artist and 2018 40 Under 40 Award winner, Kawita Vatanajyankur on receiving the award.

Following on from the success of previous years, a design forum and Q&A session will be held prior to the 40 Under 40 Awards 2019 ceremony. Last year's topic (Harbouring ambitions: Shaping the future of Hong Kong's waterfront) sparked plenty of lively debate, drawing some 100 participants. Moderated by Professor Nasrine Seraji of the Department of Architecture, the University of Hong Kong, guest panellists included: Barrie Ho, Christine Lam, David Buffonge, John Batten, Paul Zimmerman and Simon Bee. This year's topic and speakers will be announced soon, but is sure to once again stimulate plenty of interesting dialogue and debate among panellists and members of the audience.
