The Gerontech and Innovation Expo cum Summit (GIES) is jointly organised by the Chief Secretary for

GIES aims to support the Government’s policy of promoting healthy and active ageing. Through exhibition, demonstrations, thematic forums and workshops, GIES provides a platform drawing together stakeholders to showcase the latest innovative products and ideas of technology application and inclusive design from around the world and to engage in dialogue to identify the driving forces for encouraging innovation for the ageing population in Hong Kong and the hurdles to overcome.
