Members of Asia Society Hong Kong Center are invited to the guided tour of the "Believe in Hong Kong" exhibition, celebrating more than a century and a half of Swire businesses in Hong Kong. Participants of the tour will be guided on Swire's 150-year journey through interactive play and experiences along with historic artefacts and engaging photo spots.
Swire opened the doors of its first Hong Kong office on 1st May 1870. Over more than a century and a half, the group has grown and evolved with the city, pioneering businesses that have helped put Hong Kong on the map as a global commercial hub. Today, Swire is a leading player in Hong Kong's property, aviation and beverage sectors. As a developer and landlord, as an airline operator, manufacturer and retailer - as well as an employer - the Swire group's operations touch the lives of most Hong Kong people.
There are 6 themed zones in this family-friendly exhibition, namely "Early Entrepreneurship", "Refining Industry", "Maritime Evolution", "Transforming Communities", "Building an Aviation Hub", and "Realising Potential". This exhibition aims to take visitors along on Swire's 150-year journey and evoke memories of the public. With the hands-on experiences, historic artefacts, and fun photo spots, you can have a better understanding and involvement in this Swire journey.
