ABOUT THE CEREMONY
Appcara has been honored at the star-studded 2017 Hong Kong Awards for Industries ceremony on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. Mrs. Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) was the Guest of Honor that presented the awards this year.
About the Awards:
Supported by the Government, the HKAI was launched in 2005 by merging the former Hong Kong Awards for Industry and Hong Kong Awards for Services, established in 1989 and 1997 respectively. The HKAI comprises seven categories, each overseen by a respective organizer, including: Consumer Product Design, Equipment and Machinery Design, Customer Service, Innovation and Creativity, Productivity and Quality, Technological Achievement and Upgrading and Transformation. Overall coordination of the HKAI is provided by the Organizing Committee of the HKAI. This Committee is chaired by the Director-General of Trade and Industry with membership drawn from the respective organizers of the seven award categories.
The symbol of the HKAI, expressed both in the award logo and in the trophies conferred on winners, juxtaposes two precious elements, a pearl and a pierced jade amulet, to form a design which has happy connotations in both Chinese and Western contexts.
The pearl is of particular significance to Hong Kong, an ancient source of fine pearls in China, and traditionally known as the Pearl of the Orient. The jade amulet represents the Heaven, according to Eastern Han scholar Zheng Xuan. The pierced disc resembles the ancient calligraphic symbol for the sun, and the amulet is decorated with a stylized version of the traditional 'grain' pattern. In Chinese, the two words together signify a perfect match. In the Western context, the two symbols together form the letter 'Q', which is widely associated with the concept of quality.
