Photos taken in the past has been enclosed as the background.

| PRODUCTION |
Boosting the interactivity, a 42” Touch Screen Information Kiosk has been installed onsite with configured software. The agility of software has been tailored-made to deliver the information sources provided by HKPL. OneZebra offered the hardware and freeware for this showcase, a professional support team has rendered ultimate advocate on this success throughout the exhibition period.
We strive on the digitalization; but we always cherish the on-the-ground production as where we excel our expertise. A glass served as the separation of the exhibition hall and the interactive zone, with the Information Kiosk situated at the center. On the two sides, imagine there were children playground for the kids to play around with Tic-Tac-Toe and slides. For the glass decoration, we deliberately pasted some die-cut logo stickers of the event on it. Guess what, when the sun shines through, the silhouette will be shadowed on the floor.
| CHALLENGE & REWARD |
Since most of the exhibited articles, newspaper clips, and display are invaluable and most of them are truly delicate. We paid the utmost effort on handling them with great care, in order to ensure keeping them flawless. Our effort has been actualized through the positive feedback and support from our client and the mass, and thee the exhibition has been extended from one month to two months.
