Punch Party Hong Kong

Punch Party Hong Kong

Punch Party Hong Kong is the first event initiated and organised by local bloggers in Hong Kong. The party will consist of talks with no more than 7 minutes each, so every one of them will be brilliant and concise.

Punch Party originated from the Pecha Kucha events in Japan and is immensely popular in Taiwan. It was held in Beijing and Guangzhou and now Hong Kong. The theme for the first Hong Kong Punch Party will be on “Blogging and Career”.

Punch Party Hong Kong supports CC and the content of the party will be released under a CC licence. Punch Party Hong Kong also promotes the importance of sharing and they would like to invite all Creative Commons supporters to participate.

Date:20 Feb 2009
Time:7:30 pm
Venue:23/F Lincoln House, Taikoo Place, 979 King’s Road, Quarry Bay
The event will be conducted in Cantonese.
