HKTDC Education & Careers Expo opens tomorrow
On-site recruitment and inspiring seminars to guide you to success

1 February 2023 – Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the 32nd HKTDC Education & Careers Expo runs from tomorrow to 5 February at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Dr Choi Yuk-lin, Secretary for Education, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, will be the Guest of Honour at the opening ceremony.


700 organisations – including Hong Kong, Mainland China and foreign educational institutions, various consulates general, public organisations and private companies – will offer information on education in 20 countries and regions as well as employment opportunities. Admission is free of  charge.


Following the resumption of quarantine-free mainland-Hong Kong travel and removal of most COVID restrictions, many industries are enlarging their talent pools to grow in this new normal and seize post-pandemic opportunities. This is particularly the case for the travel and tourism and catering industries. The Expo offers a unique and insightful platform for students to network with educational institutions and employers.


The Expo offers designated zones under two major categories, Education and Careers, giving the public information related to education and workplace opportunities.


In the Careers-themed Zones, representatives from professional bodies, recruitment platforms, government departments and public and private organisations will share the latest career information and offer nearly 3,000 job openings. Employers at the Recruitment Square Zone will accept job applications and interview candidates on-site.


The Education-themed Zones will provide admission information of local, mainland and international universities, post-secondary institutions, continuing education institutes and more, while the Youth Zone will feature a number of internship and job opportunities.


More than 80 informative events will be held during the Expo, including seminars on further education and career opportunities. Industry experts will share valuable insights and experiences, including Mr Henry Lee, Account Director, Talent and Learning Solutions of LinkedIn, who will highlight the latest trends in Hong Kong’s labour market and offer job-hunting tips for the digital age. Mr Sunny Chan, director and screenwriter of Hong Kong films Table for Six and Men on the Dragon, will reflect on his inspiring journey from screenwriter to director. Fataunt, a registered nurse and YouTuber, will talk about how he became a key opinion leader when attending university. Mr Siu Yan-ho, doctoral lecturer, will share his journey from being an under-achiever to becoming a doctoral lecturer.


Catering to industry demand, the Expo will feature a range of Career Theme Days. Co-organised with the Vocational Training Council (VTC), the first Theme Day will be  VPET: Skilling Talent for the Future (tomorrow); followed by the GBA Opportunities Theme Day (3 February); Exploring Construction Industry (4 February)  co-organised with the Hong Kong Institute of Construction (HKIC); and the Slasher Generation Theme Day (5 February).


The Expo will feature several emerging study hotspots in Education Theme Days, focusing on the European Union (tomorrow), United Kingdom (3 February), France (4 February) and Germany (5 February), which provide in-depth introductions to these popular overseas education destinations, including admission requirements and process, campus life and more.
