United Hong Kong: An Unprecedented Event Concept In The New Normal
Given the recent developments, the conditions for holding the United Hong Kong Benefit are no longer as safe as we needed, and we have taken the decision to postpone the fundraiser. For more information, please see here.
United Hong Kong will be a pioneer on numerous fronts, bringing together industries to work together for a common cause and setting the tone for the new normal in the events space.
The United Hong Kong Benefit will take place––fully compliant with all the latest government regulations and social distancing rules. Each event will host up to a maximum of 50 people, in groups of four people at each table, all spaced 1.5 metres apart.
Live-streamed content will be shared across the venues, and each location will also set the stage for an unforgettable evening of immersive experiences and gastronomic delights, with all food and beverages served only when guests are seated.
United Hong Kong is proudly partnering with Prenetics, a leading global Covid-19 technology provider, to distribute 1,200 testing kits prior to the event for all participating staff and guests.
We have an opportunity to demonstrate that Hong Kong is again at the forefront of innovation, by showing the world what the new normal in the events space is.
Prenetics is a leading genetics and diagnostic health testing company, operational in 10 countries with a team of over 200. Prenetics, driven by a duty of social responsibility due to the global pandemic launched Project Screen, an initiative aimed at making Covid-19 testing easy, safe and accurate. Prenetics has to-date performed more than 300,000 RT-PCR tests in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
In Hong Kong, Prenetics was the 1st private laboratory to have been appointed by the Hong Kong government for mass community testing. In the United Kingdom, Prenetics was instrumental in the re-start of the English Premier League season having done the testing across 20 clubs for all of their players and coaches, as well as introducing a digital health passport in stadiums.
2020 will be a year that we will all remember. Many of the memories will be of what the past was like, where we could travel, see our family and friends, make new connections and attend events that enlighten us. This is why we are humbled to partner with United Hong Kong, not just an event, but a show of togetherness, an act of kindness, and to show our can-do spirit which is the lifeline of Hong Kong. While it's just one night, I hope we can show the world what the new "safe" norm looks like.
