Mr. Fred Lam


Welcome to the Smart Airport – Technovation Conference and Exhibition 2018!

Stepping into its fourth year, the Smart Airport – Technovation Conference and Exhibition continues to bring together airport community members and industry experts, offering them a platform to exchange ideas on the latest trends in innovative technology and solutions for service optimisation and excellence.

This year, we have selected "Internet of Things" as the theme of the conference and exhibition. Recent advances in tracking technology have made data more readily available, leading to the growing prominence in analysing and utilising data for service improvement and business gains. Data analytics and its applications are powerful in unveiling patterns and conducive to decisions making. With the technologies growing more mature, we will fully realise the potential of data to unlock greater possibilities.

HKIA strives to improve passengers’ experience and airport operations through the application of technology. Our recent developments enable passengers to navigate the airport and receive personalised information and promotional offers through augmented reality and iBeacon technologies. Meanwhile, video analytics and big data analysis facilitate airport community members to manage airport facilities and manpower resources more efficiently at both terminals and the ramp.

I would like to express my gratitude to our speakers and exhibitors for sharing their invaluable experience and insight, as well as the airport community members for their ongoing support. Together, we will work to steer HKIA towards new horizons through innovative application of technology.
