    So Klose was invited as the Special Guest Speaker at Hong Kong Top Brand and Hong Kong Emerging Brand Awards Press Conference 2012


    Ms Carolyn Chan, Director of So Klose, was invited as one of the special guest speaker to share her experience in Hong Kong Emerging Service Brand Award at the Hong Kong Top Brand and Emerging Brand Awards 2012 Press Conference on 24 July 2012, organized by the Hong Kong Brand Development Council and Hong Kong Chinese Manufacturers' Association.

    From 2010 onwards, the BDC and CMA introduced the ‘Hong Kong Emerging Brand Awards & Hong Kong Emerging Service Brand Awards’, which, targeted at product brands and service brands respectively, aim to give recognition to up-and-coming young brandnames established by Hong Kong companies. Entries into the new Awards should be aged less than eight years, and the number of winners will be capped at five for each category.

    The new award scheme would serve as an incubation base for the Hong Kong Top Brand Awards and Hong Kong Top Service Brand Awards, and its reviewing mechanism is modeled after the latter, with deliberate modifications to accommodate the special characteristics of emerging brands. Entries into the Emerging Awards will be assessed mainly based on six factors, i.e. Reputation, Distinctiveness, Innovation, Quality, Image, and Environmental Performance and Social Responsibility, yet with an emphasis on Innovation and Quality. The judging process comprises on-site assessment and a review by the Final Judging Panel; but unlike the Top Brand Awards, there will be no public polling.

    To enhance synergy, the working schedules for ‘Hong Kong Top Brand Awards & Hong Kong Top Service Brand Awards’ and ‘Hong Kong Emerging Brand Awards & Hong Kong Emerging Service Brand Awards’ are well-aligned. The enrolment period started in early July and will end on 31 August.

    So Klose believes that the competition was a very meaningful one as it helps promote Hong Kong Brands among Hong Kong public.


    緣來這麼近被邀出任香港品牌發展局及香港中華廠商聯合會主辦於724日舉行的2012年「香港新星品牌選舉暨香港新星服務品牌選舉」新聞發佈會特別嘉賓, 就得獎心得發言及經驗分享。
