A new smartphone application, called EventsHK was launched by the Office of the Government CIO (OGCIO) in Hong Kong. The app provides Hong Kong citizens and tourists with information on public events organised by the government or hosted at government venues and facilities.
The free app, which is available for iOS and Android-based smartphones, offers users information about events across categories, such as festivals, entertainment performances, library and museum programmes, and exhibitions. Users can search by category, keyword or date of the event, and even share an interesting event via email, social media channels, or SMS.
Currently on its initial phase, EventHK will include information from the Home Affairs Department, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Housing Department, the Hong Kong Observatory and the Hong Kong Tourism Board. Events organised by other departments will be included later.
