Mak Tsan Lam, Matthew


Location: Hong Kong
Years experience in sustainable event practice: 3

Details of experience:
I have been in PR and Event management for 10+ years, from a managerial level of an international PR agency to brand manager of a leading mobile phone, to becoming a founder of a local event production workshop. I have come across different roles of all kinds of events. One of my biggest campaigns was the global launch of Samsung Galaxy S (1st gen).

I have been interested in sustainable events since the 2012 London Olympic. It awoke me the event industry is silently damaging our environment and our society after every successful event; but it also inspired me to take action without hesitation.

Hong Kong is a vibrant and hustle city. While fans around the world are cheering at the Rugby Sevens in the stadium, local peoples celebrate the Lunar New Year with dancing dragons and lions on the street. I love Hong Kong is a city that is full of fun. And I believe that sustainable events management approach is one of the most important drivers for our society to become a sustainable city.
