Registration closed

We are now in an era where the majority of brand conversations happen on social media, with companies focused on attracting the eyes (and wallets) of the 'Instagram Generation' - a group that often values experiences over things. 

The Travel Industry has been hugely impacted by the rise of social media - with the constant stream of content produced by influencers, travelers and brands being a core driver behind shifting travel trends.

As the other marquee event in our Travel Month, Garage Academy is honoured to invite HK Express, Hong Kong’s only low-cost carrier which brought true competition to the Hong Kong market and surrounding region; and ANYDOKO, a leading travel video studio dedicated to the visual experience of travel, to share their distinctive insight of building their business around this Instagram Generation.

What to expect?

An inspiring and interactive talk about how HK Express was able to find a comfortable spot in the market by developing tailor-made products for the new generation; and the secret of high quality of video content creation shared by ANYDOKO.

Who should attend?

  • If you would like to know more about the characteristics of the Instagram Generation and how to target this market.
  • If you plan to build your business for the young generation
  • If you are a content creator/influencer
