Swire to look back into the past with exhibition

A free exhibition about Swire (0019, 0087) 150-year business history in Hong Kong is to be held at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum from August 27 to October 21.

The exhibition, named “Believe in Hong Kong,” will present the conglomerate’s history from the opening of its first Hong Kong office in 1870.

Guy Bradley, Chairman of John Swire & Sons (H.K.) Limited, said: “This exhibition aims to take visitors along on Swire’s 150-year journey in Hong Kong, from a trading and shipping business to a respected international conglomerate. Our history is inextricably linked with this city’s growth and success and today, Swire businesses touch the lives of most Hong Kong people: as a developer and landlord, as an airline operator, manufacturer, and retailer – as well as an employer.”

Swire also said the exhibition is family-friendly, with historic artifacts and pictures alongside fun, interactive experiences and photo booths. There will be virtual tours from 3rd September onward.

The public can register via the company’s website, to visit the physical exhibition.
