2022 Junior Chamber International (JCI) World Congress Successfully Concludes in Hong Kong with Rich Destination Experiences and World-class Rugby Sevens

Hong Kong played host to the 2022 Junior Chamber International (JCI) World Congress, held from 31 October to 4 November 2022 and attended onsite and online by more than 4,000 local and global future-generation leaders for inspirational knowledge exchange and insightful sharing of business best practices.

JCI is a worldwide youth organisation that aims to provide development opportunities to empower young people to make positive changes. The JCI World Congress returned to Hong Kong after it was last held here in 1993, and became the first international congress hosted in the city since the pandemic, with in-person attendance by delegates from Venezuela, Cambodia, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Monaco, Myanmar, Mongolia and the Philippines.

With the event held at the same time as the city’s mega event Hong Kong Sevens resuming after a prolonged pandemic-induced suspension, JCI delegates were invited to the Hong Kong Stadium to feel the electrifying atmosphere of the hugely popular world-class sports extravaganza. Delegates were also invited to indulge their palates at the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival.

 

Congress success ensured with strong HKTB support

With the professional and dedicated support from the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), Hong Kong exhibited its ever-expanding capability to host such a large-scale congress despite the prolonged impact of the pandemic. The local host, JCI Hong Kong, was accorded extensive assistance ranging from bidding support to event preparation, promotion, funding and programme enhancement.
