The "Hong Kong Innovation and Invention Exhibition" project exhibition area is located at Booth B61 in Hall 1, covering 80 square meters. The Hong Kong Exporters' Association organizes the project and is sponsored by the Innovation and Technology Commission. It aims to provide the local innovation and technology industry free international exchange opportunities, bring Hong Kong innovation and technology products onto the global stage, and promote Hong Kong's innovation and technology stories to the world.

The "Hong Kong Innovation and Invention Exhibition" showcases Hong Kong innovations and inventions covering five major categories: smart city, smart home and life, innovative finance, health technology and pharmaceuticals, intelligent transportation, and intelligent industry. The innovation and technology products on display include:

Smart City: In Hong Kong, the elderly population reached 1.57 million in 2023. The number is projected to further increase to a daunting 2.74 million in 2046, accounting for approximately 33.5% of Hong Kong's total population. SINOVATED TECHNOLOGY's one-stop intelligent monitoring system for eldercare centers, "SAFERIN," integrates three core functions of health risk assessment, safety monitoring, and workforce management in institutions. It assists the nursing staff's workload and care pressure, eases the workforce needs of eldercare centers, and enhances institutions' service quality and operational efficiency.

Smart home and life: GREEN DAY INC's carbon dioxide recovery and resource regeneration device, CIONEX, can convert carbon dioxide into carbon storage materials or algae cultivation, achieving circular utilization.
Innovative Finance: The ETBadge, which Eternal Technology invented, adopts blockchain technology, which allows learners to present reliable and authentic academic and professional skills certifications to potential employers. The properties of blockchain make such certifications challenging to tamper with and counterfeit, and their authenticity is independent of verification by a central institution.

Health Technology and Pharmaceuticals: Gense Technologies' portable health screening device, Mediscan, can be used for preventive screening and at-home monitoring of chronic diseases, focusing on the liver, lungs, kidneys, and other areas. It is suitable for home use, eldercare services, and clinics.
Intelligent transportation: The electronic lock developed by the Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre can help reduce the need for customs officers in two places to repeatedly inspect the same batch of goods, improving cross-border customs clearance efficiency.

The electronic lock has been used since 2016 at 63 customs clearance points in Guangdong Province and Hunan Province in mainland China, together with 13 clearance points in Hong Kong, assisting mainland and Hong Kong Customs in implementing the "One Lock Across Borders" initiative.
Intelligent industry: Shanghai Leading Technology's microwave plasma chemical vapor deposition system is an advanced material preparation equipment used to grow large-sized, high-quality films, coatings, or crystals in semiconductor manufacturing, optoelectronics, coating preparation, and optical coatings. Applications such as diamond growth play a key role.

Eric Sun, Chairman of Hong Kong Exporters' Association, said, "Hong Kong's technology companies have developed innovative solutions with global potential. The Hong Kong Exporters' Association and the Innovation and Technology Commission are showcasing 43 Hong Kong innovations at the International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva. This renowned exhibition allows Hong Kong's tech industry to engage with international leaders, aiding overseas market expansion and facilitating the sector's internationalization.

Caroline Simonet, Director of the Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions, said, "The rapid pace of technological change continues to reshape the global business environment, transforming industries of all types. At this year's exhibition, we witnessed Hong Kong's dynamic spirit of invention on full display through the region's innovators, who demonstrated creative solutions brimming with potential. Looking ahead, we aim to foster increased opportunities for international exchange and learning to elevate promising ideas from diverse origins to broader audiences. By facilitating open collaboration, all regions may share in the benefits of innovation as knowledge circulates more freely, driving progress for the benefit of people worldwide."
