Introduction of Organiser:

Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Association (HKDEA) was established in 1999 as a non-profit making association comprised of digital entertaining corporations. It is dedicated to the betterment of the local digital entertainment industry.

HKDEA's missions are:

  • To promote technology development within the industry in order to deliver internationally competitive products;

  • To explore and develop new markets;

  • To project a positive image associated with playing video games;

  • To discourage software piracy; and

  • To facilitate communication and interaction between industries, including toys, entertainment and video games, which are associated with digital entertainment.

The HKDEA was founded during a time when there were relatively few local digital entertainment establishments. It was thus established to provide a mechanism upon which local developers could cooperate to ensure industry-wide prosperity.

Since its establishment, the HKDEA has organized a variety of activities and events including:

  • Hong Kong ICT Awards: Digital Entertainment

  • Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Excellence Awards

  • Conferences

  • Overseas Promotions

  • Local Promotions

  • HKDEA Web Site building

  • Seminars and Training
