Continuing the celebration of the mega transformation of Plaza 66, the Hang Lung flagship Mainland project, the mall organised a large-scale event in 2018, which was attended by more than 2,000 guests, highlighting its market position as the Home to Luxury. The celebration also saw the official launch of “HOUSE 66” — the brand-new customer relationship management program dedicated to forming enduring bonds with customers through the curation of unique and highly personalized services. This is the third consecutive year that Plaza 66 has returned from the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards with a glowing report card of accolades.
The two bronze Stevie Awards presented at the 2019 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the sixth and seventh awards that the HLYAP has won over the past two years. HLYAP demonstrated our commitment in promoting architectural education amongst local youngsters by encouraging them to appreciate the relationship between architecture and our communities. The HLYAP is dedicated to promoting architecture as an important cultural and social asset distinct from the buildings themselves. The HLYAP’s adopts innovative approaches to broadening the horizons and architectural knowledge of a new generation of future architects. The 2019/20 edition of the Program will begin the school recruitment process in May 2019. Please visit https://youngarchitects.hanglung.com/ for more information.
