Hong Kong Tatler Launches the 2nd Edition of Generation T

[HONG KONG – MAY 31, 2017] – Hong Kong Tatler is launching the second edition of its Generation T List, which recognises 50 of Hong Kong’s brightest connectors and rising talent across a breadth of industries.

The Generation T 2017 List, compiled by Hong Kong Tatler in conjunction with a distinguished panel of industry experts and influential business leaders in Hong Kong, continues to be the ultimate reference guide to the young, up-and-coming figures who are shaping the city’s future.

Introduced in 2016, Generation T is an Asia-wide community composed of passionate individuals under 40 years old who work in a variety of industries such as art, technology, food & beverage, fashion, design, medicine, science, music, film, environment and sports. Generation T recognises those entrepreneurs and passionate young leaders who are united by a common drive to excel and make their marks in numerous fields.

After last year’s success, Generation T is expanding its community by adding 50 of Hong Kong’s brightest and most talented who have changed or shaped their industries in the last 18 months. The judging panel selects Generation T honourees based on recent accomplishments and initiatives that distinguish them as potential leaders of the next generation.

Generation T is not only a list, but also a platform that provides learning, collaboration and networking opportunities to support the growth of the community. It gathers Generation T-listers from a mix of industries to connect and partner with each other through enriching experiences and exclusive content focusing on entrepreneurship, innovation, personal development and lifestyle, ultimately helping them to accelerate their careers and expand their businesses across the region. Generation T also offers a range of opportunities for brands to partner with honourees through bespoke events, curated content, enriching experiences and campaigns across Hong Kong Tatler’s multiple platforms.

Tamara Lamunière, Head of Generation T Asia, says: “Tatler is a brand that celebrates Hong Kong’s most established and successful individuals. With Generation T, we honour and recognise individuals who could one day be in their place as Hong Kong’s leaders. We look at individuals demonstrating passion, purpose and potential. We also look beyond social media influence and at all cross sections of society, which makes this community particularly diverse and dynamic.”

Jakki Phillips, Editor-in-Chief for Hong Kong Tatler, explains: “Hong Kong is changing. A new generation is rising up, making its mark and leading us into the future. Ambitious, innovative and inspiring—they are Generation T, and we are proud to recognise their remarkable achievements with this year’s list.”

As an Asia-wide initiative, all regional Tatler editions, including China, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand, will also launch their Generation T 2017 lists at events from April to August 2017, creating a pan-Asian list of 500 top young entrepreneurs.

The Hong Kong list will be unveiled at an invitation-only launch party on June 23, 2017, where Generation T honourees and their distinguished guests will be in attendance. The journey of the Generation T community will also be showcased on hongkongtatler.com, which has recently launched a section dedicated to these remarkable individuals.

Hong Kong Tatler’s inaugural Generation T 2016 list honoured a variety of individuals including Kevin Ma, Harris Chan, Claudine Ying and Vicky Lau. For the full list, visit hongkongtatler.com/generationt
