Together they offered attendees a wide range of valuable information which will enhance everybody's knowledge on current technologies.

The informative technical presentations were interjected with Live Tech Quiz (hosted by our Vice President Carol Sheng) and the exciting raffle (sponsored by Etagon). Member Laurel Lou, our lucky winner of the raffle, won a SONY Playstation2. Congratulations Laurel !
