On Wednesday (10th December) we had the pleasure of hosting about 25 visitors to Dream Cortex. This sizable group was part of the 150-strong Dutch delegation to Business Of Design Week 2008. The Dutch delegation are active in multimedia, online, game and animation content in the Netherlands, and the visit was led by Antoinette Hoes (Leylines), Bruni Hofman (Syntens) and Floor van Spaendonck (Virtueel Platform). They were great visitors, friendly and enthusiastic. They were especially interested in our digital media services and particularly in our work for Hello Kitty. Everyone at Dream Cortex was glad to talk and exchange ideas with them.

The group spent an hour at Dream Cortex and then enjoyed a tour of the Cyberport, the IT and digital media hub in Hong Kong where Dream Cortex has its offices. Mark Clift, COO of Cyberport, was our tour guide and showed us around the Cyberport, including the Hong Kong Wireless Development Centre (HKWDC), the Cyberport Visitor Centre (which has a screening room for 360 degrees interactive film), and the Digital Media Centre (DMC), which offers video and autio post-production facilities to tenants and clients.

We received great feedback from the Dutch delegation, and they even told us that it’s been the most informative and inspiring day of their Hong Kong trip. Dream Cortex is definitely looking forward to further dialogue with the Dutch digital media industry, and to creating more business synergies and partnership opportunities between the Netherlands and Hong Kong.
