Is it over already?
Although HxGN LIVE Hong Kong has come to a close, the end of this conference marks the beginning of impactful, game-changing thought for Hexagon and its customers.
With so many of our customers based in the Asia-Pacific region, hosting HxGN LIVE in Hong Kong presented the perfect opportunity for attendees to experience an event tailored to the particular needs of their markets and business culture and the opportunity to network with industry professionals from around the world.
We are thrilled to have hosted more than 3,000 attendees from all over the globe, who all came together with one goal in mind: to create smart change in a constantly changing world.
Conference activities mirrored Hexagon’s core principle of shaping smart change: shape matters. The conference exemplified the shape of change, the shape of progress and the shape of things to come. Ola Rollén said it best: “The world we live in is more dynamic and complex than ever before. Challenges and opportunities are taking shape and changing constantly.”
HxGN LIVE Hong Kong started off Wednesday with an opening keynote from Ola Rollén, followed by Li Hongquan, vice president of Hexagon and president of Hexagon China, who shared a first-hand account of how Hexagon is unleashing innovation and shaping smart change in China. We also heard keynotes from Geospatial, Geosystems, Metrology/Manufacturing, Process, Power & Marine and Synergy.
Thursday’s events included the Metrology/Manufacturing Automation and Industry 4.0 Summit, in addition to the gala awards banquet: a special evening event that honors our partners. The event included the Hexagon Shaping Change Recognition Programme, which recognises customer excellence in visionary practices, global leadership, partnership and innovation.
After three days of thought-provoking breakout sessions, hands-on demos in The Zone and unlimited networking opportunities, we hope you leave Hong Kong with plenty of LinkedIn invites, business cards and fresh ideas.
We want to thank all those who attended HxGN LIVE Hong Kong. This new experience brought together the best minds from around the world and provided them new ways to innovate, motivate and create smart change.

HxGN LIVE Hong Kong may have come to a close, but important work continues – work that will ultimately make the world a better place. And that’s shaping smart change.
