WHAT Generation T Dinner and Party WHEN June 8, 2018 WHERE The Murray
Hong Kong Tatler hosted an exclusive dinner at the Murray to honour the young entrepreneurs and innovators selected for the 2018 Generation T List. Supported by H Moser & Cie and Theory, the event gathered together the new Gen.T honourees and members of the Tatler Tribe, the panel of industry heavyweights who research and nominate individuals for inclusion on the list. During the dinner, John Wood, founder of educational charity Room to Read, gave an impassioned speech about the importance of building social purpose into businesses, and Edipresse Media Hong Kong managing director Sean Fitzpatrick announced that the Generation T platform would be sponsoring 50 children to learn to read and write for a year through Room to Read’s programme—one for every 2018 Generation T honouree.
After dinner, the 2018 Generation T inductees and the Tatler Tribe were ushered upstairs to Popinjays for the after-party, where 2016 and 2017 Gen.T honourees were waiting, eager to discover the new crop of young talent joining them on the list. The revellers enjoyed special Gin T cocktails, created in collaboration with 2016 Generation T honouree Victoria Chow of The Woods, while grooving to the bass-heavy sounds of DJ Y3LDA.
