Soho House HK

We’re so excited to be back!

Service Design Hong Kong (SDHK) is making a grand return on November 23-24, 2023, as our city embraces global reconnection. As Asia's premier two-day Service Design event, SDHK brings together a diverse network of innovators, change-makers, and design enthusiasts committed to leveraging design techniques for regional and global betterment.

Since its inauguration in 2016, SDHK has united and inspired countless attendees through immersive design experiences. This year, we're thrilled to be back with a focus on both inspiration and hands-on Service Design, aligning with our origins.

As always, we're proud to be a Satellite Event for BODW City Programme (CityProg) 2023, cementing our status as a premier gathering in the design calendar.

Stephanie Lukito speaking on stage during Day 1 of SDHK 2019, with a slide titled "How might we design a holistic, user-centric, and easy-to-use ecosystem?"

2023 Theme

This year, we want to pay homage to our proud legacy of theming each year focusing on how we can do good for people and planet. Additionally, as part of our proud partnership with Hong Kong Design Centre and BODW CityProg, and fitting with the theme of BODW CityProg 2023 – “Game Changers” with a focus on “Circular Design”, our SDHK theme is “Design for GOOD for design”. 

Our society has experienced huge changes in the last couple of years with Covid, AI, climate emergencies and more, so NOW (more than ever) is the time that we need to “do good” in whatever way we can. How might we find the good practices and approaches that will make us more effective and create a positive impact?

Good for design

Design for good

During Day 1, we will find inspiration in Service Design trends and case studies. We will hear from a diverse mix of practitioners of tools and methods that they have used for good to create positive change in society, and the environment.

During Day 2, we will apply Day 1 learnings and leverage the methods and tools to our circular people or planet challenges. As design thinkers, we want to grow our craft and practice with new tools, methods, techniques to make service design better, to create a better way of working to create impact and do more good through design.
