In the opening of the Brand Design Awards presentation ceremony, Dr. Lo Kam Wing, BBS, JP, Honorary Chairman of the Brand Development Council, emphasized the significance of design, highlighting that exceptional brand design goes beyond mere aesthetics. Dr. Lo emphasized that it has the power to empower a company, product, or service to tell a captivating story and foster lasting connections.

As part of the exciting developments, the Brand Design Awards introduced the highly coveted "Best of the Best" awards. These awards recognize exceptional entries based on a combination of the initial online judging phase, where the brands' submissions were evaluated, and the onsite presentation phase, where the shortlisted brands had the opportunity to present their case in person.
