The opening ceremony was organized by Innovative Entrepreneur Association. It was held at HKTDC’s Entrepreneur Day on 13 May 2016. The ceremony was part of the program of the cross matching project funded by CreateHK of HKSAR. The program provided platforms for local designers to explore business opportunities, such as in partnership with THE WAVE to provide venues for start-up designers to retail their products; to encourage Hong Kong designers to develop the China market through participating in shows in the South China region. The Chairman of the Design Council of Hong Kong Mr. Eric Yim, and executive committee member Mr. Alan Cheung have been and still are mentors for young designers for the last five years of the program. Some of the young designer mentees have also become D-Mark holders.
Design Council of Hong Kong has been and still is the supporting organization for the event. Mr. Eric Yim was invited as VIP guest at the opening ceremony. At the ceremony, awards were presented to different designers for their contribution to the cross matching program in the present and in the past.
