The VTC booth was located in the central part of the Science Park near the Charles K. Kao Auditorium where the majority of visitors passed by. The location was close to the Reception Counter of the InnoCarnival 2016 and the gathering points of guided tours too. The total area of the VTC booth was increased to 90 sqm as compared to 81 sqm in the InnoCarnival 2015.
The VTC InnoCarnival 2016 booth was rated the 1st runner up in the “My Favorite Booth Voting 2016” organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission.
The VTC booth was constructed to convey a resemblance to a residential apartment. The exhibition items were integrated harmoniously and naturally in the apartment to demonstrate how technology and innovation could be applied to a household environment for enhancing the quality of life. The VTC booth consisted of two distinct parts – the indoor booth and the outdoor booth. The indoor booth was composed of three different zones: the bedroom, the kitchen and the balcony, each with a unique design style. The outdoor booth showed a resemblance to a garage where robots and the solar energy vehicle SOPHIE V were placed.
