Tong Chong Street

Tong Chong Street, an iconic street on the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, epitomizes the spirit of inheriting the past to inspire the future. The name "Tong Chong" in Chinese means "sugar factory". In the early 20th century, Tong Chong Street was home to the largest and most sophisticated sugar refinery east of the Suez Canal. Today, Tong Chong Street has evolved into a vibrant hub for technology, media, art and design.

In the summer of 2019, a group of young leaders in Hong Kong came together to brainstorm and decided to launch the new TEDxTongChongSt initiative with a mission to bring together an extraordinary community of thought leaders, disrupters and change makers across multiple disciplines to explore the power of ideas and shed some light on the future of our work, life, society and the world.

The first TEDxTongChongStreet event “Hacking the Future” was successfully held at Facebook Hong Kong Office on November 19,2019. The second TEDx event “Countdown. Action. Now.” on October 15, 2020 was produced by the TEDxTongChongSt team and it was the first digital native TEDxTongChongSt event through livestreaming on Facebook. This year we focus on “Decoding Disruption”, which is scheduled for release on December 17, featuring four disrupters from diverse background and sectors.
