Have you ever dreamed of creating and publishing your own book? Join the tour to Asia One Printing Limited to discover how a truly integrated communications company can help you fulfill this dream easily, from conception to completion, in this one-stop shop.

Founded in 1979 with 12 staff in an office-cum-factory space of 7000 square feet, Asia One has expanded and presently employs 300 staff in facilities that include a 14-storey building. It is one of the most active independent art publishers in Hong Kong with over 12 publications per year and is recognized highly as a top-notch printing and publishing company by both clients and peers. Asia One keenly supports visual arts in the community and is the sponsor of the Museum Society’s bi-monthly newsletter, MVSEnews, and annual reports for many years.

Peter Lau is the Managing Director of Asia One Communication Group that consists of nine subsidiary companies. He will give a brief overview of the individual businesses and demonstrate how each unit contributes to a successful publishing project.

We shall come to appreciate the quality and value of fine books. Afterward, there will be an option to enjoy lunch with Peter at Tapeo, a sumptuous Spanish restaurant nearby.
