Tourism factory has become a booming trend in the tourism industry.

Such cooperation allows students to use their innovative thinking to desigh cultural and creative products, packaging, DIY programs, and Line stickers associated with the tourism factories. It is hoped that such creations would spark commercialization from the factories, and would also provide factories the opportunity to recruit the design talents they needed. This exhibition is an opportune platform for students to showcase their talents, while allowing factories to scout for talents and select creations.
The exhibition has 11 themes, such as “Gel a friend,” which targets hydrogel products. Students incorporate lively characters into hydrogel daily products to display the broad range of use of hydrogel in everyday life.
