Adding to Hong Kong's iconic skyline is an animated display on the facade of the building, illuminating the instantly recognizable shapes of the DJI drones themselves.
In celebration of the opening, there will be a series of activities and programs throughout the day including:
- Life-size DJI Phantom and Osmo mascots will kickstart the day's celebration with a street parade around the Causeway Bay area.
- An outdoor flight cage and Virtual Reality experience zone will be set up just outside the World Trade Center for people who want to experience the thrill of being in the pilot's seat.
