In appreciation of the generous donation from the Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation (CTFCF), The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has named a newly established conference centre the “Henry Cheng International Conference Centre”. The naming ceremony was held today (18 March) and officiated at by Dr Cheng Kar Shun, Henry, GBM, GBS, Honorary Chairman, CTFCF, Mr Cheng Kar Shing, Peter, Chairman, CTFCF, Dr Norman N.P. Leung, GBS, JP, Chairman of the Council, CUHK, and Professor Rocky S. Tuan, Vice-Chancellor and President, CUHK. 

Dr Henry Cheng said, “I am honoured to support the establishment of the Henry Cheng International Conference Centre of CUHK. Through the convening of international academic conferences and forums, the Centre is well poised to be a hub for exchange of knowledge and ideas between China and foreign countries. Over the past few decades, my father had built a philanthropic legacy and inspired us to care for the people in need through education, health care and sustainable development projects. From generation to generation, we will continue his charitable endeavours with the same caring spirit. We are committed to making good use of our resources to promote self-reliance among the needy.”

Professor Rocky Tuan expressed his sincere gratitude to the Cheng Family and CTFCF for their staunch support over the years. He said, “Dr Cheng Yu-tung was a philanthropist who had made incredible contributions to public welfare and education. His family members have inherited his virtues of doing good deeds and founded Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation, with the objective of working with various non-profit organisations to promote sustainable community development. CUHK is very pleased to share the same philosophy with the Cheng family and to receive a generous donation from the Foundation to support the renovation of the Cheng Yu Tung Building. The first and second levels of the building have been converted into a comprehensive conference venue equipped with advanced facilities for the University to host more international academic conferences and events, so as to promote knowledge dissemination and exchange.” 

As a forward-looking comprehensive research university with a global vision, a mission to combine tradition with modernity, and to bring together China and the West, CUHK is keen to establish a university conference centre to enable Faculties, Departments and research units to organise international academic conferences on campus, thereby attracting overseas academics and scholars to visit CUHK and strengthen its global presence.

With the generous donation from CTFCF, the University renovated Levels 1 and 2 of Cheng Yu Tung Building to become a well-established venue for hosting academic conferences of international repute. It is located next to the CUHK teaching hotel, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Sha Tin, and adjacent to the University Station of the Mass Transit Railway. It is envisaged that the Henry Cheng International Conference Centre will serve as a prime location for hosting international academic conferences and enhancing CUHK’s international visibility.

The venue provides a dignified setting and is equipped with broadband and wireless internet access, audio-visual systems, and conferencing and IT equipment to provide a seamless presentation and conferencing experience. The rooms and areas provide great flexibility for hosting conferences for up to 460 scholars, with venues ranging from a large theatre for keynote speeches to rooms of different sizes for parallel and breakout sessions. Areas for conference catering and academic poster exhibition, together with Secretariat Room and VIP room set-ups for supporting of events, are also available.
