On 16 Oct, HKEIA arranged a visit for members to the Hong Kong Science Park and visited two institutions, NAMI & Huawei in the morning. After that AEF members also had a meeting to evaluate this year event and discuss the upcoming 2015 AEF venue.

Members comment that this year HKEIA had held the event successfully and AEF award should be carried forward to next year event. Japan members include JEITA, CIAJ and JEMA showed interest to organize AEF in 2015 October during the CEATEC. Members were worried about the time was too close to the WEF organizing in Taiwan in 2015 and after discussion members finally agreed that TEEMA of Taiwan would be the host of 2015 and Japan be the venue of AEF in 2016. Period will be in October.

It was important to emphasis that AEF was not in competition with WEF, participants of AEF were encouraged to join WEF. In fact the two forums should be complementary to each other. Members also suggested in future AEF could be organized out of Asian Region, such as Germany to explore further cooperation

Site seeing of the Peak has been arranged for members in the afternoon.
