Disrupt the Conventional – Dr. Allan Zeman

3:00–5:30 pm
In-person Event (By invitation only) / Online webinar

Organizer: UChicago Yuen Campus in Hong Kong


Dr. Allan Zeman, GBM, GBS, JP, is renowned as the “Father of Lan Kwai Fong”, the entertainment hub in the financial center of Hong Kong. 

Dr. Zeman’s nickname “Mouse Killer” is emblazoned forever after his single-handed success competing with Hong Kong Disneyland for Ocean Park. 

Having lived in Hong Kong for 50 years, Dr. Zeman has been heavily involved in multiple Asia business cultures and many government services and community activities.  He commits himself to multiple sectors of local development and thrives on the continued economic and cultural prosperity of Hong Kong.

As the first Trailblazer in our series of programs, Dr. Zeman will share how he spots opportunities and folds them into his business empire.  He’ll also share his aspirational vision for the future of Hong Kong as Asia’s World City. 

Join our inaugural Trailblazer Forum event to be inspired by a true visionary, a real estate tycoon, an entertainment guru, a business whiz, a theme park savior, a fashion trader and a strategic advisor to the government.
