Once again we are celebrating the International Archives Day, a global event designated by the International Council on Archives (ICA), to raise awareness of the value of archives, and offer the community the opportunity to meet with archivists from across the professional sector in Hong Kong. 

This year the global theme of the day is ‘Archives: Governance, Memory and Heritage’.

Exhibitors from a wide range of institutions will be participating, with archivists and records professionals on hand to answer your questions; and a series of talks exploring topics from across this fascinating field will also be held over the course of the day.
