Hands-on business experience

The Chinese New Year Fair at Victoria Park in Causeway Bay is an annual festive event I have not managed to attend all these years. This year, a member of the Business United Society, an HKBU student interest club, told me that they would be putting up four stalls at the fair so I decided to go. It turned out to be a fun experience, albeit one that considerably lightened my wallet.

The entrepreneurial talent of our students was on full display, as a couple of them approached me before I had even properly spotted their stall and enthusiastically began showing me their products. There were a range of toys, paper cutting art, and shopping bags, some of which they had designed themselves. All the four stalls were attractively set up with students doing their best to attract customers.

Later, I chatted with Lomond Chu, President of the Business United Society, who explained that the Society had recruited members for the activity and divided the 100 shortlisted students into teams of 25 each. In November, each team studied the floor plan of the fair carefully and went to Queen Elizabeth Stadium to bid for their preferred stall. After Christmas, the Society took all the participating students on a trip to Guangzhou, where they met with wholesalers and began working on sourcing their own products. The students also designed some of the products themselves and got them manufactured.

On 3 February, the night before the opening of the fair, the students worked overnight to set up their stalls. From then on, it’s been day after day of working round-the-clock in shifts to make sure they run a profitable enterprise.

This is the fourth year the Business United Society is running the activity and last year, Lomond was a participant himself. “Working in the stalls is very exciting,” he says, reflecting on his current role as a behind-the-scenes coordinator. “But now, when I see each of our four stalls selling good products, I feel a sense of achievement too.”
