The One Club Greater China office was founded in 2000, hosting a series of youth events in China, and added The One Show Greater China Awards and related Creative Week program seven years ago. In the past 20 years, the team has focused on promoting creativity in the region, and greater communications between Greater China and the global industry. This expanded focus prompted the office to rebrand this year as The One Club Asia.
