SHAH ALAM: The three-day StarProperty.my Fair 2017 i-City edition has started with the launch of Hill10 Residence, i-City’s latest Internet of Things (IoT) ready-homes.

The launch attracted considerable interest from the public with more than 200 buyers lining up to ballot for Hill10’s 200 suites at the launch event yesterday.

The launch and ballot were kicked off by Star Media Group chief operating officer Calvin Kan, Selangor senior exco member Datuk Teng Chang Khim, I-Bhd executive chairman Tan Sri Lim Kim Hong and deputy chairman Datuk Eu Hong Chew.

The fair is held until tomorrow from 11am to 7pm at i-Gallery, i-City, Shah Alam. It will showcase I-Bhd’s developments, including the newly launched Hill10 Residence, 8Kia Peng, Parisien Tower, Hyde Tower, Liberty Tower and i-Suite.

To celebrate the grand opening of Hill10 and the fair, i-City will be organising a daily lucky draw besides giving out 1,000 theme park tickets to the visitors everyday. There will also be talks today and tomorrow.

Earlier, Teng said i-City’s launch of smart homes were in line with the state’s vision to develop Selangor as a regional e-commerce hub and a place to nurture digital start-ups. “This includes setting up Selangor Digital Creative Centre in i-City to nurture technopreneurs in Selangor,” he said.
