Christopher Dillon
Principal, Dillon Communications Ltd.

Christopher Dillon is an author, investor and entrepreneur who has lived in Hong Kong since 1992. He has rented, bought and renovated commercial, residential and industrial property and has also been a commercial landlord. His various experiences inspired his books, Landed: The expatriate′s guide to buying and renovating property in Hong Kong and Landed: The guide to buying property in Japan. He is now writing a book about real estate in China.

In April 2005, Christopher bought half a floor in an industrial building in Hong Kong's Wong Chuk Hang district. In the months that followed, he converted the 3,500-square-foot derelict steam laundry into Dillon Studios, a rental studio for professional photographers and filmmakers. In his presentation, Christopher will outline the process of locating, buying and renovating the studio; explain what it was like to share a building with a meat wholesaler; and describe his decision to sell the facility in the summer of 2010.
