Hong Kong Government Not Looking to Expand Venue

January 22, 2013

According to Hong Kong’s Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Greg So Kam-leung, the special administrative region’s government has no current plans to expand the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

Instead, the government is calling for more co-operation between the HKCEC and the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE), Hong Kong’s other international exhibition venue which opened in 2005 with 70,000 m2 of rentable space. At present, the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, organised by UBM Asia, is the only exhibition that adopts a “one show, two venues” model.

Greg So said, “Our first priority will be encouraging co-operation between the two venues so we can better use our resources. We will also encourage exhibitors to hold their shows during non-peak seasons. ”
