After nine months of preparation, the team at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited (HML) took pride in the successful conclusion of the celebrations of the 20thanniversary of Hong Kong’s Return to the Motherland, and the Inauguration of the Fifth Term Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, attended by President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China.    

Professional security measures were implemented to ensure the smooth and safe operation of the celebration activities, especially for the Inauguration of the Fifth Term Government of the HKSAR held on 1 July.  The new Chief Executive and all Principal Officials took oath in the presence of PRC President Xi Jinping and 2,000 top community and business leaders, in the Grand Hall of the HKCEC.

HML is proud to have served the historic 1997 handover ceremony when Hong Kong returned to Chinese sovereignty.  With proven track record serving world-class events since then, the 950 member HML team again embraced challenges associated with extensive logistics and hospitality requirements. 

During the three days before and on 1 July, over 33,000 meals were served and more than 10,000 chairs were arranged for attending guests, HML and Government staff members, contractors, as well as Hong Kong’s top performing artists at the Grand Variety Show held in Hall 5BC of the HKCEC.

Together with an additional 1,500 temporary supporting staff, HML provided professional support to the Hong Kong Government, including the Police, to ensure efficient, safe and comfortable setting for the Grand Variety Show, Flag Raising and Inaugural Ceremonies, fireworks display dinners and many related meetings during the three days on and before 1 July 2017.
