Hong Kong trade exhibitions unaffected by protest movement

October 7, 2014 MICE No Comments Email Email

The Hong Kong Exhibition & Convention Industry Association (HKECIA) wishes to confirm to all participants, buyers and exhibitors, attending autumn trade exhibitions in Hong Kong that events are running smoothly and without interruption.

Although there are protests in few locations, up until the time of this announcement both of the two major venues Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) and AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) are accessible and fully operational.  Public transport links via Mass Transit Railway (MTR), and the ferry service from Kowloon to Wan Chai, where the HKCEC is located, are running as normal.  Some bus services are affected since specific traffic arrangements have been implemented in various locations.

HKECIA Chairman Mr Javed Khan stated “At this time we are seeing that trade fairs in Hong Kong are running without incident or interruption.  Our advice to participants in upcoming conferences and exhibitions is that Hong Kong is definitely still open for business and safe to travel.  We have seen that trade shows which have successfully completed last week or are scheduled this week in Hong Kong have, aside from some minor travel disruption, continued as normal.”

Further statements updating exhibition participants will be issued by the HKECIA should the current situation changes.
