Following a series of physical trade and consumer exhibitions in October, another four tradefairs were held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) in the period, 11-13 November 2020.
The shows were Restaurant & Bar Hong Kong X Gourmet Asia 2020, Natural & Organic Asia 2020, Build4Asia 2020, and Retail Asia Conference and Expo 2020.
Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited (HML) had worked with the organiser of all four shows, Informa Markets, to reschedule the exhibitions and to implement preventive measures to enable face-to-face networking for attendees.
Monica Lee-Müller, HML’s managing director, said: “We highly appreciate organisers’ support and confidence in the HML team to open the many tradefairs at the HKCEC even without the participation of overseas exhibitors and buyers under the travel restriction. HML is committed to provide our world-class services, to create and recreate events, being flexible in scheduling and offering event organisers and attendees a safe, hygienic and comfortable environment to make connection and conduct business. We are excited to see the launch of the bilateral Air Travel Bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong on 22 November, and we hope it will soon be extended to cover Mainland China and other countries to restart the Hong Kong exhibition industry."
Around 25 exhibitions, other corporate events and banquets have been confirmed at the HKCEC from October to December 2020. With the Hong Kong Government’s Convention and Exhibition Industry Subsidy Scheme, which has just been extended until end of 2021, more exhibitions and international conferences are expected in the coming months.
