What's On

Registration Closed

As one of the hardest hit sectors in Hong Kong due to ongoing travel restrictions, the Convention and Exhibition (C&E) industry is facing unprecedented challenges even as regional C&E centres such as Singapore are gradually reopening their borders. There is also the question of Hong Kong's ability to compete with its immediate neighbours such as Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Macau in hosting large scale international conventions and exhibitions once borders are reopened.

On 19 January, Harry Lin, Principal Assistant Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Commerce and Industry)1, will brief the audience on the Government's latest policy initiatives to support the local C&E industry. Join us then to learn about the new opportunities presented in the National 14th Five-Year Plan, which includes support to Hong Kong as an international trading centre, of which the C&E industry is an important part.
