A statement from Javed Khan, chairman, HKECIA, read: "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."
It was revealed last week that L’Oréal had banned its staff from travelling to Hong Kong until today (6 October) as a result of the escalating protests in the city centre.
The HKECIA added that the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) and the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE), two of the city’s major venues, are accessible and fully operational.
Public transport links, including the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and the ferry service from Kowloon to Wan Chair, where the HKCEC is located, are running as normal.
