Hong Kong: three cultural-themed venues for events

A creative hub for local design talent, a maritime museum and city trams provide three cultural backdrops for events and incentives in Hong Kong.

PMQ: The former, historic Police Married Quarters (PMQ) on Hollywood Road in Central, dating back to 1951, was transformed last year into a modern, creative and culinary arts hub. The venue offers 1,600 sqm of event space that can be used for major installations and large events, with purpose-built areas available for short-term pop-up initiatives and exhibitions. The complex has six food and beverage outlets that can be used for catering for events.

Hong Kong Maritime Museum: The museum moved to a new location, Central ferry pier 8, in 2013, facing Hong Kong’s harbour. It houses more than 5,000 artefacts that celebrate Hong Kong’s rich history as a maritime port. The entire venue can be used for events or small sections can be privatised. The venue is suited to a range of events, including cocktail parties, product launches, dinners and seminars. 

Hong Kong Trams: The network of Hong Kong Trams has run through the city for more than 100 years. For a night-time journey with views over Hong Kong, event planners can hire either an antique double-decker with its open roof on the top level or a regular tram, which travels from the historic Western District and downtown business centre, through to the Causeway Bay shopping hub. The trams cater for between 25 to 35 guests.
