Best of all, it's in Hong Kong

From swanky harbour front social spots, major venue expansion, new hotel openings and even more direct airlift from the UK, Hong Kong continues to offer one of the most exciting, well-organised and memorable experiences for MICE groups.

Here’s why Hong Kong should be your destination of choice for your next event.

1. Incomparable Views

Adding to Hong Kong’s exceptional repertoire of rooftops, Harbour City Ocean Terminal was first unveiled in late 2017 and boasts a 270-degree sea view deck. The area is over 16,000 sq. ft. and can cater for up to 1,000 participants for cocktail receptions, banquets, product launches, ceremonies and more. Looking forward, Rosewood Hong Kong’s prime waterfront location is one of the most anticipated new hotel openings, featuring a 27-storey tower with 398 guestrooms, affording spectacular views of the city and a wealth of leisure outlets, due to open in autumn 2018. 

2. Bright Lights, Compact Sights

Morning meetings can be easily followed by afternoon hikes or heritage tours due to Hong Kong’s compact variety and transport links. Be at the beach or climbing the summit of one of Hong Kong’s hillsides in less time than it takes to travel across London. Away from the vertiginous skyscrapers, Hong Kong is comprised of 260 islands and islets, with 40% of territory protected by country parks - representing one of the highest proportions in the world. 

3. Safety First

Highly acclaimed as one of the world’s safest capitals, The Economist’s 2017 Safe Cities Index ranked Hong Kong within its top 10. Last year also saw Hong Kong retain its coveted title as the world’s most visited city for the eighth consecutive year, according to a report from Euromonitor International. With a destination appeal growing ever stronger, MICE visitors can continuously enjoy peace of mind.

4. Beat the Jetlag

With 70 direct flights weekly out of the UK, there’s a flight time to suit all itineraries. Cathay Pacific will be launching 4 direct flights from Dublin in June. This adds to a bumper schedule departing from Manchester, London Gatwick and London Heathrow by Hong Kong’s national carrier, as well as airlift from British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Hong Kong travel remains visa free for UK and Irish residents.  


5. Hong Kong Rewards Programme

MICE groups will enjoy a wealth of privileges to enhance the delegates’ experience through Meetings & Exhibitions Hong Kong (MEHK), including free entry, food and drink at the Happy Valley Racecourse on Wednesdays (20 delegates +), free cocktail reception at your hotel (50 delegates +) or a free meal at Ocean Park Hong Kong (20+ delegates). View the full rewards programme.
