Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) is now ready to start operating and running events.

With preventive measures in place, HKCEC held the city’s first exhibition since the pandemic – the 98th Hong Kong Wedding Fair, which is a three-day local consumer exhibition. The event had been rescheduled from February and successfully took place from May 22-24.

Managing director, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre Management Limited (HML), Monica Lee-Müller enthused: “HML is all set to welcome events back to the HKCEC. Health, safety and well-being of staff members and visitors have always been our top priority. The HML team has been working closely with organisers to reschedule events impacted by the pandemic, and to implement necessary measures to address health and hygiene concerns. With the success of the Hong Kong Wedding Fair, we can demonstrate our commitment of providing professional services and customer care for event organisers and attendees.”

The HML team worked closely with Hong Kong Wedding Fair’s organiser to implement special preventive measures in event arrangements, such as floor plan design, queuing logistics, F&B provisions and much more.

All visitors, exhibitors, contractors and HML staff members were required to wear face masks and had their temperatures screened before entering HKCEC, while social distancing was implemented at fair ticket counters, F&B outlets, washrooms and any place where queues were expected.

Adding to this, sanitation and disinfection were carried out by HML staff regularly to ensure the highest levels of hygiene in the venue.
