AsiaWorld-Expo is delighted to launch its newly renovated Hall 2 as AsiaWorld-Summit, Hong Kong’s newest and largest indoor conference and banqueting venue. As an integral part of the AsiaWorld-Expo complex, the fully carpeted AsiaWorld-Summit combines state-of-the-art infrastructure and logistics services with a team of award-winning chefs to meet the needs of even the most sophisticated business and social events. Whether it’s an event for 700 or up to 5,000, the consummate expertise of AsiaWorld-Summit ensures that organisers and event participants enjoy an impeccable, hassle-free experience.
AsiaWorld-Summit is already proving that it has the world-class facilities and expertise to host large-scale conferences and banquets. Today, the venue welcomes some 1,200 delegates from Japan who are attending the DIANA Co. Ltd. incentive and conference event. This high-profile occasion features a lavish award ceremony, conference and seminar and gala dinner , all hosted at AsiaWorld-Summit, and all drawing on the acclaimed culinary and event planning expertise of AsiaWorld-Expo. To complete the experience, AsiaWorld-Summit has collaborated with the Hong Kong Tourism Board to arrange for a stunning performance of traditional lion dance for all 1,200 delegates to experience the unique culture of the modern East-meets-West Hong Kong.
“AsiaWorld-Summit was the perfect choice for our event,” remarked Mr Masaki Homma, President, DIANA Co.

From the quality of the facilities, and the comprehensive range of services and support, through to the excellent catering, we were thrilled to have chosen this truly world-class venue.”
Looking ahead, AsiaWorld-Summit will be welcoming many more high-profile events in 2009. These include the return of the world’s biggest and most important gathering of the global freight forwarding industry, Sino-International Freight Forwarders Conference, which comprises a conference, exhibition, extensive F&B services and a full gala dinner for thousands of delegates from around the world. Other noteworthy events include the Global Mayors Forum in September 2009.
