AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited welcomes HKTB’s concessionary measures for travel and related partners

AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited warmly welcomes the positive measures newly launched by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) for trade partners to join HKTB’s promotions with effect from 1 January 2009, which aim to help lessen their marketing expenses.
“In times of economic downturn, HKTB’s pivotal role to support the conventions and exhibitions industry could not be more important.  The scheme will benefit the industry to launch promotions in the Mainland and overseas, as well as to tap into various emerging markets,” said Allen Ha, Chief Executive Officer, AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited.

“AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited will leverage on these initiatives to continue to actively promote our services as well as Hong Kong's competitive advantages in the Mainland and overseas markets with a view to attracting more quality international MICE events to Hong Kong,” added Mr Ha.
