AsiaWorld-Expo Wins the First Runner-up of “Best Convention and Exhibition Centre” in Asia

With excellent business performance and branding effect, AsiaWorld-Expo was named the first runner-up of “Best Convention and Exhibition Centre” in Asia at the renowned CEI Asia Industry Awards.  Organized by prominent MICE publication CEI Asia magazine, the awards are based on votes and feedback by professionals and readers from the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) industry worldwide.

“We are very honoured to have won this award - first runner-up of the ‘Best Convention and Exhibition Centre in Asia’ Awards.  This recognition by the industry of AsiaWorld-Expo from second runner-up last year to first runner-up this year, despite keen competition in the region, is a boost of confidence for our venue team who has been in operation for just eight years.  I wish to thank all the stakeholders in the industry for their continuous support.  In particular, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the HKSAR Government and the Hong Kong Tourism Board for their great efforts in facilitating the development of our MICE industry and enhancing the co-operation between the two venues over the past year.  An upcoming jewellery show in March 2014 is another good example of industry collaborations, following the success of the world’s largest jewellery show held in September every year,” said Mr. Allen Ha, Chief Executive Officer of AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited.
