Hong Kong’s leading entertainment and events venue welcomes the world’s top performers AsiaWorld-Arena sets the standard for world-class spectaculars in Hong Kong

AsiaWorld-Arena is taking the lead as a dynamic new venue for entertainment with state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure that are unique in Hong Kong.  In the space of just three years, AsiaWorld-Arena has welcomed over 200 big-name international and local superstars in a wide variety of events, including high-profile pop concerts, sporting events, family entertainment shows, theatrical performances, and music awards. “For event organisers, AsiaWorld-Arena offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to stage events of the highest standard and quality,” said Stuart Wang, Chief Commercial Officer, AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited.  “The venue offers a truly world-class experience, with customer-oriented support and services that understand the complex needs of today’s top-billing international mega shows.” Widely acclaimed as music lovers’ favourite venue, AsiaWorld-Arena has consistently received positive feedback from organisers, performers and audiences.  Its flexible configurations can effortlessly accommodate even the most sophisticated stage production demands, while the option of taking a large or small space allows the venue to meet each organiser’s unique needs.  This unparalleled infrastructure is further complemented with an intelligent design that brings everything audiences need under one roof, from cloakrooms, lockers and sitting areas, to various kinds of catering, and spacious queuing areas for merchandising. For event organisers, AsiaWorld-Arena offers a personalised, one-stop service that is designed to take the hassle out of event planning.  A simple and highly flexible booking procedure is complemented with a competitive rate and a flexible, demountable seating system.  This ensures that events enjoy more upside potential than at any other venue in Hong Kong – a win-win combination for organisers and promoters.  Crucially, AsiaWorld-Arena is much more than a venue provider; the venue team is fully geared up to provide a total solution package. As such, it values its relationships with clients and treats them as strategic business partners. Now featuring enhanced transportation links, AsiaWorld-Arena offers convenient connections to all parts of Hong Kong for audience members.  Thanks to a dedicated, in-venue MTR station, the Airport Express is one of the fastest and most comfortable ways to reach the venue.  Spectators can enjoy an exclusive special fare of just HK$48 for a same-day-return trip on the Airport Express, which whisks passengers direct from Hong Kong Island to AsiaWorld-Expo in just 28 minutes.  Two dedicated express non-stop bus services – X48 from Tai Wai and X21 from Tsim Sha Tsui – also serve the needs of passengers in the New Territories and Kowloon, and ensure that a great night out is within easy reach of people in all areas.  “Disney On Ice” recently chose AsiaWorld-Arena for its sell-out shows after a five-year absence from Hong Kong, which were a massive hit with children and adults alike.  Other upcoming concerts this spring include the classic rock legendary Rod Stewart (7 March), rising star Duffy (20 March), top Japanese singer Ryuichi Kawamura (22 March) and the world's best-selling soprano Sarah Brightman (1 April). In addition to these top international stars, Brit music sensations Coldplay (25 March) and Oasis (7 April) will each soon perform at AsiaWorld-Arena for the second time in the space of just three years.  The return of these hugely successful groups is powerful confirmation that AsiaWorld-Arena has what it takes to be a unique, world-class stage for today’s top performers. On 4-5 April 2009, AsiaWorld-Expo will also host the adrenaline-pumping Asia-Motorsport Show 2009, featuring a drifting performance by the famous Takahiro Ueno and Kazuyoshi Okamura, as well as motorbike demonstrations, X-Games, and an exhibition of auto parts and accessories in the outdoor area. “It’s thrilling to see how the international event community has responded to AsiaWorld-Arena,” added Stuart.  “As Hong Kong’s foremost entertainment and events venue, we’re proud to continue leading the market by providing everything the world’s top entertainers need.” Concert tickets can be purchased via HK Ticketing and Tom Lee outlets, online at www.hkticketing.com or by calling 31 288 288.
