Description

The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) opened in November 1988, after which Hong Kong's exhibition industry experienced a period of rapid growth enabling Hong Kong to establish its position as Asia's trade fair capital and a premier international convention and meeting location. The HKCEC, located on the magnificent and renowned Victoria Harbour, is owned by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (TDC) and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. The TDC is entrusted by Government to be responsible for the Centre's development, design and management. The TDC has contracted with Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited (HML) for management and operation of the Centre. HML is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NWS Holdings Ltd (Stock Code: 0659 HK). The mission of HML, with a staff team of over 850, is to position the HKCEC as the best exhibition and convention centre in Asia internationally renowned for excellence and hosting the world's greatest events, supported by innovative and creative operating techniques. Having experienced escalating demand from its time of opening, the HKCEC was expanded in June 1997 over doubling its prime function space. The expanded venue further strengthened Hong Kong's leading position as Asia's trade fair hub and assuring that Hong Kong could successfully meet the growing demand for space into the 21st century. The total project cost of the expansion which opened in 1997 was HK$4.8 billion (US$620 million, in 1997 dollars) including site reclamation which began in June 1994. The cost of the HKCEC at opening in 1988 was approximately HK$1.6 billion (US$207 million, in 1986 dollars), not including land cost. The HKCEC presently totals 221,968 sq m (2.39 million sq ft) with over 70,000 sq m (757,758 sq ft) of rentable function space. With the growing demand of exhibition space from HKCEC's current clients and potential new clients, HKCEC's second expansion began in July 2006. Upon the completion in 2009, the expansion will add 19,400 sq m to the HKCEC bringing total exhibition space to nearly 83,000 sq m and total rentable function space close to 90,000 sq m.
