Hong Kong Sweeps Awards at CEI Readers’ Choice Celebrating Excellence in Business Events

Yet another successful year comes to a close for Hong Kong, with dominating wins in both the ‘Best Convention and Exhibition Centre’ and ‘Hotel and Resort for Business Events’ categories. And now, MEHK’s consecutive win in the ‘Best Convention Bureau, Asia Pacific’ category of CEI Asia’s annual Readers’ Choice 2018 awards continues to pave a strong year ahead.

For more than 15 years, CEI’s annual industry survey has showcased the best in business events, as chosen by readers who travel extensively. This year, the city has seen dominating wins in two out of five award categories, once again proving its unparalleled position as a prime MICE destination with a service culture best suited for the MICE segment.

“In the first three quarters of 2017, there has been a 5 per cent growth in overnight MICE arrivals, and a 7.6 per cent year-on-year growth in arrivals from China. These awards are a testament that Hong Kong is a destination that offers the best in both business and pleasure, with a convention bureau and trade partners who always roll up their sleeves to offer top-notch consultation and services and never settle for less.” Kenneth Wong, General Manager, MICE and Cruise Division, Hong Kong Tourism Board.
