Mice Net : February 2009
news and airlines presented a united front, pointing to the significance of MICE business and the strides being taken to rise to the challenges of the current global economic climate. With funding provided over five years, MEHK appears to have been given a good chance to foster the business events sector in sustainable ways. And, while Hong Kong provides a convenient gateway to China and other emerging economies, new infrastructure within the city itself remains a strong focus for the destination to remain competitive and front-of-mind. This year the second expansion of the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre will be completed. Adding 19,400 square metres to the HKCEC, the expansion will bring total exhibition space to nearly 83,000 square metres. Due to complete construction in 2010, the top floors (102 to 118) of the International Commerce Centre tower in West Kowloon will house the Ritz Carlton Hotel, providing 300 luxury hotel rooms and facilities, 101st floor dining and prime office space below. The 100th floor Observation Deck will offer panoramic, 360 degree views of Hong Kong. Nearby, the new 393-room W Hotel recently opened for business, conveniently located above Kowloon’s Airport Express Link Station.
