会展中心再度荣获“亚洲最佳会议展览中心”

 

(2007年1月10日)香港会议展览中心 (以下简称「会展中心」) 在〈亚太会议展览及奖励旅游〉杂志 (CEI Asia Pacific) 最近发表的2007读者调查中,再一次获选为「亚洲最佳会议展览中心」。调查结果于12月/1月份出版的〈亚太会议展览及奖励旅游〉中宣布。

这是该杂志第五次举办同类型的读者调查,会展中心连续五次在调查中获得最高票数,被选为最佳会议展览中心。调查于2006年底举行,邀请读者选出区内每个界别中他们认为表现超卓的同业,包括会议展览设施、酒店和航空公司等。

香港会议展览中心(管理)有限公司董事总经理王礼仕先生称:”会展中心上下员工对于这个令人鼓舞的调查结果,深感兴奋,因为参与调查的被访者均是展览及会议业内的资深专业人士,当中大部份都拥有在亚洲区内不同地方举办会议、展览和大型活动的丰富经验。尽管亚太区新落成的展览中心比比皆是,而区内的展览中心亦相继进行扩建,然而,会展中心在调查中连续五次稳占首位,一再肯定会展中心的卓越服务水平傲视同侪,亦引证了中心多年来的非凡声誉。”

随着会展中心现有的大型展览规模日益壮大,而未来的展览空间需求亦会增加,会展中心于2006年7月展开了第二次扩建工程,提供更多展览空间以满足客户的需求,工程预计于2009年初完成,扩建后将可为会展中心增添19,400平方米的展览空间,使其可租用的总展览面积达至近90,000平方米。会展中心在这个时刻获选为「亚洲最佳会议展览中心」,其领导地位得到用家认同,是一个莫大的鼓舞。

会展中心过去于〈亚太会议展览及奖励旅游〉杂志的调查中被读者选为:
2001年「亚太区最佳展览中心」
2002年「亚洲最佳展览中心」
2005年「亚太区最佳会议展览中心」
2006年「亚太区最佳会议中心」

〈亚太会议展览及奖励旅游〉杂志同时列出亚太区内十个最佳专为会议展览而建的设施,会展中心亦位列榜首。

香港会议展览中心由香港会议展览中心(管理)有限公司(简称「会展管理公司」)管理及经营。会展管理公司乃新创建集团有限公司(股份代号:0659)的成员。

 

HKCEC voted “Best Convention and Exhibition Centre in Asia”

 

(Hong Kong, 5 January 2007) The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) has been voted the “Best Convention and Exhibition Centre in Asia” in the newly released 2007 industry Reader’s Choice Awards’ survey, conducted by CEI Asia Pacific, a leading convention, exhibition and incentive industry publication. Survey results were released in the December-January issue of the trade magazine.

This is the 5th consecutive readers’ survey conducted by CEI Asia Pacific in which the HKCEC has been recognised as the top venue in its category.

Mr Cliff Wallace, Managing Director of Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited (HML), said, “We are most pleased that the HKCEC has received such a prestigious recognition by the magazine’s readers who are acknowledged industry executives, many who have used and worked with exhibitions and other major events held in venues throughout Asia.  The survey affirms the prestigious reputation and quality of the HKCEC and its service levels, even considering the increasing competition from new and expanding venues in the region. The survey results are also very gratifying since our second expansion is now underway to meet growing demand. ”

To accommodate the demand for more space by the HKCEC’s current major exhibition organisers and projected growing demand for additional exhibition space into the future, the construction of HKCEC’s second expansion started in July 2006 and is scheduled for completion in early 2009. The expansion will add 19,400 square metres of exhibition space and bring the total rentable function space to 90,000 square metres.

The top ten (10) Best Purpose-Built Centres in Asia were also named in the magazine. In addition to HKCEC's top rating; Suntec Singapore, Singapore Expo, Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Shanghai New International Expo Centre and AsiaWorld-Expo were also included.

Other CEI Asia Pacific Readers’ Choice Awards previously presented to the HKCEC were:
Asia Pacific’s Top Exhibition Centre, 2001
Best Exhibition Centre in Asia, 2002
Best Conference and Exhibition Centre in Asia Pacific, 2005
Best Convention Centre in Asia Pacific, 2006

The HKCEC is managed and operated by HML, a private professional management company and wholly-owned subsidiary of NWS Holdings Limited (Stock code: 0659.HK).
