From City Airport to Airport City

Mr. Fred Lam, JP, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is transforming from a city airport into an Airport City through rigorous capacity expansion programmes such as the Three-runway System project, and introduction of functional enhancements including entertainment, retail and other consumer-oriented offerings in SKYCITY. The vision is to strengthen HKIA’s position as the leading international aviation hub in the Greater Bay Area and establish the Airport City as a destination in itself. The presentation will introduce various airport developments and the future plan for AsiaWorld-Expo as part of the Airport City strategy.

We are delighted to have secured the participation of Professor Witman Hung, JP, Principal Liaison Officer for Hong Kong, Shenzhen Qianhai Authority who will come and explain more about the expansion which now includes exhibitions as part of its scope.

The Rise of Hybrid Mode in Exhibition Industry - Post-pandemic Era and Beyond

Prof. Tina Choi, Chief Commercialization and Communications Officer, Digital Hollywood Interactive (2022.HK)

With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc across the globe, the exhibition and convention industry has been turned upside down.

This paves the way for the growth of "hybrid mode" in the exhibition industry, including aspects of digitalization and novel technologies. The key to maintaining a competitive edge is to embrace new opportunities originating from the new digital era. What are the challenges in ensuring the hybrid mode of exhibition to roll-out, and what are the demands or capabilities for market players so as to migrate to omnichannel business models in order to elevate a show's value proposition, as well as seizing opportunities in such a trying time and beyond? In this session, they will be discussed.

5:00pm

 

The National Security Law and how it relates to the Convention & Exhibition Industry

Dr. Thomas So, JP, Partner of Mayer Brown

The National Security Law took effect on 30 June 2020 and has attracted a considerable amount of attention, both locally and internationally. Please join Thomas So, Partner of Mayer Brown and a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, on recent developments, the implications for the convention and exhibition industry and the important role of the judiciary and Hong Kong’s rule of law.
