Over the 25 years, HML has served over 42,000 events and more than 80 million visitors. These events have contributed significant economic benefits to Hong Kong by not only nourishing Hong Kong’s event industry, but also generating beneficial spin-offs for the tourism, transportation, food and beverage and entertainment industries.” In celebration of HKCEC’s 25th anniversary, HML has produced a designated mini-website http://www.hkcec-25th-anniversary.com/en/ featuring milestones of the HKCEC, and celebration activities for HML staff members, clients and partners, as well as the general public of Hong Kong, etc. HML’s corporate video “Asia’s Best Hong Kong’s Pride” was premiered during the cocktail reception to highlight the professionalism, commitment and vision of HML as the professional private management company of the HKCEC.

Being named ‘Asia’s Best Convention and Exhibition Centre’ in the CEI Industry Survey for the 11th time is the most meaningful gift for HKCEC’s 25th birthday.
