It is therefore, very satisfying that our efforts have been acknowledged by the organisers of EIBTM, with such an award.”

The award does not only recognise the great performance of our hospitable team, but also underlies HKTB’s long-standing commitment to offering top class services to visitors and upholding Hong Kong’s reputation as a welcoming destination.”
