Hong Kong’s sophisticated and reliable infrastructure makes the city run like clockwork. Its transport system is one of the most advanced and well-connected in the world, its international airport is consistently recognised for its performance and efficiency, and its enormous selection of venues and hotels accommodate MICE events and visitors in state-of the-art comfort.
Since 2001, Hong Kong International Airport has consistently been ranked amongst the top five of the world’s best international airports, and is the only airport in the world to have achieved the coveted five-star Skytrax rating for eight years. With the convenient in-town check-in service, free Wi-Fi, and efficient Airport Express trains that reach the downtown in just 24 minutes, every MICE event in Hong Kong begins smoothly at this major hub, setting the right tone when visitors arrive and leaving a positive final impression when they depart.
Easy access across town
Hong Kong operates one of the world’s most advanced transportation networks that allows MICE attendees to reach venues, hotels and leisure spots 24/7 with ease and convenience. Its excellent highway systems interlace with above and underground rail networks, bus and minibus routes, tram rides, taxis, and ferry services – together making no destination difficult or slow to reach.
Hong Kong’s infrastructure is constantly expanding to enhance its attractiveness as one of the world’s most convenient and capable cities for MICE events. Equipped to accommodate vessels of up to 220,000 gross tonnes, the new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal is set to become one of the city’s most desirable MICE venues, with a breathtaking skyline backdrop. Currently under construction, the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau bridge will make the nearby cities accessible by road in just 30 minutes, fostering a fast flow of people and cargo between Hong Kong and some of the Mainland China’s wealthiest consumer markets. The upcoming Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong Express Rail will also further enhance Hong Kong’s economic ties with the Mainland China, speeding up the commute to China’s populous southern cities, and eventually connecting with China’s national high-speed rail system.
Hong Kong’s over 270 hotels range from high-end luxurious to high-quality budget, and can comfortably accommodate even the biggest MICE events, with over 77,000 rooms on offer across the city. Many of Hong Kong’s key hotels are equipped with superlative meeting facilities and excellent restaurants and bars. Transport is fast and easy between hotels and venues, or MICE visitors may prefer to unwind by taking a stroll along Hong Kong’s safe streets, encountering plenty to see (and eat!) in between.
