Gateway to Mainland China

There’s no better base to connect with the Mainland’s high-growth markets than Hong Kong. From its fortuitous location at China’s southern tip, to its robust economic relationship as China's most important international business city, its wealth of transport connections that foster a constant flow of business activity, and Hong Kong’s invaluable economic advantages, every MICE event held in Hong Kong makes engaging with the Mainland an efficient and effortless process.

Unlimited market potential

As a Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong enjoys a highly active and cooperative business relationship with the Mainland. It is the country’s leading conduit for foreign investment and its primary offshore capital-raising centre. Leveraging our prime location, a wealth of talents and international connectivity, Hong Kong serves as an international promotion stage to grasp opportunities arising from the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, which is with over 86 million people and a US$1.6 trillion GDP.

Simple yet sophisticated business environment

Hong Kong’s zero export tariff, free flow of information, sophisticated political system, strict intellectual property legislation, and network of bicultural business professionals, are just some of the many reasons why MICE organisers prefer Hong Kong for its easy and unparalleled access to the Mainland’s immense markets. Hong Kong is not only the perfect base for businesses to enter the Chinese market, but its ‘East meets West’ business culture provides an ideal platform for Chinese enterprises to expand into the international community.

Close and connected

Hundreds of flights take off every week between Hong Kong and the Mainland’s key cities, and MICE visitors can access the Greater Bay Area’s prosperous market easier than ever before via the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macao Bridge. The "Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong" High-Speed Rail (Hong Kong Section) also speeds up the commute to and from some of the Mainland’s biggest consumer cities. As the route connects the national high-speed rail network, it merely puts Hong Kong within a five-hour train ride from Wuhan, eight-hour from Shanghai, and nine-hour from Beijing.

Visa-free convenience

Hong Kong’s accessible visa system invites foreign visitors based in the city to visit Guangdong province – China’s largest provincial economy – for up to six days (144 hours). Visitors in a group, with a minimum of two to a maximum of 40 persons, can travel to and stay for a maximum of 144 hours via entry ports in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen, Zhaoqing, Huizhou, and Shantou.
