General view of AsiaWorld–Expo

The AsiaWorld–Expo is one of the two major convention and exhibition facilities in Hong Kong along with Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. It was opened on 21 December 2005 by Donald Tsang, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, and it is operated by AsiaWorld–Expo Management Limited. It is located on Chek Lap Kok island, next to Hong Kong International Airport.


At a construction cost of HK$2.35 billion, AsiaWorld–Expo offers over 70,000 square metres of rentable space with 10 ground-level and column-free halls, including the AsiaWorld–Arena – the biggest purpose-built indoor seated entertainment arena in Hong Kong with a maximum capacity of 14,000; the AsiaWorld–Summit – Hong Kong's largest indoor conference and banquet venue that seats 700 to 5,000 persons; the Runway 11 – the venue's latest conference and function hall for 500 to 3,800 guests. AsiaWorld–Expo is Asia's only column-free, ground-level exhibition, convention and events venue which is fully integrated with one of the world's best airports, Hong Kong International Airport.[2] The complex is located at the centre of an extensive and efficient air, land, and marine transport network which connects Hong Kong to China's Pearl River Delta and the world's business capitals. It is suited to hosting world-class exhibitions, conventions, concerts, sports, and entertainment events.
