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.
