Famed by Hong Kong’s stunning skyline, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) is a magnificent, multi-purpose venue located right in the heart of Hong Kong on Victoria Harbour.
Not only does the harbour location provide a spectacular backdrop to events but it also means Hong Kong’s Central Business District and the best of the city is on the Centre’s doorstep – and it’s a vibrant city packed full of colour and life. The HKCEC is even connected to two world-class hotels, the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong and the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel.
With its vast curtain of glass and 40,000 square-metre aluminium roof sculpted to echo a seabird soaring in flight, the striking HKCEC is a major landmark on the Hong Kong Island skyline. This harbour-front expansion used top-down construction techniques to meet a challenge of limited land supply; its highly innovative methods winning many industry accolades.
While Jackie Chan fans may remember the building as the setting for the dramatic grand finale of New Police Story, it was also the backdrop for a drama of far more significance – the Handover Ceremony on 30 June 1997. This is when the former British Crown Colony was returned to the People's Republic of China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region was established.
