History & Facts

Opened in 1988, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre managed and operated by the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre Management Limited, is a member of NWS Holdings Limited (Stock code: 0659.HK). The addition of the HK$4.8 billion (US$620 million) Extension in 1997, which over doubled our size, has today created one of the world's most impressive, efficient and functional meeting and exhibition venues.

A massive aluminium roof captures the rhythm and delicacy of a seabird's wing. The world's tallest glass wall opens onto fantastic vistas of Hong Kong's famed harbour. A versatile, world-class venue offers gracious service and unbeatable facilities in the business heart of one of the world's greatest and most forward-looking cities.
