Catering for the pent-up demand for incentive travel in the region and showcase Hong Kong’s latest offerings, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has been hosting multiple familiarisation trips over the past two months, as part of its campaign to boost business.

Kenneth Wong, general manager, MICE & Cruise of the HKTB, said that Hong Kong has been accelerating the development of infrastructure and tourism resources.

Ms Nam Hyo Rim, section manager of The MICE from South Korea, commented that Hong Kong is a multicultural city with a perfect blend of East and West.
The new museums in the city’s flagship arts and cultural quarter, WKCD, not only have world-class art exhibitions but also diverse flexible event venues for MICE groups to draw inspiration and stimulate creativity.
