Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) opened in November 1988. Since then, Hong Kong's trade exhibition business has been flourishing, laying the foundation for Hong Kong to become a center of Asian trade activities and a venue for important international conferences. The construction cost at the opening of the Convention and Exhibition Center in 1988 was HK$1.6 billion (US$207 million), which does not include land prices. The first expansion project completed in 1997 cost HK$4.8 billion (US$620 million), including reclamation costs. The second expansion in 2009 cost a total of HK$1.4 billion (US$180 million).
The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre is the representative of Hong Kong's newest building complex. Its new wing is expanded by reclamation. It is surrounded by a large auditorium and a large exhibition hall. It is distributed in a three-storey building and is the largest exhibition hall in the world. First, its unique bird-winged shape also adds a lot of color to the beautiful Victoria Harbour. When Hong Kong returned to Hong Kong in 1997, it held a Chinese ceremony at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. The great moment has also become the focus of the international community.
