This coming November will mark the 35th anniversary of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (“HKCEC”), and in the lead-up to the occasion the venue has won some major awards for its service excellence and sustainability achievements.
The HKCEC won the Silver Award in the “Best International Venue” category of the EN Awards in 2023, the second consecutive year of its winning this award. The award reaffirms the HKCEC’s status as one of the most preferred venues for international organisers to hold world-class exhibitions and conferences. The EN Awards, held by Mash Media, are an annual event that acknowledges the best events and service providers of the global exhibition industry. The award committee selects the best international venues according to the types and numbers of events that they serve as well as the venues’ ESG strategies, customer satisfaction levels, and venue investment and development activities. This year, five international venues were shortlisted.
In addition to its success at the EN Awards, the HKCEC was also voted “Hong Kong’s Best Convention Centre” by conference organisers and industry leaders at the World MICE Awards. The venue’s management company, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited (“HML”), was also awarded the “20 Years Plus Caring Company” logo by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and received Hong Kong Green Organisation Certification from the Environmental Campaign Committee for its outstanding achievements in community service and environmental protection respectively.
Monica Lee-Müller, Managing Director of HML, said she was delighted by the good news. “I can think of no better way to get the HKCEC’s 35th anniversary celebrations underway than by receiving these recognitions for our achievements,” she said. “We plan to celebrate this special anniversary under the theme ‘Sustain Excellence for Future,’ which captures the commitment of the HML team to achieving sustainability, continuously delivering service excellence, and surging ahead with new improvement initiatives.
“These awards are also a powerful affirmation of HML’s professionalism and of the HKCEC’s leading position as a venue of choice for world-class events as the exhibition and convention industries recover from the pandemic.”
