Three art fairs were collocated at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) at the end of May 2021: Art Basel Hong Kong 2021, Art Central, and Christie's Hong Kong Spring Auctions 2021. This will be the first time that the three events were held over the same period, creating synergy and presenting attendees a total artistic experience.
Monica Lee-Müller, managing director of Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Management Limited (HML), is confident that Hong Kong's exhibition industry will progressively recover as the local pandemic situation eases off. "We are grateful to the event organisers who work with us to shape the new normal. We had a fabulous week at the HKCEC, having the three prestigious art events under one roof to re-energise the art scene and create a unique synergy."

Lee-Müller reports a strong demand for physical events with some 20 exhibitions and 67 conferences and other events having taken place at the HKCEC since January 2021. "HML works closely with organisers to implement stringent preventive measures. Exhibitions also benefited from the HKSAR Government's Convention and Exhibition Industry Subsidy Scheme", she adds.
