AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) has recently received world-class distinctions for its performance and dedication to making Hong Kong one of the world's top MICE destinations. These honours are consistent with the HKSAR Government's goal stated in "The Chief Executive's 2022 Policy Address" to consolidate Hong Kong's status as a premier venue for large-scale international convention and exhibitions. The government has extended the Convention and Exhibition Industry Subsidy Scheme for six months to June 30, 2023, followed by a fresh subsidy of HKD1.4 billion to support over 200 shows in the coming three years.

„It is a recognition of our team's accomplishment in overcoming challenges and capturing opportunities.“
Irene Chan, CEO of AsiaWorld-Expo
AsiaWorld-Expo was named Best Venue (Rest of World) and MICE Team of the Year at the C&IT Awards 2022, organised by UK-based magazine Conference & Incentive Travel. This honour is significant as AWE is the first venue in Asia to have been shortlisted and awarded by the distinguished C&IT Awards. A panel of MICE experts assessed entries based on outstanding displays of strategic business direction, event team best practices, and case studies. AWE also won the Best Convention Centre - North Asia for the second time in the M&C Asia Stella Awards 2022, adding to its previous achievement in 2019. "In recent years, AWE completed its HKD600 million facility upgrade, with enhanced conferencing facilities to be launched in coming months", stated Ms. Irene Chan, CEO of AsiaWorld-Expo. "Winning these two honours and being the first in Asia to earn the title for 'Best Venue' at the C&IT Awards, validates our commitment to continual improvement. It is a recognition of our team's accomplishment in overcoming challenges and capturing opportunities. We are also looking forward to the development of SKYCITY, which will bring more exciting prospects to AWE and the sector."
