In 1994, the Group organised the first wedding related exhibition at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (the “HKCEC”) with positive feedback from the public for this novel idea. Starting from 1996, the Group organised the wedding exhibitions as regular events annually at the HKCEC. The Group organised three wedding expos in 1996 and four wedding expos on a quarterly-basis in 1997. We successfully attract international exhibitors from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Europe, Guam and other countries to participate in our wedding expos. We also held events in difference wedding themes, including 100-Couple Group Wedding Ceremony, Asia Young Designers Wedding Gown Design Competition and Marriage Solemnisation by the famous artist Norika Fujiwara from Japan.
We actively explored more new elements in its established exhibitions besides the wedding expos and organized various exhibitions at the HKCEC including Cyber Web Expos, Beauty and Fitness Expos, Hong Kong Mega Showcase, Hong Kong Food Festival, Hong Kong Homex, e-Expo and Hong Kong Car Show (New Edition).
Hong Kong Mega Showcase and Hong Kong Wedding Fair have become representative and established annual exhibition events which attracted numerous local exhibitors and visitors as well as exhibitors from overseas and from the PRC. The number of exhibitors, exhibition booths and visitors of the annual exhibitions held increased steadily.
