Online Campaign
Key opinion leaders and other talents interviewed for the TV campaign also shared their in-depth views on AWE and its strong growth potential in a series of online videos. These informative videos attracted much positive feedback on social media, including Facebook, Weibo and LinkedIn, with many likes and shares helping to spread the message to business contacts and young fans alike. Highlights of the best-liked video were also posted on Apple Daily and Oriental Daily’s online news portal to keep the general public abreast of AWE’s outstanding performance.

Thematic Ad
In keeping with other local award-winning talents, AWE dedicates its success to Hong Kong. To communicate this important message, we launched a thematic print ad featuring Hong Kong fencing star Edgar Cheung Ka-long and multi-award-winning design consultant Andy Tong in mass newspaper titles. These eye-catching ads were designed to recognise Hong Kong’s home-grown up-and-coming talents who share AWE’s vision of achieving excellence despite all challenges.

Team Celebration
The collective efforts of the AWE team have been key to the venue winning both the EN Award and many other accolades. To celebrate these remarkable successes, the whole AWE team recently came together for a company-wide gathering. This joyful occasion was also a great opportunity to discuss the many exciting challenges that lie ahead. In addition to continuing to showcase Hong Kong’s MICE capabilities by establishing stronger alliances across industries, AWE is committed to maximising the huge opportunities created by Lantau’s Aero-bridgehead Economy Zone, and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area Development.

26 August 2017

Originated in the US, Sneaker Con made its debut show in Hong Kong at AWE. Known as “The Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth”, the event featured a vast range of highly-sought-after sneakers. Visitors were also able to take a peak at a wide collection of limited-edition sneakers and rare exhibits, and buy exclusive tailor-made items all under one roof.
Special features of the show at AWE included a “Sneaker Con Authenticated” station, where a team of experts were on hand to examine shoes and legitimise them for visitors, as well as a “Trading Pit” area where visitors could sell or trade items freely.
An epic highlight of the event was a spectacular line-up of sneaker heads and famous sneaker Youtubers from across the region, and the presence of ten-time NBA All-Star and two-time NBA Champion Ray Allen. Ray demonstrated his extraordinary skills and interacted with fans on-site, attracting extensive media coverage and live-broadcasts on local and regional social media.
Concurrent with the Sneaker Con, AWE was also the venue for the ReFUEL Automotive Entertainment Festival, and the G-DRAGON 2017 WORLD TOUR <ACT III, M.O.T.T.E> IN HONG KONG, all held at the venue on the same day.

By utilising AWE’s adjacent indoor and outdoor areas, the event’s thrilling programme offered spectators an exhilarating track-side experience and the exclusive opportunity to get up close to luxury motorcars.
To complete this day of non-stop excitement, the G-DRAGON 2017 WORLD TOUR concert provided yet another fun-filled extravaganza brimming with energy and style.
These three diverse events offered visitors a unique taste of fashion, sports, luxury and music all in one place—a truly one-of-a-kind experience that only AWE can offer!
