AWE Welcomes the Robust Rebound of Global MICE Business
With all checkpoints between Hong Kong and Mainland China finally reopened on 6 February, and following the return of quarantine-free travel without any requirement for Covid-19 testing, AWE is warmly welcoming the world back to its award-winning facilities. The cancellation of all social distancing measures and inbound travel restrictions means that face-to-face international events are expected to make a spectacular rebound in the year ahead, bringing business travellers back together again and supercharging opportunities for event organisers around the world.
To kickstart the 2023 exhibition calendar, AWE is delighted to welcome the return of two major events in the months ahead, including the Global Sources Series in April, which will be a full-house event covering all 10 halls.

Global Sources Hong Kong Show
The Global Sources flagship trade shows will take place from 11-14 and 18-21 April 2023 at AWE. Scaled to meet the rebound in demand from sourcing professionals worldwide, this influential international B2B sourcing event will focus on in-demand products in popular categories such as carbon neutrality, outdoors and travel, and the pet economy. In total, the event will host more than 8,000 booths showcasing over 200,000 creative products, innovative technologies, and applications of the latest design concepts online and offline.

Asia Fruit Logistica
Another event heading back to AWE is Asia’s premier fresh fruit and vegetable trade show, Asia Fruit Logistica, which will be held on 6-8 September 2023. This landmark event will include the Asiafruit Congress, Asia’s preeminent and longest-running fresh produce business conference, where expert speakers will be sharing high-level insights on the key topics and latest trends in the industry.
Preparations are well under way for yet more exciting events at AWE. Following the completion of a comprehensive HK$600-million facility upgrade, we’re looking forward to welcoming organisers, exhibitors and visitors to a venue that’s better than ever before!

The International EXPOtainment Venue of Choice
13 - 15 January 2023

BLACKPINK is in the house! One of Hong Kong’s most hotly anticipated events of recent years was the K-pop sensation BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR [BORN PINK] World Tour, with all tickets for the three nights of performances selling out within minutes. This was the first time in several years that BLACKPINK had performed in Hong Kong, which was an important stop on its mammoth world tour alongside other Asian cities including Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Manila.
Located just one minute from Hong Kong International Airport, AWE is the perfect venue for superstars like BLACKPINK to fully maximise their busy schedule, allowing the girl team to fly in just a few hours before the soundcheck.
AWE also offers ample space for merchandising counters and crowd management, enabling a one-stop experience for fans that is seamless, orderly and pleasurable. On the last of the three nights, a whopping 14,000 ‘Blinks’ (as BLACKPINK’s fans are known) officially wrapped up the concert by forming a pink wave at AsiaWorld-Arena. On the same night, fans even got to celebrate group member Jennie’s birthday, making this finale Hong Kong concert even more special.

Katch Presents the Ultimate Song Chart Awards Presentation 2022
01 January 2023

As an acclaimed and highly newsworthy local award ceremony, the Ultimate Song Chart Awards Presentation started 2023 with a bang, attracting more than 10,000 visitors to AWE on New Year’s Day.
Drawing on AWE’s uniquely flexible configuration, and the professionalism of its award-winning banquet team, the event organiser held a Gala Dinner for the event partners and awardees right after the ceremony—and the massive banquet hall was located only a few steps away from the backstage area! Everyone in attendance was so impressed by this expert planning and delivery—not to mention the excellent food and service—many guests talked about their amazing experience in airtime programmes and on social media the next day.
AWE Adds Excitement with a Dedicated Cheering Zone
Taking advantage of AWE’s large versatile space, fans spontaneously initiated warm-up and cheering activities. To help fans create a truly immersive experience, AWE offered a dedicated zone for supporter rallies and the casting of votes for the coveted “Song of the Year” award. This area also featured a festival-like mini-market full of creative décor and fan giveaways, all of which helped to take the excitement to even greater heights before the show started.

Children’s Book Fair and Super Parents & Kids Expo
09 - 11 December 2022

The second edition of the Children’s Book Fair was successfully held at AWE in December. The three-day event was an innovative combination of a book fair and a parenting department store, which cleverly expanded the concept of a “book fair” from kids’ educational products to also include must-have merchandise for the whole family. More than 100 well-known parent-kid brands and exhibitors provided a diversified and one-stop experience of shopping, leisure, adventure, and education, creating the ideal weekend getaway for kids and parents. Free Airport Express rides for kids and special round-trip tickets for adults were also offered, allowing visitors to enjoy a comfortable and convenient journey to and from the venue.

International MotorXpo Hong Kong 2022 (IMXHK)
08 - 11 December 2022

Riding on the success of International MotorXpo Hong Kong (IMXHK) 2021, IMXHK 2022 returned for its second edition in December.
This four-day action-packed event was held in the format of “One MotorXpo, Two Locations”. This allowed the organiser to make use of both indoor and outdoor venues to create an inspirational programme that included a showcase of valuable vehicles and thrilling performances of drifting. AWE was the indoor venue featuring an exhibition of rare and vintage cars, as well as an art gallery of limited-edition masterpieces. The event brought together more than 80 companies and 50 international brands from around the world, as well as over 30 classic and modified cars, engaging visitors of all ages with a wide array of exhibitions and the first-ever MISS IMX contest. Across both locations, the event attracted over 180,000 visits and represented a milestone achievement for the local automotive industry.
