“Visit the Traders 意日閣 on 2nd Floor in HKCEC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

HKCEC is one of the well known exhibition places in HK. There're numerous nice restaurants in it, I had tried most of them and I like Trader very much.

I visited it during a trade show in last June 2012. It was quite crowded due to exhibition but still worth a visit.

Sashimi was incredibly fresh, Environment was pretty cozy, it is a nice place for business and chilling with friends

“A wonderful building receiving big and famous events”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Of course it is not a touristic place, it is a very functional building where many events are organized. I had many occasions to go there and this infrastructure is impressive. It is very convenient reach the building by metro (wan chai station) or taxi, located between Causeway Bay and Central. This building is a part of the famous HK Island side waterfront and it is beautiful

“Sting - Back to Bass Tour at HKCEC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

We recently attended the Sting concert at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. This is a pretty good venue for concerts. Crowds can be moved in and out of the convention halls quite quickly and there is easy access to public transportation, restaurants and a bar district in Wan Chai.

We have attended concerts here in the past, sitting in the sections farther back, namely the Red and Yellow zones and have found sound quality to be quite good for indoor venues like the HKCEC. Two large screens show close ups of the artists which allows an enjoyable experience to be had from the back sections. However, the Blue (front) zone offers the better experience for obvious reasons of being closer to the artists. During encore, patrons in the zone were also freely able to stand just behind the VIP zone.

On the night, a talented pianist Rosey Chan kicked off the evening, playing a few of her own scores as well as a couple classics like Debussy's Claire de Lune. The main event started 45 minutes later and Sting played for seemingly two hours, including three encores. Sting remains in top form, belting out those high notes like he was still a much younger lead for The Police. Kudos also goes to his 5-man band who were equally impressive.

If intending to fly to an Asian country for international artists on world tour, HKCEC is a very good option to consider as the ticket prices in the front zone could be less expensive when compared with other cities (in the case of this Sting concert, HKCEC front zone tickets were cheaper than Singapore and Manila). However it can be difficult to procure front zone tickets for major draws like Sting, so it's always good to book tickets as early as possible!
