Thirty-two million. That’s how many same-day visitor arrivals were recorded in Hong Kong for 2015. It’s an incredible number. But with spending, overall arrivals and average length of stay dropping, Hong Kong must look to become more than just a hub for day-trippers and stop-over visitors.
Join us for this unique event that will offer insights about the city’s challenges and solutions to become a must-go destination for tourists around the world.
And what better place than the Star Ferry to discuss Hong Kong’s attractiveness!

Guest of Honour:
Philip Yung, Permanent Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, HKSAR Government

Master of Ceremony:
Anson Bailey, Head of Consumer Markets (Hong Kong), KPMG

Welcoming Remarks by:
Peter Lam, Chairman, Hong Kong Tourism Board
Alain Li, CEO Asia-Pacific, Richemont
