Four International Food and Health Fairs Open Tomorrow
Special Bus Services Arranged for Visitor Transportation
13 August 2008 - Under the umbrella theme of "food and health," four international exhibitions, including the inaugural HKTDC Hong Kong International Wine Fair, the HKTDC Food Expo, the International Conference & Exhibition of the Modernization of Chinese Medicine & Health Products (ICMCM), and the Hong Kong International Medical & Health Care Fair, open tomorrow at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).
The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), organiser of the fairs, arranged for a fair preview this afternoon. Lawrence Yipp, the HKTDC's Director of Exhibitions Planning and Marketing, briefed the media on fair highlights and special transportation arrangements.
"As the indoor pedestrian walkway between HKCEC Phase 1 and Phase 2 is temporarily closed for expansion work from 6 August to 14 September, visitors must use the Expo Drive Entrance when attending the Food Expo, ICMCM, Hong Kong International Medical & Health Care Fair," said Mr Yipp.
A special public bus service (Citybus 25R) has been arranged to circulate between Expo Drive Central and the United Centre Bus Terminus in Admiralty; the fare is HK$2.50. Mini buses to and from Mong Kok (bus fare: HK$13) and Kwan Tong (bus fare: HK$15) will also be available, 4:30pm to 11pm, 14-18 August.
