Hong Kong

Asia's premier exhibition venue

AsiaWorld-Expo, a major Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project in Hong Kong, is an intrinsic component of the developments of Hong Kong International Airport. Marking a new level of business expansion for our parent company, a Dragages-led consortium joined with the Government and the Airport Authority to co-invest, design, build and operate AsiaWorld-Expo.
In keeping with the requirements of the exhibition industry, the structure includes 10 column-free halls, one of which can be converted into a multi-purpose arena with seating for up to 13,500.
Since its opening in December 2005, AsiaWorld-Expo has played host to a vast array of international events, including the mega ITU Telecom World 2006, Asian Aerospace International Expo and Congress 2007 and the China Sourcing Fairs among many others.
Technical expertise

AsiaWorld-Expo is home to many value engineering options that have been proposed and implemented by BYME. The initial cost of the chiller plant was reduced by 60% thanks to the introduction of a latent thermal storage system. Furthermore, installation and maintenance costs were slashed thanks to the use of innovative textile diffuser ducts.
