Hong Kong as the Events Capital of Asia

Hong Kong is a dynamic and vibrant city with many mega events held each year. Mega events not only add colour and vibrancy to our city, but also enrich the travel experience of visitors and reinforce Hong Kong's position as an events capital of Asia.

Mega Events Fund

The Mega Events Fund (MEF) was first established in 2009. It aims to promote tourism, raise the profile of Hong Kong internationally and promote Hong Kong as an events capital of Asia. The Finance Committee of the Legislative Council approved the allocation of $150 million to the MEF to extend its operation for five years till end March 2017 under a modified two-tier system.

For details of the operation of the MEF under the two-tier system, please see the Government press releases and visit the information provided in this website (Tier-1 and Tier-2).

For information about the latest MEF-supported events, please visit the website of the Hong Kong Tourism Board.
