Kara YeungHong Kong’s debut cruise and yachting event, International Cruise and Yachting Festival (Hong Kong) 2018, has added the China Merchants Wharf in the Western and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum in the Central, to become its venues for the upcoming November event.

 

 

The Festival (ICYF), scheduled to be held from November 22 to 25, will bring together global cruise and yacht brands and boats in a mega event that will include an interesting activity program that features Cruising and Yachting, Maritime Lifestyle, Marine and Leisure Tourism, as well as Education and Employment.

 

 

With the aim of promoting public understanding of Hong Kong’s waters and sustainable development of the industry in the south China region, a series of informative and fun-filled activities will be arranged, ranging from exhibitions, forums, conferences to maritime-themed activities.

 

 

As the first mega event to be held in Hong Kong’s city centre, the four-day Festival will highlight the beauties of the iconic Victoria Harbour with a multi-perspective presentation of maritime activities on both sides of the harbour, including the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, the China Merchants Wharf in Western and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum (Central Ferry Piers).

 

 

The Event is organised by the Hong Kong Cruise & Yacht Industry Association (HKCYIA), with the support of the China Cruise & Yacht Industry Association (CCYIA) and the China Merchants Group (CMG).

 

 

The CCYIA has been a long-time partner of the China Communications and Transportation Association (CCTA) in advancing the development of the cruise and yacht industry and helping global brands to enter the China and Hong Kong markets. The CMG, which operates 53 ports in 20 countries and districts, is one of China’s leading maritime services group and is listed in the Fortune Global 500 list.

 

 

Kara Yeung, HKCYIA Executive Director, said that with its unique venues on both sides of the harbour, the Festival will become a propeller for Hong Kong’s future developments as the economy will be further entwined with the maritime industry.

 

 

The additional venues will provide the much-needed space to enable participants can showcase their products and services in convenient and natural settings along the harbour-front, she said.
