Based on the idea of a seabird with its wings as the cantilevering roof this building juts out into Hong Kong harbour. Inside the atrium stretches well into the distance and filled with a myriad of escalators. Contains Golden Bauhinia Cantonese Restaurant. The Hong Kong Convention Centre was extended in 1997. HKCEC hosts international conferences and conventions, film shows, concerts, banquets, corporate events, press conferences and seminars.
