For the first time in 4 years, ports, destinations and service providers showcased their latest facilities and products to a cast of eager cruise line executives from the Asia Pacific region. Exhibiting companies took advantage of our most turnkey offer ever featuring extraordinary benefits.
There is so much untapped potential in Asian waters. Hong Kong has secured over 160 calls this year from 18 cruise lines signaling the robust recovery and momentum of cruising within the regional market. The 2023 event was the perfect time to resume talks with the region's top decision makers.
The cruise scene in Asia offers opportunities for domestic, short and long-haul markets, for homeporting, transit ports on intra-Asia sailings, as well as world voyage stopovers. Currently, Hong Kong has connections with 220 destinations, is visa-free to nationals of 160+ countries and is within a five-hour flight radius for half of the global population.
Asia holds untapped opportunities for cruise lines to develop new itineraries and draw on multiple regional source markets as well as international long-haul passengers. Hong Kong, as part of the dynamic Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), also offers cruise lines excellent opportunities to develop cruise products and attract visitors from southern mainland cities, travelling via the iconic Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge - the longest sea crossing in the world or the High Speed Rail, with a population of 86 million in the GBA as one of the source markets.
