Hong Kong's Expo visitors top 1 million (with photos)

Total admissions to the Hong Kong Pavilion and Hong Kong’s Urban Best Practices Area (UBPA) Exhibition at World Expo 2010 Shanghai China (Shanghai Expo) topped the one million mark yesterday (June 26).

Since the opening of the Shanghai Expo on May 1, the Hong Kong Pavilion has received on average more than 10,000 visitors a day while the UBPA Exhibition has seen about 8,000 visitors a day.

Commissioner, HKSAR Expo Affairs Office, Mr Patrick Chan said the number of visitors to the two exhibitions had exceeded expectations.

“We are very encouraged by the higher than expected visitor figures since opening day,” said Mr Chan.

“We have been conducting opinion surveys with our visitors and, overall, our two exhibitions have been well received.

“Apart from showing keen interest in the specific elements of both exhibitions, visitors have been generally impressed by the services provided by our Pavilion and UBPA Exhibition staff.

“Our staff have gained a lot of experience handling large numbers of visitors over the past two months, including the six days of trials in April, and will continue to work hard to provide our visitors with a welcoming and memorable experience.”

Shanghai Expo runs until October 31. For more details on Hong Kong’s participation in Shanghai Expo, please visit www.hkexpo2010.gov.hk.
