HONG KONG, 22 May 2017: With the recent officially launch of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s third hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge, last Tuesday, the resort believes new and existing facilities will help to attract more bookings from meeting, incentive, convention and exhibition sector (MICE).

Talking to a media group interview last week, the resort’s business solutions and events director, Karen Kwan, said “in terms of positioning, we have a conference centre in the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel so the new hotel will supplement the existing accommodation to draw MICE visitors.”

“For MICE groups and corporate clients, our resort can support them to oragnise events such as team building as well as cocktail receptions…the four themes of the new hotel gardens –  Asia, Oceania, South America and Africa plus three restaurants including a private room will add value and offer more variety and choices for clients.” Read more
