A Symphony of Lights – will ring in 2020 with a kaleidoscope of lighting effects that will highlight Hong Kong’s stunning skyline. Live satellite feed of the entire show lasting around 10 minutes will be provided to media organizations worldwide so that the international audience can share the festivities.
At 11:59 pm on 31 December 2019, the façade of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) will turn into a giant clock to count down to the new year with locals and visitors. Once the clock strikes 00:00, an enriched version of the multimedia show, A Symphony of Lights, will commence. In addition to lasers, searchlights, LED screens and other lighting effects at numerous harbourfront buildings, the new year countdown special edition will be synchronized with pyrotechnics launched from building rooftops and the display of “2020” on the façade of the HKCEC.
Another novelty of the countdown event is a territory-wide lucky draw organized for the very first time to enrich the festive ambiance. Both in-town visitors and locals can participate through simple registration on the event website (http://www.hknycd.com) between 6:00 pm and 11:30 pm (Hong Kong time) on 31 December 2019. Ten lucky winners will each be awarded four return economy class tickets sponsored by Cathay Pacific Airways for traveling to/from Hong Kong. With two of the tickets, the winners can invite their families and friends living abroad to visit Hong Kong.
