The 26th Annual Conference will take place in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of the world’s most exciting cities; it is centrally located, readily accessible, safe, clean and visitor-friendly. It is international, and at the same time, quintessentially Chinese. English is widely spoken with signage in both Chinese and English, making getting around very easy. Public transport is clean, efficient and cheap - especially taxis’. There is a huge variety of international cuisines, with restaurants ranging from small ‘hole in the wall’ local Chinese eateries to world famous Michelin starred restaurants.
Hong Kong is in the heart of Asia and has an Asian heart. Hong Kong has traditionally been - and continues to act - as a bridge between east and west. The Hong Kong has strong pre-existing links with local Asian communities ensuring strong local and regional support for the conference. Staff from the Academy can draw support from Hong Kong University, Hong Kong Institute of Higher Education, Hong Kong Sports Institute, the Hong Kong Dance Alliance, the Beijing Dance Academy, Shanghai Theatre Academy, Taiwan National University of the Arts and Taitung University and many more.
