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.

Opening and Closing plenary sessions, lecture presentations, and movement sessions will take place at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in Hong Kong.

Weather in Hong Kong in October tends to be warm with sunny skies and low humidity. The average temperature is around 20˚C (68˚F) according to the government webpage but it might also be warmer in October.

Time Zones
The time zone during the meeting in Hong Kong is UTC +8 hours.

Electrical Power
The electric power is 220 Volt, 50 Hertz. Please note that a power converter is necessary to avoid damage to computers designed specifically for 120 V. Hong Kong uses a Type G electrical plug that has three rectangular blades in a triangular pattern and has an incorporated fuse (usually a 3 amps fuse for smaller appliances such as a computer and a 13 amps one for heavy duty appliances such as heaters). British sockets have shutters on the live and neutral contacts so that foreign objects can’t be introduced into them.
