Persons with Amber Code Can Enter Conventions and Expos

Persons with Amber Code Allowed to Enter B2B Conventions and Expos

The Hong Kong government from today will allow persons with amber codes in their Vaccine Pass to attend business-to-business (B2B) conventions and exhibitions, ensuring they wear their mask, according to a government news portal on Aug. 23.

Amidst a rise in COVID-19 cases, the government employed red and amber codes in the Vaccine Pass on Aug. 9 to ensure high-risk people reduce cross-infection with others in mask-off premises.

With conventions and exhibitions, the government said that the participation of members of trade involved in B2B exhibitions is considered work in nature and does not fall under social mass group gatherings.

Owing to the need to resume social and economic activities, the government will henceforth allow inbound people from overseas to participate in B2B conventions and exhibitions held in public entertainment and event venues granted they have an amber code.
