Nestled beside the Victoria Harbour and the new MTR Whampoa Station, Harbour Grand Kowloon is a private retreat offering luxurious accommodation and diverse dining options, as well as the venue of choice for heads of state, international athletes and celebrities.
Each delegate is responsible for making his or her own hotel reservation. The cost of the hotel room is not included in the registration fee. Any guestroom changes, cancellations, etc., are the delegate’s responsibility and must be made directly with the hotel according to the guidelines below in order to avoid financial penalty. A room block is being held at Harbour Grand Kowloon for AACSB event participants. Preferred room rate is HK$1,750 per night, single or double occupancy, plus a 10% service charge and prevailing government tax (currently 0%). The room rate includes complimentary in-room wireless internet access and daily breakfast buffet at The Promenade. When making reservations, please ask for the AACSB room block to receive the preferred room rate. The Harbour Grand Kowloon must be contacted no later than April 16, 2020 to receive the group discount room rate. Sleeping rooms are based on availability and may sell out prior to the cut-off date.
When making arrangements through travel websites or an agent, the negotiated AACSB rates may not always be available. Please request your travel agent to book your room in the AACSB-negotiated room block for the event.
We have been made aware that third-party companies, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS), Global Expo Travel, Exhibitor Travel Bureau, and Business Travel Management, are contacting our attendees, introducing themselves as the official ‘housing bureau’ for the event. This is not the case. EHS, Global Expo Travel, Exhibitor Travel Bureau, and Business Travel Management are not affiliated in any way with AACSB or with the Harbour Grand Kowloon. If you booked through these companies, we believe that your information may be compromised and we would strongly recommend that you do not give any personal information, including credit card details to EHS, Business Travel Management, Global Expo Travel, Exhibitor Travel Bureau, or any other unknown vendor. If you receive an e-mail from these companies, please forward to it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
