|Celebrity Calls for Support for Entertainment Industry with Actions|
HONG KONG, Feb 23, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Hong Kong superstar Leon Lai has once again accepted the invitation of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) to be the Ambassador of the 14th Entertainment Expo.
Following his viral tongue-twister promotional video last year, Mr Lai decides to create a striking contrast this year by introducing the Entertainment Expo's nine events in silence. The video ends with the slogan "Support with Actions" as Mr Lai invites the public to take part in this annual entertainment industry extravaganza and support Hong Kong's entertainment industry.
"As a member of Hong Kong's entertainment industry, I'm happy to serve as Entertainment Ambassador again," said Mr Lai. "The Entertainment Expo is a grand annual event. I encourage everyone to join me in supporting the event with actions."
The new promotional video started playing at more than 50 cinemas across Hong Kong on Chinese New Year day (16 February). The video has also been uploaded to the HKTDC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/hktdc.hk), with lucky draws to follow. Please stay tuned to the Facebook page for details.
The 14th Entertainment Expo, Hong Kong, will be held from 19 March to 15 April. The expo comprises 9 events covering a global mix of film, TV, music and digital entertainment.
