Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has been getting into the spirit of the Olympic Games in Hong Kong with an exhibition of OMEGA?s Olympic themed collections and Olympic Timekeeping memorabilia.
Airport Authority at HKIA is holding an exhibition of the memorabilia in association with OMEGA and Nuance-Watson (HK) until March 5, 2006 in Departures Hall level 6 on the North Side. ‘We are pleased once again to assist our retailers in bringing in new business initiatives and concepts. This new collection will bring our shoppers excitement and anticipation for the next Winter Olympics,’ said Hans Bakker, Commercial Director of Airport Authority Hong Kong.
Former Hong Kong swimmer and ambassador of OMEGA Alex Fong was on hand to launch the exhibition and was joined by Ms Elinda Cheng, Marketing Director of OMEGA Hong Kong & China, Ms Alessandra Piovesana, Managing Director of Nuance-Watson (HK) Ltd as well as Hans Bakker.
OMEGA says that the impressive increase in retail sales and passenger traffic and the high quality of customers with high spending power at HKIA prompted the company to choose HKIA for this exhibition.
Included in the exhibition are some of OMEGA?s latest collections including the OMEGA Timeless Collection and the OMEGA Torino (Turin) Collection. OMEGA is also exhibiting timekeeping equipment used at previous Winter Olympics.
The equipment is on loan from the OMEGA museum in Switzerland and includes a third generation OMEGAscope (ca. 1980), a high precision timekeeping device driven by a 100 KHz quartz oscillator with thermostat.
