Originally taking place on 14 to 16 February at the AsiaWorld-Expo, EEM, the founder, owner and organiser of the event announced yesterday that Longines Masters of Hong Kong will not take place. This decision is a precautionary measure following the recent developments in the 2019-nCoV Coronavirus outbreak which is currently affecting the city of Hong Kong, Mainland China and across the APAC region.
“With more than 35,000 people expected from Hong Kong, Asia and around the world, the safety of our audience, athletes, visitors, exhibitors, service providers, internal teams, as well as that of the horses taking part in the Longines Masters of Hong Kong, is an absolute priority,” says Christophe Ameeuw, Founder and President of EEM. “Considering the uncertainty surrounding the 2019-nCoV Coronavirus outbreak, and in order to guarantee the welfare of our guests, partners and stakeholders, it is without hesitation that we have decided not to hold the event from 14 to 16 February.

It is with much regret that the organiser of The Longines Masters in Hong Kong has had to cancel the event. Sadly, this means that the Playtimes giveaway to win exclusive tickets to the Prestige Village also has had to be cancelled.
