Major Event 24/05/2014

2013 GrandSlam Standard Hong Kong © Kwong The Major Sports Events Committee (MSEC) has awarded "M" Mark status to the 7th Hong Kong DanceSport Festival - WDSF GrandSlam Hong Kong 2014, to be held from May 31 to June 1.

The Chairman of the MSEC, Mr William Ko, said today (May 23) that the event, like all "M" Mark events, will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong and help attract more visitors.

"'M' Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and reinforce its position as the events capital of Asia," Mr Ko said.

"'M' Mark events also help generate economic benefits for Hong Kong by attracting tourists. They also instil a sustainable sporting culture in the community, and help foster a sense of pride and social cohesion," he added.

The "M" Mark System has been in operation since 2004 to help local national sports associations (NSAs) organise more major sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. Sports events meeting the assessment criteria, in terms of economic benefits, the impact on sports development and the good track record of the organisers, will be granted "M" Mark status by the MSEC.

The number of recognised "M" Mark events has increased from four in 2005 to 14 in 2014. So far, a total of $74.59 million has been approved to support recognised "M" Mark events.

The congratulations of WDSF go to the organisers of the GrandSlam, the Hong Kong DanceSport Association. Well done!
