"As a long-standing member of the local entertainment industry, I'm happy to serve as the Entertainment Expo's Ambassador once again," said Mr Lai. "The expo is a great annual event and I encourage everyone to join me in supporting all the different activities this year."

The promotional video for the 2019 EE began showing at more than 50 cinemas across Hong Kong on the first day of Chinese New Year (5 Feb). The video has also been uploaded to the HKTDC Facebook page, with lucky draws to follow. Please stay tuned to the Facebook page for details.

The EE will be held from 18 March to 14 April and comprises eight events covering a global mix of film, TV, music and digital entertainment.
