Asia’s only five star accredited international equestrian show jumping event, the Longines Hong Kong Masters (LHKM), returns this year with another stellar line-up.
The second edition, which takes place at the 27,000 square metre AsiaWorld-Expo Hong Kong venue from February 21 to 23, will see the world’s top jockeys compete for a total of US$1 million in prize money. Created and organised by EEM World, it is expected to attract some 32,000 visitors. It is a unique sports-meet-social event that combines exciting on-track and off-track entertainment.
Christophe Ameeuw, EEM World CEO, said: “We wish to create a unique meeting point between the best show jumping, glamorous entertainment, luxury lifestyle and arts. Similar to tennis, each Masters Grand Slam Indoor event takes place in main capitals across continents: Paris for Europe and Hong Kong as the Asian destination, and welcomes horse enthusiasts, VIPs, celebrities, opinion and business leaders and families alike.”
In addition to equestrian sports, the LHKM offers a dinner menu prepared by two star Michelin chef Yves Mattagne. A contemporary art exhibition, organised by Opera Gallery, is also set to showcase a four-metre installation of a Stallion, made entirely out of coat hangers by Scottish artist David Mach, as well as a horse head constructed out a Formula One engine by French artist Pierre Matter.
