NEWS ALERT: Hong Kong Tourism Board Provides Satellite Feed of New Year . New World-Hong Kong Countdown Celebrations

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 30, 2014) - The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) will stage a "pyromusical" which interweaves pyrotechnics with fireworks, special lighting effects and music on New Year's Eve (31 December) to usher in the year 2015. This year, spectators will be able to not just watch the spectacular pyromusical but also enjoy an all-round sense experience, as there will be a special snow and fragrance effect during the show.

The iconic Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) will become the highlight once again, with pyrotechnics launched over the harbour and from the rooftops of a number of buildings in Wan Chai and Admiralty. Glittering rings and iridescent colours of the rainbow will light up the harbour, offering spectators a glimpse of the first "rainbow" of the New Year. Complementing the show are various animations and greetings in different languages displayed on the LED screen on the façade of the HKCEC, creating a stronger visual impact for the audience.
