PHUKET, 27 September, 2010 - HotelTravel.com is creating hotel promotions for visitors to the annual Hong Kong International Art and Antiques Fair this year from 3 to 6 October, which has re-invented itself as Fine Art Asia 2010.   According to Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Racette, repositioning the event is the logical evolution for Hong Kong, which is now universally recognised as the centre of the art market in Asia.   "The name change reflects its status as Asia’s premier art fair presenting a unique combination of art and antiques. Hong Kong is also the gateway to the Chinese art world. It has emerged as one of the world’s largest and strongest markets for art and antiques.   "Plus Hong Kong ranks number three on the art auction circuit after New York and London. There is also no sales tax on art in Hong Kong and import and export of artwork is not restricted," Mr Racette, added.   If you’re planning to visit Hong Kong during Fine Art Asia 2010, HotelTravel.com has created a selection of excellent promotions for quality Hong Kong hotels to choose from that are close to the expo grounds.   For hotels in Wan Chai, sever mid-range properties that have received good reviews from real HotelTravel.com customers that have stayed in the hotels include South Pacific Hotel Hong Kong (from US$ 74 per night), Charterhouse Hotel (from US$ 69 per night), Bonaparte By Rhombus Hotel (from US$ 58 per night) and Renaissance Harbour View Hotel (from US$ 58 per night).   Among the top-range accommodation choices in Wan Chai are the Grand Hyatt Hotel Hong Kong (from US$ 300 per night), Novotel Century Hong Kong Hotel (from US$ 114 per night) and  the Fleming Hotel (from US$ 108 per night).   Hotels in Causeway Bay offer other option that is easily accessible to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre by taxi or the underground.   -----ends----
