Total admissions to the Hong Kong Pavilion and Hong Kong's Urban Best Practices Area (UBPA) Exhibition at World Expo 2010 Shanghai China (Shanghai Expo) has topped the one million mark, said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR)'s government Sunday.

Since the opening of the Shanghai Expo on May 1, the Hong Kong Pavilion has received on average more than 10,000 visitors a day while the UBPA Exhibition has seen about 8,000 visitors a day.

Commissioner of HKSAR Expo Affairs Office Patrick Chan said the number of visitors to the two exhibitions had exceeded expectations.

"We are very encouraged by the higher than expected visitor figures since opening day," said Chan, stating that Hong Kong has been conducting opinion surveys with visitors, and overall the two exhibitions have been well received.

Chan said apart from showing keen interest in the specific elements of both exhibitions, visitors have been generally impressed by the services provided by Hong Kong Pavilion and UBPA Exhibition staff.

He added that Hong Kong's exhibition staff have gained a lot of experience handling large numbers of visitors over the past two months, including the six days of trials in April and will continue to work hard to provide visitors with a welcoming and memorable experience.
