Welcome to SKAL

SKAL International Hong Kong is Hong Kong's largest travel and tourism industry association, promoting networking, friendship and the development of tomorrow's industry leaders. Founded in 1949, SKAL Hong Kong forms part of a worldwide organisation active in over 90 countries.

Through regular lunches and events,  SKAL Hong Kong membership allows you to meet your industry peers informally and keep up to date on industry trends and developments - whilst making good friends along the way.

Informal, Convivial Events

SKAL lunches and events are held regularly across Hong Kong's leading 5 star hotels, offering first class wining and dining, great guest speakers, a chance to catch up with old industry friends and make new ones, and to stay connected in a friendly, social style.

Joining SKAL is easy, just reach out to us anytime. 

RCEF | SKAL's Charitable Pursuit

SKAL Hong Kong's primary charitable pursuit is the Rudy Choy Educational Fund (RCEF). Set up in 1992, the RCEF is in memory of Rudy Choy, one of the doyens of Hong Kong's travel industry. The Fund provides award scholarships and grants to students in local universities and technical institutes that offer courses directly related to hospitality, travel and tourism.

Rudy was instrumental in the founding of the Hong Kong Tourist Association and Hong Kong Hotel Association and played leading roles in them throughout his working life. He was Marketing Director of the East Asia Travel Association (EATA), a Life Member of SKAL Hong Kong (having twice served as its president) and a Life Member of Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA).

Over the years, SKAL Hong Kong has raised several millions dollars for the RCEF through industry events and donations, helping to develop the careers of tomorrow's industry leaders. 

Young SKAL Initiative

Young SKAL is an initiative to provide invaluable opportunities for Hong Kong's hospitality students as well as those taking their first career steps to meet and network amongst hotel, travel and tourism decision makers.

Young SKAL is the ideal platform for SKAL members to connect with 
outstanding emerging talent within the industry.
