Here's looking back at the last decade of celebrations from the countdown to 2009 to the last one in 2020. You can see how the spectacle has evolved from the earlier years when the focal point was at the IFC center, then the tallest building in Hong Kong, and in later years transitioning to the Hong Kong Convention Center with fireworks being launched from barges set up in the middle of Victoria Harbour.
