January 23, 2018

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) concluded its first events of the year last week, attracting some 126,000 buyers to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), a figure which represents a growth of 6% over last year.

Running from 8th to 11th January, the Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair welcomed more than 49,000 buyers, the Hong Kong Baby Products Fair attracted close to 33,000 buyers, and the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair featured about 21,000 buyers. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong International Licensing Show was held from 8th to 10th January and attracted more than 22,000 buyers.

Benjamin Chau, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC, commented, “As the global economy stabilises, the four fairs have achieved satisfactory results. Buyers from such emerging markets… and those from developed markets… recorded satisfactory growth. Besides, there was a double-digit percentage increase in the number of buyers from the Chinese mainland. The HKTDC will continue to provide an international trade and exchange platform for industry professionals to generate more business opportunities for all.”
