Providing a One-stop Sourcing Platform with Concurrent Printing & Packaging Fair at AsiaWorld-Expo

HONG KONG, Apr 27, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - The 33rd Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair opened today at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The four-day fair (27-30 April), organised by the HKTDC, features a record 4,360 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions, making it the world's largest fair of its kind. The 13th Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair, held in parallel with the Gifts & Premium Fair, opened today at the AsiaWorld-Expo. Jointly organised by the HKTDC and CIEC Exhibition Company (HK) Ltd, the Printing & Packaging Fair showcases a wide spectrum of quality packaging and printing products and services.

Debut of the World of Camping & Outdoor Goods Zone --

"The HKTDC launched the 'World of Camping & Outdoor Goods' Zone at this year's Gifts & Premium Fair in response to growing popularity of hiking and camping," said HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau. "The zone features more than 90 exhibitors from around the world that offer a variety of professional and casual climbing packs, daypacks, diving goods, camping gear and sports items. To generate greater business opportunity, the HKTDC invited more than 170 buying missions, comprising over 9,400 companies, to visit the Gifts & Premium Fair and Printing & Packaging Fair."

Hong Kong has long been a cradle for entrepreneurs. Recognising the rise of entrepreneurial activities, the Startup Zone was launched last year at the Gifts & Premium Fair to encourage innovative ideas and entrepreneurial spirit, which is a driving force for the economy. Returning this year, the zone promotes more than 30 start-ups including first-time participants from Indonesia and Vietnam. Start-ups from around the world will be able to expand their networks and uncover business opportunities through the Fair.

Four major zones under The Hong Kong Exporters' Association Pavilion --

Hong Kong's gifts industry is renowned for outstanding design and excellent quality - a favourite highlight for buyers at the Fair. The Hong Kong Exporters' Association has set up four major zones, "Isle of Originality", "Brand Oasis", "Smart Design Village" and "Trendy Gifts", to show quality and premium gifts from Hong Kong companies to global buyers. To further underscore the strength of Hong Kong design, winning pieces from the Hong Kong Smart Design Awards are on display at the fairground. These include the functional anti-theft backpack, which won the Judge Award (Gold), and the bacteria cleaner key chain, which won the Technology Award (Bronze).

Branded products in Hong Kong --

As there is a growing awareness in the importance of brand effect, the "Hall of Fine Designs" is displaying more than 130 brands from local and overseas companies, including B.Duck from Hong Kong, Sanrio from Japan, German writing instruments' brand Kaweco and Italian stationery brand Moleskine.

Besides the "Hall of Fine Designs", thematic zones are based on product categories to improve sourcing efficiency. Other main attractions range from the "World of Gift Ideas", "Beauty, Health & Wellness", "Fashion Accessories", "Figurines & Decorations" and "Licensed Gifts" to "Travel Goods & Umbrellas", "Startup Zone" and "Tech Gifts". There are also group pavilions set up by different countries and regions, including the Chinese mainland, Korea, India, Italy, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Kingdom, which exhibit their own distinctive products.
