The fair's Hall of Fame returns with nearly 500 leading brands, including AEG, Coby, Desay, Foryou, Goodway, Haier, Lenco, Motorola, Pierre Cardin, Rollei, Telefunken, Tunbow and Westinghouse.
Seminars, product-launch sessions and networking events during the four-day fair spotlight the latest trends in consumer electronics technology, including quality standards, safety regulations, testing and certification, and mobile device apps.
The fair also unveils a new Small-Order Zone, offering exhibitors and buyers a unique opportunity to sample thousands of products in a series of showcases at the Expo Drive Entrance.
"Buying in small quantity allows me to better control inventory," says United States buyer Sam Naimian of High Secret. Emerging markets are also showing interest in the new concept. "In view of the economic uncertainties in the coming season, I would rather buy in small quantities," says Joanna Sikorska, Senior Fashion Buyer at Poland's LPP SA. Buyers can also take advantage of the new zone online, at www.hktdc.com/so .
ICT Expo welcomes group pavilions from seven countries and regions: Australia, Canada, the mainland, India, Taiwan and new participants Japan and Malaysia.

Hong Kong Cyberport companies will also participate, showcasing ICT solutions for enterprises.
Forums and seminars during the fair focus on ICT solutions for companies, business opportunities in the cloud-computing and mobile-apps market, as well as retail technology and e-commerce, offering plenty of partnership opportunities in the growing ICT business.
