Asia’s Largest Spring Electronics Fair Opens Next Week

Wide Range of Products at Event with Concurrent ICT Expo, Lighting Fair


6 April 2011 – More than 3,650 exhibitors will take part in three international trade fairs, including Asia’s largest spring electronics show, 13-16 April, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).


The concurrent events, including the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition), the International ICT Expo and the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition), are organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).


Mobile Sourcing
The fairs will also introduce new HKTDC sourcing applications for iPad and iPhone mobile devices. In a press conference today, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau offered a preview of the apps designed to help buyers to locate suppliers and products at the fair more easily.


“The software for HKTDC Product Magazines offers interactive features such as a search function to find exhibitors, as well as bookmarking, notes, voice recording, multimedia product presentations and more,” said Mr Chau, describing the sourcing tools available for free download at Apple’s App Store.


Rising Electronics Demand
Now in its eighth edition, the Electronics Fair will bring together at least 2,430 exhibitors, including first-time participants from Monaco, Sweden and Ukraine. “Responding to growing market needs, we are launching two new product display zones at the fair – Silver Market and eAccessories,” Mr Chau said.


Another highlight at the electronics event will be the Hall of Fame, a premium section dedicated to nearly 500 leading brands such as Coby, Desay, Foryou, Goodway, Haier, Hanvon, Hyundai, Motorola, Philips and Tunbow.


Other themed zones will focus on Audio Visual Products, Digital Imaging, Personal Electronics, Home Appliances, In-Vehicle Electronics and Navigation Systems, Solar Photovoltaic Technology, Telecommunications Products, and more.


New ICT Products
The eighth ICT Expo will welcome more than 570 exhibitors, with newcomers from Poland and Russia. “The fair’s new Smartphone & Tablet Zone showcases the latest mobile communication products, while the Digital Living & Multimedia Zone focuses on must-have ICT items for 21st century homes,” said Mr Chau.


Adding glitz to the fair is the Home-grown Innovation zone, which presents state-of-the-art exhibits from local educational institutions.


A popular attraction at the Expo is the SME IT Clinic which provides SMEs with complimentary professional consultation on ICT systems and solutions that can help them improve their business efficiency.


Green Tech Lights the Way
The third edition of the Lighting Fair is expected to welcome about 650 exhibitors, a 70 per cent increase over last year. A full array of lighting products ranging from domestic to commercial and architectural will be on display and exhibitors from Macau, the Netherlands and Spain will make their debut at the fair.


“Technology has enhanced development of the lighting industry, especially in the fields of green luminaries,” said Mr Chau. “The fair will welcome twice as many exhibitors in the LED Lighting and Green Lighting zones, reflecting fast-growing demand for environmental-friendly lighting products.”


Another fair focus will be the Decorative Lighting Zone, showcasing festive and decorative pieces. Other themed zones include Lighting Accessories, Parts & Components and Technical Lighting.


Tracking Industry Trends
More than 20 conferences and seminars will be held during the fairs, providing businesses with the latest information on topics such as global safety requirements for electronic products, smartphone and tablet computers, ICT technology for the retail industry, e-logistics, and new materials and technologies for lighting.


John Tsang, Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will deliver a keynote speech at the ICT Award Presentation Ceremony on the evening of 15 April, and for the first time, the World Summit Awards and related events will take place during the fair period.
