Exhibitor’s Comments
“We have been exhibiting at the Hong Kong Optical Fair for five consecutive years. We have made more than 120 new contacts from the Chinese mainland, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. A large optical chain store in Hong Kong wants to be the exclusive agent for two brands namely Fixxative from Korea and Percy Lau from Hong Kong. Several retailers from the Chinese mainland, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand have already placed onsite orders for over 1,000 pieces. We are satisfied with the business results so far. We’ll bring more new brands to the fair and consider having a bigger booth next year.”
Ivan Chan, General Manager, Kingvisions Limited, Hong Kong

Buyer’s Comments
“I come to the Hong Kong Optical Fair regularly to see new technologies, new trends, new frames and new optometric instruments. At this year’s fair, I am looking for new suppliers of optical frames. I have found six potential suppliers from the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong. Our initial order quantity will be 10,000-50,000 pairs.”
Gerson Eissen, CEO, Benchimol, Brazil
