Hong Kong Houseware Fair Set to Open
March 31, 2011,
More than 2,100 exhibitors from 32 countries will reach out to international buyers at the 26th edition of the Hong Kong Houseware Fair scheduled for April 20-23.Sponsored by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the fair is expected to attract more than 25,000 buyers from 130 countries and regions. Buyers at last year's show included representatives from QVC, Robinson Department Store, Z Gallerie and Home Solutions, according to show organizers.
The event will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in downtown Wanchia.
New for this year's show is the Green Living Zone, with many innovative green home items targeting the ecologically minded buyer and consumer.
The Houseware Fair will take place alongside the HKTDC Hong Kong International Home Textiles Fair, a spin-off of the housewares event that debuted last year. The inaugural edition attracted more than 14,300 buyers from 114 countries and regions.
"Having these two complementary fairs alongside creates synergy and opportunities," show organizers said.
