“Based in Vietnam, BKS designs lighting products and systems for different projects such as hotels, restaurants and villas, and we also have a lighting product showroom targeting Vietnamese consumers. The Autumn Lighting Fair has become bigger with more exhibitors since my last visit four years ago. We handle 30 projects every month. As our business is expanding, we need more new suppliers. At this year’s fair, I am looking for LED chips, LED drivers, LED reflectors and new products. I have just bought an LED reflector from a supplier on the Chinese mainland. I’ll test the quality and performance of this sample before placing an order.”
Quách Vǎn Tâm, Sales Director, BKS Engineering Co. Ltd, Vietnam


“Chang Terng is a distributor of ENDO lighting products in Taiwan. Our core business is to provide tailor-made lighting solutions to construction companies and the commercial and retail sectors in Taiwan. We visit the Autumn Lighting Fair regularly to source new products. At this year’s fair, we have found two to three potential suppliers from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan for the supply of uniquely designed, delicate and high-end lighting products which are suitable for commercial space and luxury apartments. We’ll study their product catalogues after the fair. We’ll come again next year because the Autumn Lighting Fair is a very good show with so many international exhibitors and a great variety of lighting products. We have seen some innovative products which are unavailable at other lighting fairs.”
Teresa Chiu, Special Assistant to Chairman, Chang Terng Enterprise Co., Ltd., Taiwan

“In business for 85 years, Crompton is among the top three general lighting suppliers in India. We manufacture and market a wide spectrum of general lighting products for homes and offices. This is my first time visiting the Autumn Lighting Fair. It is a huge show with a lot of new products. I have found two potential suppliers of LED battens and bulbs from the Chinese mainland and will follow up after the fair. LED lighting products are in the mainstream in the Indian market as a leading market research company forecasts that 69 per cent of the lighting business in India will go to LED lighting products by 2020. As there is no electricity supply in 25 per cent of the rural areas in India, I think solar lighting will be the next trend.”
Akshaya Shetty, Manager – Sourcing, Lighting Division, Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Limited, India


“JP Inwest supplies lighting products and solutions for the construction and retail sectors in Poland. This is our second-time visit to the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) to find new lighting solutions for our clients. With the help of the HKTDC business matching team, we have identified three potential suppliers of high bay lights, petrol station lights and etc. At the fair, we have found lighting frames which may be cheaper alternatives to lighting panels. We’ll talk to our clients after the fair, and it’s likely that we’ll place small orders for high bay lights and lighting frames. Competition in the Polish market is fierce. The Autumn Lighting Fair is a good place for us to look for new suppliers and new lighting solutions with better prices, helping us to maintain our competitiveness.”
Jaroslaw Potasznik, CEO, JP Inwest Sp. z o.o., Poland

As the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) is the largest show in Asia, I’ll try to come to the fair every year. The fair is more international than other similar shows in Asia because I can find different brands from different countries and regions here. At this year’s fair, I am happy to see that more and more exhibitors are showcasing smart lighting solutions. Russia is an emerging market for smart lighting because consumers in our country find it very convenient. Up till now, I have found several potential suppliers from the Chinese mainland and France for the supply of home lighting products and smart lighting solutions, and I’ll place orders next month.”
Anton Korolev, Manager, Reyteco Lab, Russia


“SmartRay specialises in the development of LED lighting solutions for agricultural, commercial, residential, industrial and decorative applications in North America. This is my third time attending the Autumn Lighting Fair. I find a niche market for grow lights in North America where daylight is insufficient for the desired plant growth. I am happy to have found a good supplier of grow lights at the fair and I’ll place my initial order worth US$100,000 with this supplier after the fair. As the market for grow lights has great potential, I’ll buy US$1 million worth of grow lights for the North American market each year. I like the Autumn Lighting Fair because it is the best show that I’ve ever seen. It is a professional lighting show where I can meet international exhibitors and find quality products. I’ll definitely come again next year to look for new products and new technologies.”
Nixon Chen, CEO, SmartRay Inc., Canada

Due to intensified competition in the commercial lighting sector, it is important for me to come to the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) every year because suppliers here offer high-quality products and competitive prices. At this year’s fair, I have found four to five new suppliers of LED bulbs, PCBs and LCD digital displays. I am going to buy US$100,000 worth of products from these new suppliers after the fair. I am also interested in lighting automation systems and will consider buying them.”
Basheer Pychikal, Director, StarsLine Electrical Equipments Trading LLC, UAE

This is my first time visiting the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) to look for new suppliers. I am happy to be here because there are a lot of beautiful designs, fashionable items and high-end products. I have found black and gold interior lighting designs which suit the tastes of our high-end customers. I am also interested in designer collections, party lighting and Christmas lighting. It’s a good show.”
