Fairs Draw Buyers from Across Globe


Innovation and technology in general, and smart cities in particular, were high on the agenda in April as exhibitors and buyers from all over the world flocked to Hong Kong to take part in seven fairs organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) in the peak season for expos.

More than 12,300 exhibitors gathered in Hong Kong for the seven HKTDC trade fairs in April, with over 9,500 coming from Mainland China and overseas. The fairs attracted more than 236,000 buyers from 181 countries and regions, up 2% year-on-year. The number of buyers from the mainland and overseas was 140,000-plus, an increase of 4.5% compared to the previous year and representing about 60% of the overall turnout.
