Hall of Aurora
At the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition), we have met with more than 100 new buyers from Eastern Europe, France, Germany, India, Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam, exceeding our expectations.
We have established connections with more than 60 new buyers from Europe and the US. Three new buyers have taken our samples for testing while five to six new buyers have asked us to prepare samples based on their specifications. Meanwhile, our colleagues in Mainland China have arranged online meetings with overseas buyers through the HKTDC’s Click2Match platform. Exhibition+ integrating both online and offline formats allows us to grasp more business opportunities.
I am pleased to have a chance to visit the fair again in person this year. I have found two potential suppliers of tri-proof lights and garden lights. I’ll probably do business with the tri-proof light supplier from Mainland China and plan to place an order for US$1 million worth of tri-proof lights next year.
Lighting suppliers who are exhibiting here are more reliable. I have found four to five potential suppliers of street lighting which provide good quality. I have also made use of the HKTDC’s Click2Match platform to set up online meetings with more suppliers from Mainland China. It’s good to have Exhibition+ which allows me to meet with suppliers through both online and offline formats.
