HK reports strong trade fair growth in 2005

Hong Kong is one of the few places in the world publishing detailed (and, we think, pretty accurate) statistics about its exhibitions industry. It has just released 2005 numbers and they show good growth in total space sales - up 9% - and very strong growth in visitor numbers - up 34%.

The city was still space-constrained for the period covered by these stats as AsiaWorld-Expo didn't open until December. We can expect really stunning numbers in 2006 as the existing fairs have been doing pretty well and many of the new ones at the new venue look pretty solid too.
