HKTDC Food Expo sets visitor and exhibitor records

News this week: The 22nd Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) Food Expo 2011, which ran from 11th to 15th August, has posted a record number of visitors this year, with 380,000 visiting the show – a 3% increase over the previous edition in 2010. The Food Expo 2011 featured a Gourmet Zone for the first time. The zone showcased premium food and processing products from around the world, including products form Belgium, France, Spain, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

Benjamin Chau, deputy executive director of the HKTDC was quoted saying, “This year, given rising inflation, the special discounts offered by exhibitors helped attract visitors. In addition, the concurrently held Hong Kong International Tea Fair and the ICMCM, organised by the HKTDC and the Modernised Chinese Medicine International Association, also helped attract buyers and visitors.”
