HKTDC’s April fairs hosted 11,000 exhibitors

News this week: Last month, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) organised a total of seven trade fairs which set a new record for exhibitor and buyer numbers – attracting more than 11,000 exhibitors and 221,000 buyers during April.

According to the HKTDC, a total of 6,907 exhibitors and 126,000 buyers were from overseas. The HKTDC reported buyers from Asia increased 7.5% year-on-year, and buyers from North America and Europe also showed positive results.

HKTDC’s deputy executive director Benjamin Chau said, “The enlarged scale of the fairs increased business opportunities for the exhibition industry, as well as for the exhibitors and buyers. More business was also generated in industries such as logistics, security, marketing, translation, hotels, and food and beverage.”
