Hong Kong fairs get 2018 off to a flyer

Baby Products Fair attracts close to 33,000 buyers; Toys & Games Fair sees more than 49,000.

The first trade shows of the year have been hailed a success, with both the Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and the Baby Products Fair attracting strong visitor numbers.

Together with the Hong Kong International Licensing Show and the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair, the first four fairs organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) this year attracted around 126,000 buyers – up some 6% over the previous year.

More than 49,000 buyers went to the Toys & Games Fair, while close to 33,000 and around 21,000 buyers visited the Baby Products Fair and Stationery Fair respectively.

In addition, more than 22,000 visitors attended the Licensing Show.

The fairs all featured an assortment of new products, designs and educational toys, as well as smart baby products.

As an example, Italian exhibitor Pali S.p.A. joined the Baby Products Fair for the second consecutive year. Claudio Biferali, the company’s research and development manager, said Pali is a leading baby products brand in Italy that provides a wide range of quality wooden cots, strollers and highchairs.

He said the company doubled its booth size this year with more products on offer, and the response was better than last year. It attracted strong interest from existing customers and new buyers from different markets, like Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and Ukraine. He expected to conclude more business deals this year.
