Hong Kong, 17th August: Earlier this week, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) concluded four lifestyle fairs, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) drawing nearly 500,000 visitors.

The four fairs were the 28th Food Expo, the 9th Hong Kong International Tea Fair, the 4th Home Delights Expo, and 2nd Beauty & Wellness Expo. The concurrent events featured more than 2,000 exhibitors from 29 countries and regions. According to the HKTDC, Japan was the “Partner Country” of this year’s edition of the Food Expo. The event featured over 330 Japanese exhibitors from 36 prefectures.

In addition, jointly organised by the HKTDC and the Modernized Chinese Medicine International Association (MCMIA), the International Conference of Modernization Chinese Medicine & Health Products (ICMCM) ran concurrently with the four fairs.

HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau, commented, “The four summer fairs provide one-stop shopping and sourcing experience for consumers and trade buyers, as well as an ideal promotion platform for exhibitors. The atmosphere at the concurrent fairs was very vibrant this year. Open to industry players from 17-19 August, the Trade Hall at the Food Expo attracted close to 21,000 buyers, up one per cent compared to last year.”
