More than 6,700 exhibitors from 46 counties and regions are expected to take part in four major trade fairs this month. The HKTDC Hong Kong Houseware Fair and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Home Textiles & Furnishings Fair open this Saturday (20 April) and continue through 23 April at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The HKTDC Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair, at the HKCEC, and the Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair, at AsiaWorld-Expo, will run from 27 April to 30 April.

ASEAN Pavilion at Houseware Fair

The 28th edition of the Hong Kong Houseware Fair, the largest fair of its kind in Asia, will host more than 2,000 exhibitors from 34 countries and regions, including newcomer Slovenia. The fair will feature 17 group pavilions, including the ASEAN Select pavilion, with about 80 exhibitors showcasing products from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
