More than 19,000 buyers attended the ninth edition of the Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair, a dedicated sourcing platform and an information exchange hub for home textiles. Over 300 exhibitors from nine countries and regions, with new exhibitors from Pakistan showcased their products at the four-day international fair.

"Hong Kong has long been a cradle for entrepreneurs. Our innovative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit, which have contributed greatly to Hong Kong’s economic success, are crucial for the city’s future. We also organised a number of 'Startup•Smart Launch' sessions for start-ups to present their business ideas and explore opportunities," said HKTDC acting executive director Benjamin Chau.

The Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair adopted the 'Interior' theme and showcased a variety of home textiles, upholstery and furnishing products. Highlight zones included the Hall of Glamour spotlighting quality brands and designer collections, Baby and Bedroom Textiles, Bathroom and Kitchen Textiles and Upholstery and Furnishing. Indian and the Chinese mainland set up a number of dedicated pavilions to showcase their products.

To facilitate business matching and networking, a series of activities were held at the fair, including Product Demo and Launch Pad sessions, where suppliers introduced their latest products to buyers in an interactive and relaxing atmosphere. It was an opportunity for the participants to stay updated with the latest market trends and updates at the forums and seminars held by experienced professionals and experts in the industry. (RR)
