Asia's Largest Spring Electronics and ICT Fairs Open
Spotlighting Leading Technology, Start-ups and Smart City

BriefingWire.com, 4/16/2018 - HONG KONG - (ACN Newswire) - Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition) and the International ICT Expo opened today and continue through 16 April at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), featuring more than 3,500 exhibitors from 25 countries and regions. The two fairs showcase the latest electronics, cutting-edge technology and ICT solutions from around the world.

The HKTDC has organised more than 180 buying missions, comprising over 13,000 representatives from 9,500 companies to visit the two fairs. They include major global importers, distributors and retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart from the United States, Canadian Tire from Canada, and Carrefour from France.

With innovation and technology driving social development and economic growth, as well as improving quality of life, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau said there is keen demand for new high-end technologies and products in the global market.

"The Spring Electronics Fair and ICT Expo are both must-go annual exhibitions for the industry, which help foster many business cooperation. Since last year, the HKTDC launched a dedicated Startup zone to provide a platform for new start-ups to present ideas to global buyers and potential investors, grasping business opportunities and exploring overseas markets," said Mr Chau.

Startup zone helps start-ups go overseas --

Located at Halls 3FG concourse, the Startup zone gathers 110 start-ups from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan and the United States to present innovative technologies to global buyers. Some of the creative products include: a smart eyeshade with special sensors that capture the user's brainwaves during sleep and selects music to play via a mobile app based on the user's mood (Booth: 3CON-B15); a smart LED lamp with a patented air-purification technology (Booth: 3CON-B16); equipped with a 360 degrees 3D scanning feature, a printer that uses light emitted from smart devices to print 3D designs in open air, allowing users to see the printing process (Booth: 3CON-B23); and electronic socks made for babies to monitor the infant's vital signs such as blood oxygen level, heart rate and body temperature (Booth: 3CON-B18) (Zone details: https://goo.gl/1YH5iz).

To help start-ups gain exposure and meet potential investors, a series of start-up themed events, including Smart Launch sessions, pitching sessions, media pitch day and investment matchmaking sessions have been organised in collaboration with start-up accelerators and incubators, including Angel Investment Foundation, Backer, Hello Reporter, Hong Kong Business Angel Network, HSBC, Incu-Lab, Jumpstart magazine, Qianhai International Liaison Services, StartHub and Techstars. Sharing sessions and mentoring sessions are also being staged, where successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, start-up accelerators and incubators share entrepreneurial insights on market promotion, finding manufacturing partners, and crowdfunding.
