Gifts & Premium Fair returns to Hong Kong
After a three-year hiatus, the Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair is back in its full physical form at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Held from 19 to 22 April, the fair will run concurrently with six other events including Home InStyle (formerly the Hong Kong Houseware Fair), the Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair and Fashion InStyle (formerly Hong Kong Fashion Week) as well as the Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair, the Hong Kong International Licensing Show and Asian Licensing Conference.
“Since Hong Kong returned to normality, the HKTDC has organised several large-scale trade fairs and forums,” says deputy executive director, Sophia Chong.
“Both domestic and international exhibitors and buyers showed support by attending the events physically, which is very encouraging.
“This time, the six major exhibitions attract over 3,800 exhibitors from 23 countries and regions, with 70 per cent being non-local exhibitors who will participate in person. More than 20 international licensing leaders will also join the Asian Licensing Conference.”
The Gifts & Premium Fair and Home InStyle will feature a brand-new Cultural & Creative Corner, promoting designer brands and products with unique styles. Additionally, the Gifts & Premium Fair will feature pavilions from a range of countries and regions including Mainland China and South Korea.
At Home InStyle, the Industrial Designers Society of Hong Kong (IDSHK) will feature 12 exhibitors and present multiple design-led crossover product series from the ReMIX Program covering lifestyle items, accessories-decorations, electronic devices, furniture and household essentials.
Further, the Hall of Fine Designs returns to the Gifts & Premium Fair as well as the Hong Kong Smart Design Awards pavilion.
“Hong Kong is a unique, creative and cultural hub where east meets west and the city always excels in creativity,” Chong adds.
“The HKTDC has been committed to promoting creative and design industries, help develop Hong Kong as Asia’s city of culture and creativity. This year, the HKTDC gathers a number of large-scale exhibitions in April, covering lifestyle products and licensing to strengthen cross-industry and cross-field cooperation, creating even greater synergy to the industries.”
