Spring Electronics Fair and ICT Expo Open Next Wednesday
New and Innovative Products and Technology to be Showcased

8 April 2016 – More than 3,400 exhibitors from 24 countries and regions will take part in two major trade fairs opening on 13 April (Wednesday), and continuing through 16 April, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the 13th HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition) and the 13th HKTDC International ICT Expo will feature smart products, creative local designs as well as innovative technology and solutions.

High-tech in focus
The HKSAR Government’s latest Budget for 2016/17 specifically promotes smart production and research. As the market is highly interested in robotic applications, the “Robotics & Unmanned Tech” zone is expected to be a focal point of the fair, presenting the latest remote-controlled gadgets from airborne cameras to smart robots.

Given the rapid developments in the application of Internet of Things (IoT) technology, the “Connected Home” zone will return to the fair, displaying a wide range of smart home automation products with IoT applications. The fair will also present a new “iAccessories” area, featuring a wide spectrum of accessories for mobile and smart devices.

Global brands and insights
Hall of Fame, one of the highlights of the Electronics Fair, will gather more than 570 international leading brands, including Bigben, Bourgini, Desay, Haier, Hubble, Hyundai, Intel, Motorola, Polaroid, and together with local brands such as Momax and Odoyo. During the fair, the HKTDC will organise a series of industry seminars, Product Demo & Launch Pad sessions, Buyer Forums and networking events that spotlight the latest consumer trends for the electronics industry, including a session by Microsoft Corporation on Virtual Reality. Industry experts including Intel Corporation will also analyse the impact of wearable electronics on healthcare and lifestyle trends, and provide insights into how the recent “Maker” culture can expand the horizons of the robotics industry.

International ICT Expo
The concurrent International ICT Expo will present a new E-Commerce zone that showcases a range of e-commerce technology and related services. The Apps Zone gathers latest mobile Apps from various local tertiary institutions. And the Office of Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) will present an “iStartup@HK” area to showcase products and solutions from local start-ups. Meanwhile, an on-site SME IT Clinic will offer free professional consultation services led by representatives of leading IT corporations including Alibaba and Yahoo.

One of the highlights at the ICT Expo is the Internet Economy Summit on 13 April, which will provide a platform for celebrated industry experts and leaders of innovative technology enterprises to interact and share insights. The Summit features topical issues shaping the Internet economy such as global technology trends, Big Data and IoT, and Internet-led economic growth in the Chinese mainland and beyond. Invited speakers are renowned experts from ICT enterprises such as Alibaba Group, Facebook, Microsoft and Xiaomi, among others.
