World’s Largest Gifts Fair Opens Next Thursday
International Printing & Packaging Fair Set for AsiaWorld-Expo

20 April 2017 – The world’s largest gifts fair, the 32nd HKTDC Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair, will open next Thursday (27 April) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The fair will welcome more than 4,300 exhibitors from 31 countries and regions, showcasing a wide range of products including corporate gifts, green gifts, tech gifts, fashion jewellery and accessories, as well as party and festive items. A new “Startup Zone” as well as the “Licensed Gifts” and “Hair Ornament & Accessories” zones will debut at the fair.

The Hong Kong Exporters’ Association will set up a pavilion comprising three themed zones, “Smart Design Village”, “Brand Oasis” and “Isle of Originality” at the fair to showcase quality products from Hong Kong companies to global buyers. Winning entries from the Hong Kong Smart Design Awards will be on display to present innovative local designs to buyers.

Jointly organised with CIEC Exhibition Company (HK) Ltd, the 12th Printing & Packaging Fair will be held concurrently with the Gifts & Premium Fair at AsiaWorld-Expo, and will welcome more than 430 exhibitors from seven countries and regions. Two new zones – “Innovative Retail Display Solutions” and “Printing and Packaging Solutions for Fashion & Accessories” – will be launched this year. Other highlighted zones include “Green Printing & Packaging Solutions” and “De Luxe Zone”, which will present high-end packaging products.
