The fair organiser, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will hold a press conference on 26 March to announce details of the three fairs and share insights into the export performance and market trends for the industries. A selection of creative products will be previewed at the press conference.

The 15th edition of the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition), Asia’s largest event of its kind, and International ICT Expo, will be held from 13 to 16 April, with approximately 3,500 exhibitors taking part. The Startup zone will return to the fairs to showcase innovative technology and services developed by start-ups from Hong Kong and further afield. The Spring Electronics Fair will once again feature the popular Tech Hall displaying hi-tech products in four thematic zones: Connected Home, Robotics & Unmanned Tech, Virtual Reality (VR) and Wearable Electronics. The concurrent International ICT Expo will spotlight the latest ICT products and solutions for various industries. This year, the Expo will adopt the theme "Smart City: The Way of the Future", and a Smart City zone will be launched to present a range of solutions and applications for the development of smart cities.

Meanwhile, the 10th Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition) will take place from 6 to 9 April. Expected to gather nearly 1,340 exhibitors, the fair will introduce four new zones -- Horticulture Lighting, Residential Lighting, Technical Lighting and Urban & Architectural Lighting. The Smart Lighting & Solutions Zone will continue to respond to the prevalence of Internet of Things (IoT) technology by showcasing the latest smart and remote-control lighting systems and products. Other highlight zones include the Hall of Aurora, LED & Green Lighting and Advertising Display Lighting, which will feature a wide variety of lighting products, technologies and solutions, offering plenty of business opportunities to buyers from around the world.
