Houseware & Home Textiles Fairs Open Next Friday
High-Quality Home Products from 2,
600+ Exhibitors on Show

12 April 2018 – The 33rd HKTDC Hong Kong Houseware Fair and the ninth HKTDC Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair will open next Friday (20 April) and continue through 23 April at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The two fairs are expected to attract more than 2,600 exhibitors from 26 countries and regions, making it an ideal platform for companies to explore business opportunities in the housewares, home textiles and furnishings sectors.

Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Under Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Bernard Chan will be the Guest of Honour at the Joint Networking Reception for the fairs and the Celebration Ceremony for the Hong Kong Smart Design Awards 2018 (Home and Houseware Category), to be held on 20 April.

In view of last year’s encouraging response, the main theme for this year’s fair will continue to be “L.I.F.E”, standing for Lifestyle, Interior, Feast and Enrich, the show’s four major themed zones. Meanwhile, highlight zones will include the Hall of Elegance, World of Fine Dining, World of Fine Décor and Best of ASEAN, as the World of Building & Hardware and the Startup zone will also return. Start-ups, which are essential for the sustained development of an economy, will be in focus at this year’s Houseware Fair. The show will feature start-ups from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and first-time participating country Bangladesh. Start-ups can discover further business opportunities by presenting their products and business ideas to buyers and investors at “Startup.Smart Launch” sessions at the two fairs.

To highlight the fair themes, the HKTDC will collaborate with NellyRodi, a well-known Paris-based trend-forecasting agency, to present four trend concept displays. A trend seminar will also be organised to unveil housewares trends for summer 2019. Furthermore, the two fairs will feature Product Demo & Launch Pad sessions, International Kitchenette and Latte Art performances, as well as a series of seminars exploring technology trends in the building industry and testing, certification and inspection services for houseware products.

A media tour of the fairs will be held on 20 April to spotlight selected interesting products.
