A Buyer Forum on “Business Opportunities in Middle East Market” was well received
HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau said: “We saw vibrant trading and networking on the fairground and observed that buyers were interested in green lighting products, such as LEDs, as well as smart lighting fixtures.” The HKTDC commissioned an independent survey agency to conduct onsite surveys, interviewing buyers and exhibitors about their views on market prospects.
The HKTDC organised a series of events during the fair, including exhibitor forums, seminars and networking activities, for industry professionals to gather and exchange market intelligence. Hong Kong exhibitor, Matchhere Hong Kong Limited, introduced a lamp shade manufactured using a 3D printing machine
“According to the preliminary results, over 85 per cent of buyers and exhibitors expect overall sales to improve or remain the same next year, ” Mr Chau said. “The industry is generally optimistic about the prospects of LED lighting products and expects several LED applications to lead growth in areas including Indoor Lighting (Household, Commercial use), Outdoor Lighting and Smart Lighting Systems.”
The winning and shortlisted works from the Hong Kong Lighting Design Competition were displayed at the Lighting Fair, giving local designers a chance to showcase their creativity to international buyers
