The 10th Hong Kong Baby Products Fair (HKBPF) ended on 10 January 2019. Almost 21,800 buyers visited the fair. More than 610 exhibitors from 29 countries presented their products.

“We recorded an increase in visitor numbers from a number of countries for the International Toy, Baby Product and Stationery Fair. These include developed markets such as Australia, Germany and the United States. But also emerging markets such as Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Poland and Vietnam. The number of Chinese buyers on the mainland recorded double-digit growth,” says Benjamin Chau, Deputy Executive Director of the Honk Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). Chau continues: “The HKTDC will continue to be an international trading and exchange platform for industry experts to create more business opportunities for all.”

HKBPF presented new areas, seminars and conferences

The latest edition of the Baby Products Fair featured the Baby Tech Zone and the newly introduced Maternity Zone.
During the fairs, several thematic seminars and a conference were held to facilitate the industry exchange. These included “The Hong Kong Toys Industry Conference 2019”, “Smart Tech & DIY Toys – What’s New”, “Toy Safety & Regulations Updates”, “Toys Compliance, Testing & Certification”, “Insight into the Upcoming Stationery Trends” and “Digital Marketing: Innovation Key to Success.”

New Exhibition Online platform launched

To encourage suppliers to take advantage of online to offline (O2O) advertising opportunities, the HKTDC has expanded the procurement function of its exhibition websites by launching the year-round Exhibition Online platform. The platform not only provides trade show updates and the latest industry sourcing information, but also allows suppliers to stay in touch with global buyers after trade shows, while buyers can easily source industry-specific products from dedicated trade show websites.

HKBPF: Exhibitors and buyers satisfied

“This is our debut at the HKTDC to find distributors in other markets and expand our worldwide distribution. We have received serious enquiries from many buyers. These include customers from Thailand, the Philippines, Korea, Indonesia and Singapore. We are ready to work with them to distribute our products in their markets. We are very impressed with the show. It is very beneficial for our expansion. We would like to come back next year to maintain our presence and introduce more new products”, praises Giuliano Di Napoli, CEO of Austide International Trade Pty Ltd.

“This is my second visit to the HKTDC. There is an amazing mix of products on offer. I have already found more than ten potential suppliers. They offer many good items such as baby carriages for newborns, bathtubs, car seats, milk shakers, bottle sterilizers and pillows. We will have further discussions with them to close the deal. I will definitely place orders to expand our offer. This is an excellent show that attracts various buyers from around the world to explore the business relationships here. I am very satisfied with what I have found here”, sums up Tatjana Butskaya, Manager of Lapsi.
