Hong Kong International Stationery Fair opens on 11 January
Jan 07, 2016

Buyers will be able to have a more satisfying sourcing work at the onset of 2016 by taking advantage of Hong Kong International <Stationery Fair. The show is consistently regarded as one of the preeminent and preferred platforms serving the stationery and office supplies industry in Asia Pacific. Held from 11 – 14 January 2016 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the 16th edition is hosting more than 230 quality exhibitors from 15 countries and regions from all over the world. These are the British Virgin Islands, the Chinese mainland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.

In addition, with a strong foundation already established in the industry in Asia Pacific, exhibitors from Korea, Taiwan and Thailand have again formed pavilions at this year’s show. They are organised by influential industry organisations: Korea International Trade Association, the Taiwan Association of Stationery Industries and the Thai Stationeries & Office Supplies Association.

Year after year, Hong Kong International Stationery Fair offers a compelling gateway for international buyers to do sourcing and explore new business opportunities due to the burgeoning Asia Pacific market as well as the positive impact resulted from the easing of one-child policy in the Chinese mainland. Also, it is the priority platform for a growing number of leading and emerging brands as well as well-established companies which have chosen the show to promote their brands and demonstrate their innovative designs and quality products. Those joining the show in different product categories include 3+ Magi Mags and Le-Seal for gift stationery; MR Pen for pen & paper products; Dr. Kong, Fueki, Golden King-Arts, KIKY, Magruba and Mirage for kids & school items; Flamingo, Inozto and O-LIFE for smart office items and LUNA for DIY supplies.

From the perspective of buyers, sourcing for products and navigating for the right suppliers is efficient and easy during the four-day event due to the effective product zoning. The fairground is clearly divided into DIY Supplies, Pen & Paper, Gift Stationery, Smart Office and Kids & School, providing a one-stop sourcing platform for local and international buyers.

One of the show spotlights will be placed on the new “Slick and Smart” display area located at the entrance of Hall 5B and it will undoubtedly draw huge attention. The show organisers, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) have carefully nominated 27 stationery items which feature intelligent designs and practical functions. Audience will be thrilled by their high level of capability.

Various forums and seminars demonstrate momentum of the show

With a top line-up of speakers and most talked-about topics, the fringe programme running alongside the show promises to be informative and inspiring. To name a few, the Sharing Session on: Business Opportunities in Taiwan Market will be hosted by Mr Lin Chung Jen, General Editor for Book & Stationery Magazine. The audience will be able to fully obtain the latest industry trends in the market for mapping out business plans.

As a continuously evolving and diverse industry, it is crucial to ensure the business will stay competitive in a global market. The seminar on “Push your Business Forward - Catch the Latest Design Trends and E-Business Strategies” is the solution to stay on track. Elites from multinational companies will offer profound insights into the 2016 design trends. Also, discussions will be centred on how to master the digital age. Speakers include Ms Consuelo Romeo, APAC Brand and Marketing Manager for Moleskine, Mr Raymond Leung, VP of Sales and Client Services for cherrypicks and Mr Stone IP, Founder of HisTrend.HK.
