Show offers chance to stock up on toys, gifts & houseware before Christmas
Story 11 - Review

FAST-CHANGING trends in gifts, toys and houseware and shorter products cycles have contributed to the success of the fifth edition of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) Summer
Sourcing Show for Gifts, Houseware and Toys held in Hong Kong last month.

The other main reason the show attracted more than 18,890 buyers from all over the world was the ability of the sellers to fulfil orders in time for the year-end festive-selling season.

The sourcing show, held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 2-5, did encompass the three pillars of festive-season retail success — toys, giftware and houseware.

Jeffrey Lam, chairman of the Fair Organising Committee, declared: “In a time of shorter product cycles and fastchanging trends, the show has carved out a strong position for itself in just a few years by offering buyers a last-minute sourcing opportunity for the festive season.

“The show is also the best place to source products from Asian suppliers.”
