Breaking News: January Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair postponed

Published on: 12th October 2020

Following consultation with industry representatives and key stakeholders, it has been decided that the Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and the Baby Products Fair will now be held in April. 

New dates have been announced for the Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and the Baby Products Fair as the coronavirus pandemic continues to cause disruption to the trade show calendar.

In a statement on the website, the show organiser, Hong Kong Trade Development Council, said: “In view of the pandemic situation, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has implemented various disease prevention and control measures and restrictions on incoming visitors, while many countries and regions have also issued travel alerts and implemented quarantine measures. These mean that overseas exhibitors and buyers will have great difficulty joining the HKTDC Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and the HKTDC Hong Kong Baby Products Fair, originally scheduled for 11th-14th January 2021.

After consultation with industry representatives and key stakeholders, a decision has been made to reschedule the above two fairs to 27th-30th April 2021 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, coinciding with the HKTDC Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair. The concurrent Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair and DeLuxe PrintPack Hong Kong, jointly organised by the HKTDC and CIEC Exhibition Company (HK), will be held at AsiaWorld-Expo.

Meanwhile, the business matching and virtual meeting features offered by the HKTDC Autumn Sourcing Week丨Online (16th to 27th November 2020) will continue to assist global exhibitors and buyers overcome some of the challenges during these trying times. When the pandemic situation improves and circumstances allow, the HKTDC will resume physical exhibitions to help global buyers and sellers do business.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to exhibitors, group pavilions, industry associations and buyers from around the world for their tremendous support for HKTDC events. We will continue to make every effort to help companies capture business opportunities through different platforms.
