Hong Kong Mega Show aims to raise the sourcing bar this October

Published on: 6th June 2019

From October 20th-23rd and 27th-29th, Hong Kong will host over 4,000 companies based in Asia and abroad.

This October, over 50,000 attendees will visit Hong Kong to compare and select some of the best retail consumer products available in the market.

From October 20th-23rd, the Asian Toys and Baby Products show, the Asian Festive, Christmas and Seasonal Show and the new Asian Sporting Goods Show will run concurrently alongside a further two trade events including the Asian Gifts and Premiums Show. October 27th-29th will then play host to a further three concurrent shows including the Asian Stationery Show. All shows take place at the downtown venue, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In 2018, over 33 countries were represented by 3,972 companies during the Mega Show Series, as it’s known, whilst the 51,000 buyers originated from 132 countries. This attendance helped cement its market position as a leading global sourcing event and as vital buying and selling platform during the Southern China autumn sourcing season.

In addition to suppliers based in Asian countries, buyers can meet with suppliers from Australia, Bangladesh, China, Czech Republic, France, Guatemala, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Myanmar, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Sri Lanka, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Poland, The Philippines, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UK, USA and Vietnam. There are official country pavilions from Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, UK and Turkey.

Registration for professional trade buyers is available online, and a special sponsorship programme is available for international buyers. Full details and application forms are available on the show’s website.
