    President of Global Sources Exhibitions, Tommy Wong, said: "Our Fairs are the most specialized in Hong Kong, which help buyers source more efficiently by presenting them with a wide range of suppliers from specific industries.

    "This year, we have added new events to provide buyers with very focused business opportunities in two high-demand sourcing categories.

    "While China remains the top market for gift and premium items, buyers today are looking for alternative sources offering quality products at a fair price. South Korean suppliers are extremely competitive in the industry. And so we have launched Korea Sourcing Fair: Gifts & Premiums this year to give buyers more options.

    "We have also launched the China Sourcing Fair: Medical & Health Products. Aging populations in developed countries prefer in-home care over institutionalized care and, therefore, the homecare products market is growing fast. In the US, sales of homecare products are expected to reach US$10 billion in 2011."

    Buyers pre-registered to attend the Fairs include American Greetings, Boots, Carlsberg, City Super, Coles Group, Early Learning Centre, El Corte Ingles, Fossil, Hallmark Cards, Hong Kong Disneyland, Kingfisher, Le Chateau, Macy's, MATTEL, Office Depot, Sears, Swarovski, Tesco, The Children's Place, The Home Depot, ToysRus and UNY.

    Private Sourcing Events offer exclusive opportunities for pre-selected exhibitors to meet large global companies in private during the shows. A record breaking of 24 sourcing teams from buyers include AEON, Amway, Hermes-Otto International, IASACORP, E.Leclerc, Eximagen, Groupe Zannier, Kmart Australia, Mothercare Group, Staples and The Home Depot are scheduled to participate in this April's events, with a combined annual sales of over US$170 billion.

    To help buyers and exhibitors meet and do business more effectively, Global Sources is organizing a series of special on-site activities at the Fairs. These include:

  • Free conference programs to help international buyers source from Asia more effectively. Attendees can gain firsthand market intelligence and valuable advice from industry experts speaking on a variety of trade-related topics.
  • Color Trends Areas feature color forecasts for various products, including home products and gifts and premiums in Hall 11.
  • Sports & Event Premiums Gallery. A selection of a hundred hot sports and event premiums is featured in this gallery in Hall 6.
  • Special Buyers' Lounges at the Fairs provide free Internet access and sourcing information.
  • Global Sources Product Galleries. Multiple physical and digital product galleries, featuring innovative products from hundreds of verified suppliers unable to attend the shows, allow buyers to send direct inquiries on the spot -- greatly extending their sourcing reach and efficiency at the shows.
  • Global Sources Show Guide Magazines. Fourteen enhanced sourcing magazines that incorporate the Fair show guides -- featuring the exhibitor list and floor map -- and a CD-ROM that contains a copy of all Global Sources' eMagazines, are being distributed to buyers on-site. This one-of-a-kind initiative puts in buyers' hands information on hundreds of additional verified suppliers and their products, boosting the productivity of their show visit.

  • Opening times for the Fairs are:

  • April 20-22 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • April 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
