Hong Kong Stationery Fair branches out


Organisers of the 18th edition of the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair claim this year's event will be at the forefront of the stationery and office supplies industry, by bringing together leading brands, unrivalled product collections and business ideas.

Running from 8 -11 January 2018 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the fair will welcome more than 250 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors from 14 countries and regions, including Bangladesh, the Chinese mainland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, the US and Vietnam.

To highlight the latest stationery and office supplies trends across the most significant manufacturing hubs and markets in Asia, the 2018 fair will continue to feature a number of international pavilions.

Judy Cheung, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai), said many more like-minded product developments will be on display at the fair, which reflects consumers' evolving needs.

"With the world's growing desire to reduce its carbon footprint, there has subsequently been a huge consumer drive for products that offer more sustainability credentials, as well as those which truly demonstrate innovation. For the stationery and office supplies industry, our goal is to demonstrate how this drive can unlock more business opportunities at the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair, and take the show's participants into the future of stationery production, she said
