The eighth edition of HKTDC Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair will be held from April 20-23, 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, alongside with HKTDC Hong Kong Houseware Fair, Asia’s leading event of its kind. The twin fairs will showcase a comprehensive selection of household and textile products to cater to the needs of worldwide buyers.
This year, Home Textiles and Furnishings fair gathers over 280 exhibitors from five countries and regions, presenting a wide range of household textile items including furnishings, bedding, curtains, carpets and towels. In 2016, the fair attracted over 18,000 buyers from 107 countries and regions. An impressive line-up of group pavilions from the Chinese mainland and India, including three textile industry associations from India: Handloom Export Promotion Council (HEPC), Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) and Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC), will participate. The Pavilion from Jiangsu Nantong, dubbed ‘The Hometown of Textiles’ in the Chinese mainland, will return to showcase its quality textiles.
Meeting point of top brands
‘Hall of Glamour’, the premium zone for fair, features sophisticated and design-driven furnishings and household textile products, as well as top-notch designer collections, covering bedding, curtains, carpets and towels. Branded collections include J-Tex from Hong Kong, Marushin from Japan and Shiv Shakti Exports from India.
The fair features seven themed zones with clear product categories for easy and convenient sourcing. Besides ‘Hall of Glamour’, the themed zones include: ‘Baby & Bedroom textiles’, ‘Bathroom & Kitchen textiles’, ‘Carpet & Floor Coverings’, ‘Design Solutions and Trade Services’, ‘Upholstery & Furnishing Products’ and ‘Window Fashion & Accessories’.
In view of the growing green consciousness, consumers particularly in developed markets like Japan, the US and West Europe, are enthusiastic about eco-friendly properties of natural fibres. To cater to the surging demand, the fair put emphasis on environmentally friendly and sustainable products. Exhibitors showcasing green products or hotel supplies will be labelled accordingly for effective sourcing.
A series of activities will be held during the fair to facilitate market information exchange. The Product Demo and Launch Pad session provides suppliers with golden opportunities to introduce their latest products in an interactive and relaxing atmosphere. Industry players can stay abreast of forthcoming design trends and market updates at the forums or seminars on hot industry issues.
Concurrent Fair, an added opportunity
Held concurrently is the HKTDC Hong Kong Houseware Fair. With household-related products put under one roof, the twin fairs will generate natural synergistic effect, which opens up opportunities to exhibitors and buyers worldwide.
