Global Sources' electronics tradeshow grows 19 percent

Global Sources‘ opened its fall electronics tradeshows in Hong Kong on October 12, with more than 3,900 supplier booths. Growing 19 percent from last year, the combined show wll be the largest electronics events ever for Global Sources. The Fairs run from October 12-15 at Hong Kong‘s AsiaWorld-Expo facility next to the airport.

The four co-located events are China Sourcing Fairs: Electronics & Components, Security Products, Solar & Energy Saving Products and the Korea Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components.

“Our focus on presenting the hottest product categories from quality-focused manufacturers continues to draw the world’s top buyers to Hong Kong every October,” said Tommy Wong, president of Global Sources Exhibitions. “This, in turn, is attracting more exhibitors to the shows, which have become a platform for export success in Asia‘s electronics industry.”

Among the tens of thousands of buyers pre-registered to attend the shows include Best Buy, Brookstone, CHUBB, Honeywell Security, JVC, LG Electronics, Mitsubishi, Philips, RadioShack, Samsung, Sanyo, Siemens, TEAC and Toshiba.

Suppliers from Greater China make up the largest contingent of exhibitors at the Fairs. In addition to those from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, manufacturers from other supply markets, including South Korea, Malaysia, Japan, India, the Philippines, Australia and Italy, are also taking part. 

“Participation at the shows is also increasing due to rapid sales growth in the consumer electronics industry,” said Wong. “Analysts from Consumer Electronics Association predicted global retail sales of consumer electronics devices are projected to top US $1 trillion in 2011. Similarly, in the first eight months of 2011, mainland China‘s mobile phones and accessories industry generated sales of US$53 billion, up by 38 percent from the same period a year earlier.”

Buyers and suppliers at the Fairs are able to benefit from specialized pavilions and services to help them trade more effectively. Selected pavilions for high-demand products have expanded and become the most comprehensive platforms for suppliers to market their hottest products.

The fall China Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components features Asia’s biggest in-car electronics and GPS pavilions and Hong Kong‘s largest computer products pavilion. The iProducts accessories pavilion, with over 180 booths, features the latest accessories for iPhones, iPads and related items – a hot category among buyers who are anxious to leverage the popularity for the products.

China Sourcing Fair: Security Products features pavilions for access controls & RFID, alarms, CCTV and digital surveillance, home and system integration and fire and safety products. China Sourcing Fair: Solar & Energy Saving Products features energy-efficient lighting and accessories, LED displays and commercial lighting and solar and wind power products pavilions.

Private Sourcing Events are another highlight of the October Fairs, offering exclusive opportunities for pre-selected exhibitors to meet large global companies in private during the shows. A record-breaking 21 sourcing teams of buyers are scheduled to participate.

To boost sourcing productivity for buyers and exhibition investment for suppliers, the complete China Sourcing Fair series in Hong Kong this October will also be complemented by respective online shows.
