Hong Kong Ramps Up for Spring 2020 Electronics Fair & Expo
The annual Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition) and International ICT Expo will be held concurrently at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 13 to 16. Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the co-located fairs are marking their 17th edition in 2020, and will provide an international platform for exhibitors to showcase the latest electronics, cutting-edge technology and ICT solutions to global buyers. In 2019, the twin fairs welcomed more than 100,000 buyers from 153 countries and regions.
Returning to the fairs is the perennially popular Startup Zone, featuring innovations across categories such as Apps, IoT, Consumer Tech, eHealth, Robotics and Digital Business. To help start-ups gain exposure and meet potential investors, a series of start-up-themed events including Smart Launch sessions, pitching sessions, media pitch day and investment matchmaking sessions will be organized, says HKTDC.
As Asia’s largest Spring electronics event, the Electronics Fair will feature the Tech Hall with five thematic zones: AIoT & Voice Recognition, Connected Home, e-Health & Wearables, Robotics & Unmanned Tech and XR (Extended Reality). Another highlighted zone is the Hall of Fame, which will showcase internationally renowned brands. Last year, among these brands were Garmin, Bourgini, Desay, Greatwall, HKC, Roadrover and SKROSS.
A series of events being planned for the Fair, as of press time, include a one-day anchor conference, “Tech Trends Symposium.” Under the theme of “Connecting Vision to Reality,” the Symposium will discuss the latest technology and application trends in AI and voice recognition technology, robotics, connected home and wise living, and wearable technology, as well as Mixed Reality (MR).
Running concurrently with the Spring Electronics Fair, the ICT Expo is the leading event for cutting-edge smart city solutions and ICT technologies across all sectors. Under the theme “Propelling Growth with Smart Economy,” the Expo will showcase a range of smart city solutions in four key areas: “Digital Business,” “Governance & Infrastructure,” “Smart Living” and “Transportation & Mobility.”
