Hong Kong Electronics Fair and electronicAsia to Open Next Week
International Lighting Fair and debut International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo to be held in late October

HONG KONG, Oct 5, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - The annual Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) and electronicAsia will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 13 to 16 October. The 36th Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) is organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), while the 20th electronicAsia is jointly organised by the HKTDC and MMI Asia Pte Ltd.

The annual Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) and electronicAsia will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 13 to 16 October.

Also this month, the 18th Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) (27-30 October) and the inaugural Hong Kong International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo (26-29 October) will take place at the HKCEC and AsiaWorld-Expo respectively. Both events are organised by the HKTDC.

"Facing global economic uncertainties, Hong Kong's exporter confidence is stabilising, according to the HKTDC's latest Export Index for the third quarter of 2016, but exporters remain pessimistic about their performance in the near-term," said Benjamin Chau, Acting Executive Director, HKTDC.

"The HKTDC is strengthening the content of our trade fairs to help exporters reach more buyers and compete for orders. We also see that the electronics and lighting industries are taking measures to raise their competitiveness by developing products with new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) to stand out from the crowd and grasp business opportunities."

Electronics Fair's Tech Hall features new Virtual Reality and Startup zones

As the world's largest electronics marketplace, the Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) and electronicAsia will feature more than 4,100 exhibitors from 29 countries and regions. At this year's Electronics Fair, the debut Tech Hall at the Convention Hall comprises five thematic zones: the two new zones of Virtual Reality (VR) and Startup, as well as Smart Tech, Robotics & Unmanned Tech and 3D Printing. While facilitating buyers to source a wide range of high tech electronic products, industry players will also be able to explore investment and partnership opportunities in a range of technologies developed by new startups.

The Virtual Reality (VR) zone will showcase the latest products and applications, including technologies related to video games and videos as well as 3D cameras. A Hong Kong exhibitor will present a VR drone that is designed to create aerial 360-degree videos. Capable of capturing full and uninterrupted spherical videos around the drone, the VR drone offers professional grade equipment for creating VR videos.

Reflecting the growing number of startups in Hong Kong, the new Startup zone will gather close to 50 startups from Hong Kong, Canada, the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and the United States to showcase creative technologies and ideas. A local startup has developed a smart baby bottle accessory, along with their self-developed app, which is able to automatically log, analyse and monitor a baby's feeding habits. Another local startup will showcase a full-colour 3D printer that uses CMYK blending technology, where four different colour filaments are mixed together to create sharper colour tones.

The HKTDC is also organising a series of events to help startups meet with potential business partners and exchange ideas with industry players. These include the "First Step of Your Startup Project" seminar, which features a representative from the US crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, a pitching session where startups can pitch solutions or product ideas to potential investors, sharing on startup success stories from entrepreneurs, and product launch demos.

The Smart Tech and Robotics & Unmanned Tech zones launched last year will return to display the latest creative electronic products and future technologies including robots with IoT technology, drones and electric scooters. Meanwhile, the 3D Printing zone will feature 3D printers and related materials and technology.

Held concurrently with the Electronics Fair, electronicAsia is an important sourcing platform for electronic components and technologies. One of the highlight zones is World of Display Technology, which will present products such as a LCD display suitable for outdoor applications under direct sunlight. The product features a wide-viewing angle, high-resolution display and can also be used as a touch-screen panel.

electronicAsia also showcases other components such as printed circuit boards, keyboards, switches and integrated circuits. Other exhibits include parts, modules and technology for solar and photovoltaic energy, as well as key components for smart devices, providing mobile device manufacturers with display lights, smart switch modules and more.

Experts discuss Smart Tech and IoT development trends

As smart devices and IoT technology continue to gain more attention, the HKTDC is nurturing these trends by jointly organising the Symposium on Innovation & Technology with the Hong Kong Electronics & Technologies Association on the first day of the Electronics Fair (13 October). Representatives from the world's leading tech companies including Tesla Motors, Amazon Web Services, HP and Qualcomm will gather and discuss smart tech and IoT trends.

Other seminars will focus on investigating hot-button issues in the electronics sector such as VR, AR, wearable technology and integrated circuits among other industry developments.

For the first time, TEDxHong Kong will take place on the third day of the Electronics Fair (15 October). TED, which stands for "Technology, Entertainment, Design", is a stage for thought leaders from various sectors to share their inspiring stories, ideas and insights. Meanwhile, the award-winning companies of the Electronic Industries Award 2016, jointly organised by the HKTDC and Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association, will present their work during the fair period.

Lighting Fair matches market needs with LED and green lighting

The Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) will welcome a record-breaking number of more than 2,600 exhibiting companies from 37 countries and regions to display the latest technology, creative concepts and product lines. The Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) will be held from 27 to 30 October with companies from Canada, Hungary, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates taking part for the first time.

A fair highlight, Hall of Aurora will feature more than 500 brands, gathering top-quality lighting products from such brands as BJB, Citizen, EGLO, Lumileds, Neo-Neon and Megaman. As the demand for energy-efficient lighting grows, LED lighting products continue to drive the market. The LED & Green Lighting zone welcomes more than 1,000 exhibitors, enabling designers and manufacturers to display the latest green technology and designs to meet buyer demand for LED and green lighting products. The Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) presents various green and innovative products, including a Hong Kong exhibitor showcasing a Floating Bulb that has an oak base and a LED bulb. It uses magnetic floating and wireless induction technologies that make the bulb levitate and rotate 360 degrees at the same time. The bulb can be turned on by gently touching the base.

A series of seminars will also be organised with experts sharing the latest market information and analysing industry trends. A seminar on The Latest Development of Smart Lighting will be held on 26 October at the HKCEC. Representatives from LEDinside, Lumileds and Neonlite International Ltd will share the latest technologies, product trends and developments in smart lighting.

New Outdoor and Tech Light Expo creates cross-sector business opportunities

With Asia continuing to drive global economic growth, construction projects in the region are developing rapidly. Building on the success of the World of Outdoor Lighting & Lighting Accessories 2015, this year the HKTDC is expanding the scale of the event by launching the first Hong Kong International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo to meet market demand. The inaugural fair has attracted about 380 exhibitors from the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Taiwan. The Outdoor and Tech Light Expo will feature exhibits in Outdoor Lighting as well as Lighting Accessories, Parts & Components. Dedicated zones of Professional and Industrial Lighting and Advertising Lighting are also introduced to offer lighting products and parts for different working environments. A Hong Kong exhibitor will showcase a laser light projector that can project sparkling lights in red, green and blue, suitable for large-scale events indoors and outdoors.

On 26 October at AsiaWorld-Expo, a seminar featuring experts from the United Kingdom, Germany and the Chinese mainland will explore technological breakthroughs and latest trends in outdoor LED lighting. Another seminar on 28 October with leading companies Intertek HK, DEKRA and TUV SUD will discuss the latest standards and regulations for LED products in South America, Asia and the Middle East.

The Outdoor and Tech Light Expo will be held concurrently with the Hong Kong International Building and Hardware Fair and Eco Expo Asia at AsiaWorld-Expo from 26 to 29 October. The four parallel fairs will create strong synergy among the lighting, building and construction sectors. This will enhance the fair experience for exhibitors and buyers, creating more business opportunities while strengthening the international reputation of the fairs. A free shuttle bus service between the HKCEC and AsiaWorld-Expo will be provided during the fair period.
