Hong Kong International Lighting Fair goes online

(China) – Previously scheduled for 27-30 October, show now added to HKTDC Autumn Sourcing Week.

In view of the latest situation regarding the global Covid-19 pandemic, and the increased restrictions imposed by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair has moved online.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has tightened various disease prevention and control measures, and extended entry restrictions for incoming visitors. Couple with travel restrictions and quarantine measures from other countries and regions, it meant that overseas exhibitors and buyers would have been unable to attend the lighting fair, scheduled to take place on 27-30 October.

Following consultation with industry representatives and key stakeholders, a decision has been made to move the fair online, consolidating with other fairs into HKTDC Autumn Sourcing Week | Online (ASWO). The online exhibition will be held from 16-27 November, enabling the industry to continue exploring business opportunities.

“With the successful conclusion of Summer Sourcing Weeks | Go Online (SSWGO) recently, we believe that ASWO will carry on the momentum to assist global exhibitors and buyers to overcome some of the challenges during these trying times,” the event organisers said in a statement on the show website. “The business matching and virtual meeting features offered by ASWO will help boost business connections. Details will be announced in due course.

“We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to exhibitors, group pavilions, industry associations and buyers from around the world for their tremendous support for HKTDC events. We will continue to make every effort to help companies capture business opportunities through different platforms.
