HKTDC - New “World of Outdoor Lighting & Lighting Accessories” Boosts Sourcing Opportunities

he 17th edition of HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) will be staged from 27-30 October 2015 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). This must-attend event for the industry serves as an international marketplace for high-quality lighting products, solutions and services. Last year, the fair attracted 2,492 exhibitors from 38 countries and regions and over 37,000 buyers from 135 countries and regions. In the first four months of 2015, the total value of Hong Kong’s exports of lighting products reached US$147 million. The most important export markets for Hong Kong are the United States (+9.8%), the Chinese mainland (+15.3%) and Japan (+0.4%), together accounting for more than 50 per cent of the total export value.

 

LED & Green Lighting In Demand
In light of environmental concerns, energy-efficient and long lasting products continue to see strong demand. A recent independent market research survey commissioned by HKTDC found that 33 per cent of respondents expect LED and ‘green’ lighting products to see the highest sales growth in the year ahead, followed by commercial lighting (27%) and household lighting (22%). With LED products becoming more widely used globally, buyers interviewed said they expected the retail price of LED lamps to decrease by eight per cent within a year.

Markets such as the US, the European Union and the Chinese Mainland have either banned or plan to ban incandescent light-bulbs, promoting rising demand for ‘green’ lighting products. The fair’s LED & Green Lighting Zone showcases eco-friendly lighting for commercial, residential, advertising and other outdoor applications.

 

Hall of Aurora: Manifestation of Elegance
Hall of Aurora provides an elegant space for branded collections of eye-catching, high quality lighting fixtures. With an increasingly affluent and sophisticated consumer base in emerging markets, such products are seeing growing demand. Interior designers and architects, as well as fashion-forward retailers can find new and trendy lighting products. Leading brands taking part in the zone include BJB, Citizen, EGLO, Ford, Fulham, Fumagalli, Neo-Neon, Philips, Seoul Semiconductor, Viribright and many more.
Smart Lighting & Solutions Zone will be offering state-of-the-art technology for smart homes, offices and commercial premises. Remote-controlled lighting is no longer a futuristic dream but a contemporary demand. Exhibited products will include switch/control panels and tailor-made smart lighting solution packages.

 

Other zones highlights in 2015 include Advertising Lighting Zone, Household Lighting and Avenue of Inspiration. Related product zones are grouped together in the fairground to facilitate buyers to find first-choice exhibitors easily and efficiently.
The fair will also feature a range of seminars that explore key issues affecting the lighting industry, with influential speakers sharing their expertise and insights on the latest technologies and designs in the marketplace. Also, My Favourite Lighting Products 2015 will return this year promoting innovative and creative lighting product designs. Award winning entries will be showcased throughout the fair period.

Launching “World of Outdoor Lighting & Lighting Accessories” at Asia World-Expo
The Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) has received strong support from stakeholders over the years. To maximize sourcing opportunities and exhibitors’ exposure, HKTDC will re-locate the outdoor lighting, lighting accessories and parts and components product zone from Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) to set up” World of Outdoor Lighting & Lighting Accessories” at Asia World-Expo this year. This new event will be held alongside the HKTDC International Building and Hardware Fair and the Eco Expo Asia at Asia World-Expo from 28-31 October 2015.
The lighting industry is closely aligned with the building materials and hardware industry. Lighting products are not just for illumination, but also a key element in architectural design. The “World of Outdoor Lighting & Lighting Accessories” being staged alongside the Building and Hardware Fair will help attract more exhibitors and encourage them to showcase a great variety of high-quality exhibits and related services. Buyers, from the building and construction industry such as real estate developers and architects can source building hardware products and services together with related lighting fixtures at the same time. This new arrangement will generate a synergistic effect and create cross-sector collaboration opportunities.

 

The concurrent events will serves as an ideal one-stop marketplace for industry players, maximising exposure for exhibitors and creating additional buyer opportunities. A shuttle bus service will run between the HKCEC and Asia World-Expo during the fairs.
