Hong Kong Toys & Games, Baby Products and Stationery Fairs Open

January 14, 2016 Exhibitions No Comments Print Print Email Email

HKTDC Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair, HKTDC Hong Kong Baby Products Fair and the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair opened today at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Together, the four-day fairs welcome close to 2,800 exhibitors, showcasing an interesting line-up of innovative and quality products.


The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) has organised 116 buying missions from 65 countries and regions, inviting close to 9,000 prominent buyers from around the world to visit and source at the fair. These include department stores, specialty stores and retail chains such as Toys ‘R’ Us, Hamleys and Tomy Company Ltd as well as e-tailers like JD.com, Yihaodian, Leyou Babies to Kids from the Chinese mainland and such local enterprises like Mannings, Ocean Park and Page One. Together they offer a diverse range of opportunities for exhibitors.

HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau said business for toys, baby products and stationery this year is expected to be steady. “Buyers are prudent, yet, they show strong interest in licensed products of popular TV programmes, cartoons and movies. Educational toys and electronics toys targeting youngsters are also well received among buyers. In addition, the Chinese mainland’s emerging middle class and the introduction of the Two-child Policy will drive demand for toys, baby products and stationery items on the mainland,” said Mr Chau.

Mr Chau said the toys industry has been undergoing upgrading and transformation in recent years to expand business through design, branding, licensing and marketing campaigns that add value to products. “The Toys & Games Fair includes an extensive array of products, ranging from traditional favourites to high-tech toys and games. Manufacturers are allocating more resources to R&D, applying magnetic levitation, holographic projection and augmented reality technology and more to give classic toys a face lift,” he said.

Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair

The 42nd edition of the HKTDC Toys & Games Fair features a record number of over 2,030 exhibitors from 41 countries and regions with new exhibiting countries and regions including Greece, Canada and the Philippines, making it the largest event of its kind in Asia, and the second largest in the world. The fair welcomes the new United Kingdom pavilion this year alongside returning group pavilions from the mainland, Indonesia, Korea, Spain, Taiwan and World of Toys.

The HKTDC Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and HKTDC Hong Kong Baby Products Fair are organised by the HKTDC while the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair is jointly-organised by the HKTDC and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. The shows are being held concurrently with the HKTDC Hong Kong International Licensing Show, providing abundant trading opportunities and good potential for cross-over business activities among participants from various sectors.

During the fair period, the HKTDC’s Design Gallery shop at the HKCEC is organising an exhibition of classic toys entitled “Salute to Hong Kong Toys”. The exhibition is a nostalgic look at the treasure trove of products throughout Hong Kong’s toy manufacturing history. It showcases 100 classic “made in Hong Kong” toys, which are provided by toys manufacturer LT Lam and toy collector Oxide Pang, who is also a film director. In addition, Design Gallery displays a variety of innovative toys, baby products and licensing items dedicated to promoting the excellence of “100% Hong Kong designs” to both buyers and consumers. Buyers can connect with the suppliers through Design Gallery&s trade enquiry service.

Officiating at the opening ceremony this morning were Carrie Lam, Chief Secretary for Administration of the HKSAR Government; Li Jiangang, Deputy Director General, Department of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Affairs, Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China; Margaret Fong, Executive Director, HKTDC; CK Yeung, Chairman, HKTDC Toys Advisory Committee; and Tommy Li, Chairman, HKTDC Design, Marketing and Licensing Services Advisory Committee.
