Jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the 18th edition of the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair will run from 8 – 11 January 2018 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The four day fair expects more than 250 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions, and over 20,000 visitors from around the globe.
According to data shared by Statista, one of the world’s leading statistics companies, global revenue for the “Hobby and Stationery” segment in 2017 will reach USD132 billion (HKD1030 billion; RMB894 billion), with an annual growth rate of 11.3 per cent between 2017 and 2021.
Asia is forecasted to emerge as the highest revenue generator in 2017, which accounts for up to 42% of global revenue (USD56 billion; HKD437 billion; RMB379 billion). Hong Kong, as the major trade hub in Asia Pacific, has attracted the attention of brands and manufacturers from around the world thanks to this revenue generating region.
