The 15th edition of the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair will be held 12 – 15 January 2015 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In addition, it has signed exhibitors from the Chinese mainland, Greece, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and the USA.
Ms Fiona Chiew, Deputy General Manager for Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd commented on the continuous support from overseas companies. She said: “The Hong Kong International Stationery Fair is an important event for paper, stationery, office supplies as well as gift manufacturers and agents from around the world to develop their businesses, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. The 2015 show is expecting more than 200 exhibitors from different countries and regions.”
Mr Benjamin Chau, Deputy Executive Director for HKTDC added: “Last year we received positive comments from exhibitors and visitors on the product zoning because it enhances sourcing efficiency and the show experience. Therefore, we will continue to set up five product zones: DIY Supplies, Gift Stationery, Kids & School, Pen & Paper as well as Smart Office.”
The DIY Supplies zone will include “do-it-yourself” and handicraft items to cater to the growing popularity of DIY. At the Gift Stationery zone, exhibitors will display different kinds of promotional gifts for consumers and corporate use. The Kids & School zone will feature artist supplies, children’s stationery and school supplies, while a wide range of office supplies, computer accessories and office equipment consumables will be showcased at the Smart Office zone. As for the Pen & Paper zone, visitors will be able to source paper, printing products and writing equipment.
