Hong Kong SMEs are set to roll out their goods and services at a cyber-expo.

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted business activity across the globe, with hundreds of exhibitions worldwide being postponed or even cancelled, depriving many companies across the board of opportunities to promote themselves.

Adapting to this new reality, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) is deploying technology and online platforms to connect businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in Hong Kong with the world. The HKTDC will host a month-long Spring Virtual Expo from 1 April,  Spring Virtual Expo 

Virtual fairground

Spring Virtual Expo will give Hong Kong businesses a new channel to maintain and establish contact with global buyers and capture orders during the traditional peak sourcing season.

The HKTDC’s online marketplace, Sourcing, has won multiple international awards. The site features around 130,000 quality suppliers and more than 2 million international buyers, with over 24 million business connections made every year. Supplier information is verified by third-party organisations to enhance buyers’ sourcing confidence,”

To further enhance the effectiveness of business matching, the Spring Virtual Expo will focus on four themes: technology – lighting and electronics; gifts and houseware; lifestyle; and fashion and beauty. The 33 groups of products covered under the four themes will include lighting, construction and hardware, electronics and computer accessories; home products, gifts, toys, baby products and stationery; jewellery, watches and glasses; and fashion accessories, clothing, and health and beauty products.
