The spotlight is on the HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair 2011 (Autumn Edition) as the best place to boost business and meet customers from all around the globe.

A record-breaking 30,000-plus buyers, an increase of 9% over the previous year, attended the fair. There was an encouraging increase in buyers from mature markets, including France, Germany and North America. And there was also a larger presence of visitors from emerging markets, including as, Brazil, Chinese mainland, Malaysia, Philippines, Russia and Thailand.
It’s not just about size. The fair is also very effective in that it ensures exhibitors can meet the right buyers for their business. Themed product zones highlight key sectors in the industry.
The LED & Green Lighting Zone was a major focus in 2010, when it attracted 38% of all exhibitors, and is set to be even more important in 2011.
