About the new exhibition model for Smart Home: Online + Physical Formats
Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the HKTDC International Sourcing Show brings together buyers and suppliers from around the world to promote business developments and communications amid the pandemic.
The trade fair will be staged from March to July 2021 in both online and physical formats. Moreover, it will integrate seven HKTDC trade fairs originally scheduled for spring 2021.
This change is made so that the participants, visitors, and organizers can make travel arrangements with ease and comfort.
Additionally, they also get to explore multiple business opportunities across several industries at the same time under the same roof.
The digital experience of HKTDC will kick off in March and eliminate the geographical barriers. It will allow businesses the agility to plan ahead and prepare for the resumption of activities, as they continue to assess the markets and navigate through the new normal.
