Hong Kong International Stationery & School Supplies Fair returns in January

The 21st edition of the Hong Kong International Stationery & School Supplies Fair will return Jan. 9-12, 2023, with a new fair name, exhibit categories and exhibition model at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Messe Frankfurt organized the fair, which will adopt the physical-online EXHIBITION+ model for the first time. The online exhibition will run until Jan. 19, offering business opportunities through the online and offline business platforms.

Learning resources

Demand for e-learning resources and video conferencing equipment has risen sharply since the onset of the pandemic and is expected to remain high.

In response to this industry trend and market demands, the fair has been renamed as the Hong Kong International Stationery & School Supplies Fair to highlight the new Learning Resources exhibit category, which covers a variety of e-learning systems and software, pre-school education and learning products as well as video conferencing systems and equipment. Apart from dedicated zones for stationery and school supplies, the fair will continue to showcase creative art, gift stationery, office supplies, pen and paper, and school stationery, providing a one-stop sourcing platform for buyers.

The fair organizers strive to promote the fair to the industry and continue to cooperate with renowned industry associations in different regions, including the Korea Stationery Industry Cooperative, the Taiwan Association of Stationery Industries, the Malaysia Stationery Importers and Exporters Association and the Thai Stationeries and Office Supplies Association.

EXHIBITION+

The Hong Kong International Stationery & School Supplies Fair will run under the new EXHIBITION+ model.

It comprises four key exhibition elements — physical fairs, the smart business-matching platform Click2Match, online-to-offline seminars under the intelligence hub and the hktdc.com sourcing platform — to provide services that boost the flexibility and effectiveness of business promotion for SMEs and offer benefits such as extended fair periods, expanded platforms and enhanced opportunities.

EXHIBITION+ extends face-to-face interactions from physical exhibitions to an online smart business-matching platform to help users connect with business partners proactively.

Concurrent fairs

The Hong Kong International Stationery & School Supplies Fair will be held concurrently with the HKTDC’s Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and the Hong Kong Baby Products Fair at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, providing a one-stop sourcing platform and crossover business opportunities for participants.

The 2023 fair will also run alongside the HKTDC Hong Kong International Optical Fair, which runs from Jan. 9-11.
