Eco Asia Expo 2014 Sees Strong Global Exhibitor Participation
Eco Expo Asia, which is organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, and co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), the show saw its strongest global presence yet.
In attendance were 308 exhibitors representing 22 countries and regions at the fair, held Oct. 29-Nov. 1 at AsiaWorld-Expo.
The exhibits covered everything from energy efficiency and green building solutions to waste management and air purification technologies.
The fair’s international environment was further bolstered by 10,817 visitors from 89 countries and regions.
Visitors targeting location-specific exhibitors took advantage of various pavilions to streamline sourcing. Clustered by country, returning pavilions included Canada, Japan, Russia and Switzerland, as well as Chinese mainland pavilions for Foshan, Guangdong, Guangzhou, Macau and Shenzhen. Sweden made its debut participation, along with the Netherlands and Korea pavilions.
Supporting the notion that the market potential for green business is strong was Riggs Lee, Business Development Executive at Program Contractors Ltd from Hong Kong.
“We wish to promote our high-quality aluminium formwork systems. They are green, cost-effective, user-friendly and can be reused. With a surging amount of construction projects in Chinese mainland and Hong Kong, together with the calls for more environmental protection, there will be huge demand for eco-friendly products and technologies,” Lee said.
He added, “Eco Expo Asia is the only widely-recognised fair in the industry in Hong Kong, making it an event that we cannot miss. I was happy with the visitor flow and met quite a lot of professional visitors who were interested in our products.
The Eco Asia Conference was held during the Expo. More than 30 government representatives and industry experts in environmental protection development exchanged market knowledge regarding new Chinese government policies and technological advancements.
More than 560 attendees joined the Conference’s discussions, including Government Related Session, Eco Smart City, Waste Management & Recycling, Sustainable Energy & Energy Efficiency, and Green Building.
