Global Sources' 2015 spring electronics show second phase opened earlier this week with more than 1,900 booths focusing on mobile electronics. Held April 18-21 at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong, products categories covered included smartphones, tablets, drones, wearables and accessories.
Global Sources Electronics is being held in two phases and features a total of more than 5,500 booths, making it the world's largest electronics sourcing trade show.
The first phase was held April 11-14 and included a wide range of electronics for home, office, auto and security products as well as electronic components.
"Over the past 10 years hosting our events in Hong Kong, we have focused on attracting quality-focused, innovative electronics suppliers from China and across Asia,” said President of Global Sources Electronics Group Tommy Wong.
He added, “Our electronics show has gained a reputation as a place to discover the most cutting-edge electronics products coming out of the region. This, in turn, has attracted the world's top buyers to attend our events."
During the show buyers had the opportunity to visit the "Robotics Experience Zone". Hanson Robotics, one of the world's top robot manufacturers, presented its latest humanoid robot that deploys artificial intelligence for customer service interaction and other applications.
In addition, The Chinese University of Hong Kong showcased a series of surgical and industrial robots created with the goal of creating a better future through robotics.
There also was a Drones Experience Zone at the show that allowed suppliers to demonstrate their products to buyers. Drones are a hot category in the electronics industry with revenue of consumer drones expected to reach US$130 million in 2015, increasing by more than 50 percent from 2014.
Other highlights of the show included Asia's largest specialized area for mobile accessories with more than 1,100 booths, a wearable experience zone and a brand zone with more than 140 booths for branded products available for export.
