Hong Kong Exhibition Industry In Good Health

The Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Industry Association (HKECIA) has announced the results of its 2010 Exhibition Survey. The announcement, made during the association's Annual General Meeting on 17 June, revealed that the number of trade exhibitions, visitors, exhibiting companies and space taken all showed an increase.

In 2010, over 648,000 visitors from outside of Hong Kong attended trade exhibitions, representing an increase of over 13% from 2009. This significant leap was fuelled by a strong comeback of international visitors by 18% to 214,000, surpassing the pre-financial crisis level. Visitors from the region increased by 13%, to 202,000. Mainland Chinese, numbering 232,000, represented an almost 10% increment from the previous year. At the same time, the number of local visitors to trade exhibitions jumped by 14% to over 1.2 million.

While the total number of exhibiting companies only showed a modest increment of 2% to 56,800, the increment of total space occupied, however, was 10% to 872,000 sqm, signifying that many companies were taking larger booth areas than before.
