Hong Kong Fashion Week and seven other Spring Fairs which were scheduled for April have been deferred until July 25-28, due to the coronavirus crisis.
“The safety of exhibitors and buyers has always been a priority,” the organiser of the events, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) said in an email announcing the postponements.
“Considering the current development of the novel coronavirus outbreak, and in line with the health measures taken by the Hong Kong SAR Government, a decision has been made in consultation with industry representatives to reschedule eight HKTDC trade fairs.”
The fairs are Hong Kong Fashion Week, Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition), Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring edition), International ICT Expo, Hong Kong Houseware Fair, Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair, Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair and the International Printing & Packaging Fair.
“As always, the HKTDC will make every effort to provide fair participants with safe, efficient and effective trading platforms in the future, while helping enterprises maximise their business opportunities through multiple global channels,” the statement concluded.
