Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair of Hong Kong Trade Development Council will open at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 20 to 23. It is the 10th session.

The exhibition has developed into an ideal platform for buyers to purchase fashionable home textiles and understand the future of the industry.

The fair will be held concurrently with the HKTDC Hong Kong Houseware Fair, which is the largest event of its kind in Asia.

The twin fairs together will form a one-stop sourcing platform to meet buyers’ needs for all kinds of household items and home textiles. Last year, close to 49,000 buyers from 112 countries and regions visited the two fairs, among them, more than 19,000 buyers came for the Home Textiles Fair.

HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau says that the power of Asian start-ups should not be underestimated. The HKTDC will continue to support start-ups to promote innovation and the sustained development of corporations

Environmental awareness also is on the rise and so is the demand for green products. Consumers particularly in mature markets like Japan, the US and West Europe, are enthusiastic about eco-friendly properties of natural fibres.

To cater to the surging demand, the fair highlights environmentally friendly and sustainable products by labelling exhibitors with green products or hotel supplies for effective sourcing.

The exhibitors will be categorized according to seven themes to facilitate buyers to search for goods and make procurement more convenient. " Innovation Hub "is the area which brings together textiles of excellent quality and novel design.


The exhibition will continue to have several regional pavilions in 2019. Handloom Export Promotion Council (HEPC), Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) and Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) will showcase high-quality home textiles from South Asia.

In addition, Zhejiang is one of the main production bases of domestic textile industry in China. Enterprises from Zhouquan Town (Tongxiang City) and Pujiang County will organize exhibitions for the first time to show traditional high-quality bedding in Zhejiang.
