Hong Kong

HKTDC would like to invite Canadian food and beverage companies to participate in the Food Expo PRO taking place in person from August 17-19, 2023 at the Hong Kong Convention Centre in Wanchai, Hong Kong.

Since 2004, the Trade Hall of Food Expo has served as a specialised platform for the launch of new food and beverage (F&B) products for both local and overseas businesses. With the participation from local and overseas promotional bodies, such as the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), Korean Agro-Fisheries and Food Trade Corporation (aT), and PRC’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (中國農業農村部), etc., the Trade Hall of Food Expo is dedicated to all professionals for conducting business and exchanging marketing information.

To make a fresh start and cater the increasing and varied sourcing need of professional buyers, the Trade Hall of Food Expo will be rebranded as “Food Expo PRO” in 2023. The Food Expo PRO will include B2B elements and comprehensive services to facilitate business partnerships and opportunities worldwide. More collaboration with industry leaders will also take place to foster the sharing on market trends and information.

Each year, the Trade Hall attracts large number of professional buyers. Back in 2019, the trade hall attracted close to 18,000 quality buyers. They were from 54 countries and regions, with the top visiting countries and regions from Mainland China, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Poland, Taiwan, and Thailand.

Under the current economic situation, it is of utmost importance for exhibitors to take proactive steps to promote their products to international buyers through HKTDC’s extensive marketing channels.
