The fifth edition of HKTDC Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishings Fair will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, April 20-23, 2014, alongside Asia’s largest event of its kind, HKTDC Hong Kong Houseware Fair. A comprehensive spectrum of household related products and textiles will be showcased for easy and one-stop sourcing.

Hall of Glamour features top quality brands
It is expected that over 220 exhibitors from 6 countries and regions will bring the unique styles and craftsmanship of their respective places. In addition to the exhibitors from the Chinese mainland and India, which are typically known for producing high quality textiles, the fair will also feature exhibitors from Czech Republic and Taiwan, etc., among which Czech Republic is a new country to the fair.

The fair is structured to include a number of themed sections catering to key market segments. The new “Design Solutions and Trade Services” will feature interior designers and branding experts to give buyers advice for material sourcing as well as design solutions, from branding to in-store environment idea. It is definitely a one-stop sourcing platform for home textiles buyers.

“Hall of Glamour” will feature an array of top quality, trendy and branded home furnishing and household textile products, covering towels, bedding, curtains and carpets. Key brands include Bursa from Hong Kong, Cottex from Australia and exhibitors with quality products like Shiv Shakti Exports from India and Repar from Taiwan, etc.
