Sad to say that this will be our final day here, and along the way, we have seen so much of what HKTDC Electronics Fair has to offer. From the latest trends in the market so the latest innovation by startups, there’s so much to discover here at HKTDC. With most of the talks and events over, we had the time to check out the rest of the booths. Today was a day of exploring, and we were not disappointed.
Each hall is filled with interesting products, like a Qi wireless charger or speakers built into tables. Most of the booths share commonalities and some stand out more than others, but there’s usually like dozens of booths doing the same thing in their own way. We lost count on how many booths did wireless audio, or printed circuit boards. Maybe as a visitor, this could get a little boring if all you see are the same things, but do understand that these are not only retailers but also manufacturers who are showcasing their products for possible buyers.
On the top floor, you can find plenty of booths that sell components and parts such as ports, jacks, and cables. It wouldn’t be farfetched to say you could probably build just about anything with all the parts and components you can find at the halls. You could say it’s a DIY’ers haven. But of course, there’s more to the fair than that. In a different zone, you can find robots designed for different uses, such as waiting tables or delivering food to customers, the fair even has its very own robot at one of their showcase booths.
HKTDC’s Electronics Fair isn’t just a place for advertising, it’s there to provide a place where ideas can come to life and get support. You may see similar booths and wonder, why is everyone so similar? While if you took the time to stop at each of them and ask about their products then you would realise each of them is different in their own way, not just in terms of product design but in the targeted audience, origins, goal of the product.
Just like the opportunity we were given to sit down with startups the previous day, the fair gives buyers the chance to sit down and just make talk with the people there, build connections and find like-minded people to work with.
