Jul 19, 2016

The 17th edition of the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair will return from 9 – 12 January 2017. The four-day trade fair is expected to gather more than 220 exhibitors from around the globe. The major product zones are DIY Supplies, Gift Stationery, Kids & School, Pen & Paper as well as Smart Office.

Jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the show is the first stationery, hobby & crafts and office supplies industry event in the calendar year. It connects industry players and offers innovative products and ideas for business development to stay ahead of the industry.

Diakakis Imports SA from Greece is a loyal exhibitor at Hong Kong International Stationery Fair. The regular participant intends to display products of various brands including Luna, Must, Tesoro and Stop & Look at the show.

Last edition’s show attracted more than 20,500 visitors from 110 countries and regions. The top five visiting countries and regions were the Chinese mainland, Korea, Taiwan, Japan and the US. According to the independent on-site visitor survey commissioned by the HKTDC, over 60 percent of the visitors were from wholesale trade and close to 20 percent of them were from retail trade.

Growth in school stationery market is expected

Due to increasing popularity on personalised products, the demand for unique school stationery items surged. The global school stationery supplies market is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost four percent by 2020, based on research by Technavio, a market research company. Paper-based products continue to lead the overall school stationery supplies market, which represented more than half of the overall market in 2015.

The research report also revealed two rising demands in the market, which are the demand for high-quality innovative stationery with multi-functions, as well as the demand for customised school stationery for unique identification of a consumer’s product. In addition, paper craft and art activities products for children are gaining popularity among consumers.
