This year's Hong Kong Electronics Fair, held from October 11th
to the 18th, was the biggest ever in Asia. It was combined with the Hong Kong
International Lighting Fair and elect-ronicAsia which concentrates on electronic
components such as SMDs, capacitors, switches and so on.
The venue for the combined show is truly vast, with 44,000
square metres of space spread over three levels. With thousands of exhibitors,
the exhibition floors were like a maze. So much so that it would take several
days to examine everything on show. Indeed, many visitors did just that.
This photo does NOT show the exhibition centre: it shows a part of the exhibition centre from another part of the exhibition centre!
Just finding your way through the huge crowd was a feat in itself . . .
This year's show was so big and so many potential exhibitors
were turned away that next year's show will split off the Lighting Fair to make
more space for the electronic product exhibitors. Total number of exhibitors at
the HK Electronics Fair and electronic-Asia amounted to 2253.
