The Hong Kong Gifts & Premiums Fair is the largest event of its kind in the world. Held from the 27 – 30 April, this year’s event attracted over 4 000 exhibitors and just under 50 000 buyers from 134 countries across the globe.

As South Africa’s premium supplier of corporate and promotional gifts, Giftwrap Trading made the long trip to Hong Kong to gain valuable insight into the market and identify new cutting-edge products which are making a buzz.

Giftwrap Trading’s Marketing Director Benje du Toit said that it was exciting to see the development of new products internationally.

“It’s amazing to see how fast the industry is expanding and we want to bring this expansion into South Africa. We are always excited to add to our product range and provide customers with novel gifts and technological innovations,” said du Toit.

During the event, surveys amongst buyers and exhibitors showed that decorative gifts and figurines are likely to have the strongest growth potential this year, followed closely by technological gifts. Respondents also voiced the opinion that consumers are increasingly focused on product practicality and pricing, followed by pricing and cosmetic design.

“As we look to play on a global stage, it was educational/insightful to get some insights into the industry, which will allow us to better develop our products offerings,” du Toit said.
