Special Highlight - World of Pet Supplies
World of Pet Supplies has been created in response to strong market demand, and features items from the basic to the pampering in the categories of pet-related products and services, aquatic products and veterinary products. Over 70 exhibitors are taking part, and are located at Hall 1A.

Pavilion Update
The show incorporates 17 group pavilions representing various countries and regions, namely Bangladesh, Brazil, the Chinese mainland, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the US and Vietnam.

The Bangladesh Pavilion is making its debut at the fair. A total of 10 exhibitors are displaying a range of products that reflect the country's vibrant heritage as well as its modern outlook. Buyers can view and source handicrafts, home textiles, home furnishings and home decoration items, as well as meet with suppliers and learn more about Bangladesh's emerging manufacturing sector.

The Brazil Pavilion, entitled Glass Brasil, is another newcomer to the fair. Born from a joint initiative by Sindividro (Union of Flat and Hollow Glass and Crystal Producers from the State of Sao Paulo) and Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency responsible for stimulating Brazilian exports), Glass Brasil brings together nine companies that have mastered various methods of glass production, from manual techniques to the most sophisticated automatic processes, offering a great range of products targeted at global markets.

Part of the Chinese mainland pavilion, the Fujian Dehua Porcelain Pavilion showcases the excellence of Dehua pottery. Dehua is known as the porcelain capital of China, and this style of pottery has a long and venerable history, being produced since the Ming Dynasty. Known as Blanc de Chine, it became famous and greatly admired around the world for its beauty. A total of 30 exhibitors are taking part in the pavilion.

Also making its debut is the Iran Carpet Pavilion, organised by the Iran National Carpet Centre, which features exhibitors showcasing the country's magnificent Persian carpets. An integral part of Iran's cultural history, these carpets are world-renowned for their quality, workmanship and intricate designs. Most are made from wool, but some are of silk, and many are still made by hand. Exhibits at the fair include a demonstration of the hand-knotting techniques that are so important to the genre, live at the fairground.

Hear What Exhibitors Say
It is no doubt that Hong Kong Houseware Fair is the most significant event for sourcing and distribution contacts in Asia. This year, it will bring me another very substantial opportunity to expand my business. Apart from silicone kitchenware design and manufacturing, Go On Global has rapidly expanded the retail agency and re-distribution service of many world-class European kitchenware/tabletop brands, including Arzberg, Bamix, Cole and Mason, Gense, Mastrad, Mauviel, Vulkanus, Woll and Zyliss. Hence we wish to explore Asian re-sale markets especially for the Chinese mainland and Taiwan.
Paul Wong, Managing Director, Go On Global Co Ltd, Hong Kong

World of Pet Supplies is one of the best platforms at which to launch new product to the global markets, and this is why we have joined. We are launching a new biscuit that is healthy and tasty for dogs, so we are looking for private label buyers here.
