Thousands of manufacturers from China, South Korea and Hong Kong come over every year to show their latest products and inventions during the Global Sources and HKTDC tradeshows making Hong Kong the ideal place to test the waters regarding Asia’s trending technologies.
"Hong Kong is probably one of the best places to study the world of consumer electronics and see what’s new and coming."
Here is a top five of what we thought was most trending while visiting the October 2016 tradeshows of Global Sources and HKTDC:
Smart home devices
Smart home devices are getting its own section in the Global Sources tradeshow. Security (camera’s) seems to be omnipresent in this category followed by smart light switches. And ofcourse everything can be controlled by the smartphone. Though big companies like Apple, Samsung or Google are trying to become the new smart-home-hub for people worldwide, we did not see exhibitors yet lining up with their technology.
