As any homeware buyer will tell you, identifying trends early is the key to successful product sourcing. To assist visitors attending this year's fair, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council has organised a Central Product Display in Atrium 1.

The purpose of the exhibit is to explore the latest lifestyle trends and showcase some of the newest products offerings from manufacturers. The display will arrange products under the following five themes: easy housekeeping; creative house; romance and luxury; metallic concept, and avant-garde. Shown here are some of the new products exhibited at this year's fair.
