The region's top trade fair for electronic components and systems is an event not to be missed by industry professionals seeking to expand business opportunities.

Held simultaneously with the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, electronicAsia 2011 is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Messe Munchen International.

Presenting an array of electronic parts, electromechanical components, computer accessories and solar photovoltaic batteries, the event provides a valuable sourcing platform for buyers from around the world.

The fair is hosting the World of Solar Conference 2011, which looks at the application of photovoltaic and energy efficiency systems in buildings. Speakers include representatives of GE Energy China and Siemens Building Technologies, and academics from City University and Polytechnic University.

Stanley Wong, executive director of aluminium capacitor developer Man Yue Electronics, says the trade show provides an opportunity for the company to maintain contact with existing customers.

'We have many old friends coming to the event. We give them face-to-face updates of our work and find out more about the latest development of their businesses,' he says. Man Yue's exhibits include solid polymer capacitors, which minimise electrical resistance and are essential parts for mobile phone chargers and computers, and super capacitors boasting strong charging and discharging power.

First-time exhibitor Thai Trade Centre in Hong Kong looks forward to the opportunity to extend market reach in Hong Kong and Macau.

Its pavilion consists of five companies, including NPE Industry which offers audio products such as hi-fi and meeting systems, and Wireform A.N. which develops spring parts, stamping parts and plastic injection moulding parts.

Tom Blaha, president of Memory Protection Devices, says his company displays specially designed coin cell holders and products featuring Microsoft's InstaLoad technology. The latter allows for battery insertion into devices without having to worry about which way the battery is facing, enabling the production of a variety of user-friendly battery-powered devices.

'We expect to educate engineers in adopting new technologies and products needed to unplug from the grid and successfully implement transition to portable power,' he says.
