Space limitations at the Convention and Exhibition Centre have forced the organiser of the annual toys and gifts show to expand the event to the nearby Tamar site, paving the way for Hong Kong's biggest trade fair yet. The Tamar expansion adds 700 booths to next month's fair and accommodates more than 500 exhibitors under five marquees. This brings the total number of booths to more than 5,300 and the number of exhibitors to more than 3,700. The combined Hong Kong International Toys and Gifts Show and Asian Gifts Premium and Household Products Show are collectively known as Mega Show Part 1. Expansion costs are put at no less than $15 million, while it is expected to generate about $20 million in extra income. Exhibitors are charged $30,600 for a standard booth at the Wan Chai venue, and $25,800 at Tamar. 'All the booths at both venues have been taken up, and we have 300 or 400 exhibitors on the waiting list,' said Javed Khan, general manager of event organiser Kenfair. The Convention and Exhibition Centre has taken steps to address the space shortage, but construction will not finish until 2009. Mega Show Part 1 takes place from October 20-23. A smaller sister event, Mega Show Part 2, will run from October 27-29, but only at the Wan Chai venue.
