THE Electrical Home Appliances Expo '94 and the Ideal Home Expo '94 are expected to attract more than 200,000 visitors during the Easter holiday period. The shows, now in their fifth year, were opened by Leo Lee, president of the Hong Kong and Kowloon Electrical Appliances Merchants Association, Teo Boon-teong, vice-chairman of the Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association, and Francis Lo, executive director of the Trade Development Council. Mr Lo said demand for electrical appliances was growing because of the increasing number of small families and the supply of new flats. But he said China would see even faster growth in demand for electrical appliances. Mr Lo said the exhibitions not only attract local consumers, but also buyers from Southeast Asia and China. The four-day shows have attracted 140 exhibitors and feature electrical appliances, furniture, fabrics, home entertainment equipment and home decoration and furnishing products. Mr Lee said: ''Hong Kong people have become discerning consumers and are constantly in search of increasingly sophisticated products.'' New products featured at the exhibitions include water dispensers, colour Chinese/English graphwriters, induction cookers, posterphones, jumbo switches, moveable houses and environmentally-friendly water coolers. Mr Lee said: ''To manufacturers, the expos serve as an ideal opportunity to introduce and test-market their latest products, while retailers can use them to source new items, and consumers gain access to innovative and quality products.'' Last year, Hong Kong's import of electrical appliances rose nine per cent to more than $67 billion. he said.
