Three special zones dedicated to new and rapidly growing opportunities in eyewear will further strengthen this year’s Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) Hong Kong Optical Fair, which takes place from 6-8 November.
Over 630 exhibitors are expected to show their wares to over 12,000 visitors at the annual optical fair.
A special ‘Reading Glasses’ zone will reflect that today’s essential eyewear is also a fashion statement; while a ‘Kids’ Eyewear & Accessories’ zone and a ‘3D Eyewear’ zone will accommodate buyers in these
rapidly growing market sectors.
Buyers looking for on-trend designs and strong brands will no doubt be drawn to the stylishly decorated ‘Brand Name Gallery’, which over the past few years has become a major highlight of the Fair.

According to the organisers, other Fair highlights include ‘Contact Lens & Accessories’, ‘Diagnostic Instruments’, ‘Eyewear, Frames & Lens’, ‘Eyewear Accessories’, ‘Optometric Instruments, Equipment and Machinery’, ‘Sporting & Professional Eyewear’ and ‘Trade Services’.
Last year exhibitor Robert Grow, Executive Vice President of Product Development, FGX International, USA, said, “We get to see market trends, learn about new techniques and meet with most of our suppliers at the fair.”
Visitors to last year’s Hong Kong Optical Fair were impressed with the quality of the exhibits. “This fair features a good variety of suppliers and really provides a good place for sourcing,” said Eric Rhea, Vice President/General Manager of Dioptics, USA. “We found very interesting items with unique styles and crazy ideas.”
“Brand Name Gallery is especially good for us as we are looking for designer brands and styles,” said Kevin Siew, Managing Director of i-Care Optometry in Malaysia. “Consumers want to have something different and it’s great to see the fair move forward with the presence of more new and international brands.”
Strong Conference Program
Alongside this year’s exhibition will be a series of seminars to promote greater knowledge of industry trends, issues and market development, while the 11th Hong Kong Optometric Conference will discuss the industry’s ‘hot topics’.
Hong Kong is the third largest exporter of spectacles and frames in the world after Italy and the Chinese mainland. The HKTDC Hong Kong Optical Fair runs from 6-8 November at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
