Australia has the largest Pavilion at Hofex 2009
151 Australian businesses joined 1,800 international businesses to showcase their products at leading Food and Hospitality trade fair "HOFEX" over 4 days in Hong Kong in May 2009. A 40.8% increase in Australian exhibitors saw Australia set the lead - largest country pavilion and largest increase in numbers (over 2007) of the Asia Pacific region. The trade fair was well attended by 32,749 visitors from the region and international - and included some 1,200 buyers from mainland China brought directly to the fair by a fleet of 120 charter buses.

It was our great pleasure to work with the dynamic Export Solutions team to make it a successful event for all our exhibitors. With the great joint efforts and team work (from state government offices as well), we all noticed the significant increase in terms of booth number and exhibitor number from Australia to make the Australian contingent by far the largest country stand at HOFEX this year, this is indeed an outstanding result for Export Solutions considering you started the HOFEX project first time.
We look forward to working together and supporting each other again in near future!

The show was a great success for us, and we are in the process of following up on the contacts that we made and providing quotes. In all, a very positive show.
Thank you for all your assistance with the Hofex Show.

We would like to thank you for your support and helping us make Vitality Brands attendance at HOFEX a success. We hope we were able to delight you and some of your customers with our tasty "better for you" products, our quality sunscreens and presentation.
We are now back in Australia and we are working through our contact list and notes, we will be endeavoring to contact you soon, to assist us in making some more sense of the specific country enquiries that we had through a hectic week.
Thanks, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
