Specialised Snore Stopper Attracts Numerous Southeast-Asian Customers

During the Fair, NewsBites talked to several exhibitors who are using our Sourcing platform and very keen to promote their signature products, one of which is VVFLY Electronics Co. Ltd featuring sleep health devices such as snore stoppers. According to their Sales Director Ms. Lily Li, their devices are comparable to world-renowned brands in terms of functionality, but can be purchased at a much more affordable price. Utilising patented AI technology, the snore stoppers provide much more comfort than traditional machines.

At the Fair, the company met with many keen Southeast-Asian buyers from Thailand, the Philippines and India who negotiated deals or even placed orders. They also met online with some Singaporean and Malaysian customers on Click2Match who subsequently visited their booth in-person. Lily believed product uniqueness is crucial to stand out in the market, and they are proactive to resolve customers’ problems to give better solutions.

Precision Draws Businesses from Medical and Education Sectors

Another exhibitor that we spoke with was Accue Co. Limited that features solar-powered clocks for medical institutions, and thus far 20-30 local hospitals under the Hong Kong Hospital Authority and more than 300 local schools already adopted their products. The company’s Director Mr. Kenny Yip commented the Fair brought targeted customers (nurses and medical practitioners) from both local and overseas like Australia, India and Macau. They are also utilising Click2Match to meet up with potential European buyers online.

The company encountered some difficulties in terms of detailed adaptation of wifi technology in their clocks which poses challenge to their manufacturing, and they are seeking automation as a way out.

Their CEO Mr. Glen Zhu told us customers like their health devices including wearable tech and blood pressure monitors that enable remote data transmission, and the Fair traffic is better than expected with diverse buyers coming from Europe and Southeast Asia. The company is gradually updating their product portfolio on Sourcing to increase online exposure, and they are optimistic about the future of medical industry which is growing continuously worldwide.
