Watch & Clock Fair Gathers Global Buying Interests

The HKTDC Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair and Salon de TE early this month (September 2023) welcomed nearly 15,000 buyers from 95 countries and regions, bringing brisk trade to the fairgrounds. Buyers who attended the fairs were very international. Many exhibitors even received orders on the spot. 

Global buyers and visitors flocked to the venue to spot their favourite timepieces.

During the Fair, NewsBites talked to several exhibitors who have already been using our Sourcing platform and very keen to promote their signature products, one of which is Timing Watch (HK) Limited that specializes in the manufacturing of sophisticated mechanical watches and high-grade tourbillon timepieces. Their Marketing Executive Ms. Sonic Chan said they have been participating at the Hong Kong Watch and Clock Fair since 2015. Apart from American buyers, the Fair also helped them to capture keen interest from buyers from Russia, Turkey, and Kuwait.

Sonic also expressed sincere gratitude for the invaluable Click2Match service provided under the Exhibition+ model. Prior to the exhibition, buyers from Russia and Indonesia had already browsed their company via this service. Southeast Asian buyers, who have great interest on unique watch designs, perfectly align with their offerings. 

Timing Watch finds Click2Match useful to connect with like-minded buyers.

Business Matching Made Perfect

Another exhibitor that we spoke with was Ching Chi Industrial Company Limited which actively participates in various exhibitions including the Hong Kong Watch and Clock Fair, Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair, and the Hong Kong Electronics Fair. According to their Sales and Marketing Manager Evan Chan, they officially joined the online promotion package this year to become a supplier of the Sourcing platform. Since then, they have received numerous enquiries from first-time buyers located in the United States, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

In addition to physical fair, Ching Chi also praised the Click2Match AI smart business matching service which automatically suggests suitable buyers and facilitates meeting arrangements during the fair. They admitted that the number of requests received was overwhelming!
