Why HKCEC is the place to be for food lovers this August

Hong Kong’s popular exhibition venue will continue to be a hive of activities this summer, and in mid-August gourmands will have the chance to indulge their taste buds at the annual food expo.

The 28th edition of the Food Expo, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will run at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) in Wan Chai from Aug. 17 to 21, showcasing nearly 1,500 exhibitors from 25 countries and regions, the largest number of exhibitors among all editions, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.

Visitors can continue to enjoy a number of promotional deals. These include 100 pieces of siu mai for only HK$1 for the first 10 customers in each of the first three days of the fair, offered by a dim sum production company. 

A dry seafood retailer and wholesaler also has a special treat for the first 10 customers who line up to join a game on the first day of the fair: winners can buy a whole bag of abalone and dry seafood for only HK$1.

HKTDC’s deputy executive director Benjamin Chau said Japan will be the food expo’s “partner country” for this year. More than 330 Japanese exhibitors will participate in the fair, offering a rich variety of local delicacies and haute cuisine.

Three other lifestyle fairs will be held at the HKCEC this August: the fourth edition of the Home Delights Expo, the second edition of the Beauty & Wellness Expo, and the ninth edition of the Hong Kong International Tea Fair.

There will also be the International Conference of the Modernization of Chinese Medicine & Health Products.

These fairs will have their individual dates and targeted participants.
