Eco Expo Asia 2022, jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and co-organised by the Environment and Ecology Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), drew to a successful close.
This year’s expo adopted the HKTDC’s EXHIBITION+ hybrid model, combining access to the physical show and engaging a wider global audience virtually. It attracted close to 250 exhibitors from 9 countries and regions, an increase of 18% compared to last year. Nearly 9,200 industry buyers visited the physical expo and browsed products online.
Under the theme Green Innovation for Carbon Neutrality, the show explored the technologies aimed to decarbonise the world. Highlights included pavilions from Japan, Canada and Hong Kong showcasing a wide range of green innovations and technologies. Products and solutions in the fields of green transportation, new energy, green finance and ESG, waste management and more were on display at the expo. Finally, the Eco Asia Conference covered key environmental issues, including green finance, hydrogen economy, circular economy, carbon neutrality, green retrofits and the latest development of related government projects in Hong Kong.
The exhibitors and visitors were equally pleased with this year’s offering and expressed their appreciation for an in-person event in Hong Kong, recognising the importance of face-to-face interactions and hybrid events for business communication. The expo provided a much-needed online and offline platform, facilitating industry recovery and promoting business collaboration.
Japan Pavilion returned to the expo with the largest line-up ever and a buyer plans to purchase products worth HK$5 million
