IDT Expo Success
Innovation, Design, Technology and the World of Startups

Hong Kong’s InnoDesignTech Expo (IDT Expo), organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) achieved a huge success, wrapping up on Saturday with a record of more than 430 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions, including as far flung as Mexico and the United Arab Emirates. Held on 3 – 5 December, IDT Expo was supported by a number of local companies including Ecozine, as a proud media partner.
In the face of economic uncertainties and increased competitions, design and quality are increasingly critical to business success. This 11th edition of IDT Expo provided a platform for creative, technology, and IP trading professionals to meet like-minded companies and explore opportunities in Asia. It also featured the latest technologies and design solutions to help trading, manufacturing and services industries move up the value chain.
The Creative and Tech Start-up Zone of the expo debuted last year, offering a social platform to start-ups with investors, entrepreneurs and potential partners. This year, over 100 start-ups from all over the world jointed the zone including from Israel, the Czech Republic, Malaysia, Mexico and The UAE.
Barcelona, the Partner City for the 2015 expo, brought its creative flair to the event under the theme “Barcelona Inspires Design”. Leading Spanish brands such as FCBarcelona, Roca and TOUS hosted seminars and product demos to display how innovation and creativity can be applied to industries like fashion and social infrastructure. Representatives from Barcelona exchanged insights in aspects of eco-design and e-commerce with Hong Kong creative industries during the workshop.
 The principle and mission of IDT Expo is to encourage businesses to enhance competitiveness and explore new opportunities through innovation and applied technology. We believe they did it successfully, and look forward to next year's edition.
