The demand for housewares has been strong in Asia.

Over half of the revenue is generated in Asia (USD 58 billion), showing the abundant business opportunities of the industry in Asia. In 2016, over 28,000 buyers from 114 countries and regions passed through the doors for sourcing. As Asia’s leading houseware event, the fair is an ideal one-stop trading platform for quality household items.
