Intertek Participates in Hong Kong Houseware Fair 2011

Intertek Hong Kong recently exhibited at the Hong Kong Houseware Fair on 20 - 23 April 2011, which was organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. This fair is highly recognized as the largest household products fair in Asia, featuring over 2,000 exhibitors and 25,000 visitors from 130 countries and regions.

A hot topic at the Houseware Fair for both exhibitors and attendees was the introduction of the New EU Plastic Food Contacting Articles Regulation.  Intertek experts were on hand to address concerns and answer questions about the changes and new requirements, and promote our services and solutions to attendees.

Also in conjunction with the Houseware Fair, Intertek organized a joint seminar with HKTDC regarding Safety and Performance Testing for Home Living Products. Mr. Michael Wuest from Intertek’s Global Hardlines team was invited to be one of the guest speakers at this event, and presented on performance testing on cookware and kitchenware. The seminar attracted around 50 attendees from both the exhibitors and visitors.

As a whole, the Houseware Fair 2011 was a great success and Intertek Hong Kong has leveraged awareness of our services and generated numerous leads for future business.
