Record exhibitor demand for Asia’s leading produce show

15 May 2015
Bookings for stand space at ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2015 are already up 15 per cent on last year’s show, with key Asian countries ramping up their presence.
ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is enjoying record demand from exhibitors, as participating countries prepare to make an even bigger splash at this year’s event on 2-4 September in Hong Kong.
With almost four months to go before Asia’s only fresh fruit and vegetable trade show opens its doors, bookings for stand space have already exceeded last year’s final total by 15 per cent.
Exhibitors from some 35 different countries are registered to take part, and the area of exhibition space sold is currently up by 30 per cent on this stage last year.
With 20 national pavilions already registered, many countries are investing to expand their presence on the trade show floor in 2015.
Asian nations in particular are set for a strong showing. Taiwan has doubled its bookings for stand space versus this time last year, while registrations from Malaysia and Korea are up by 70 per cent and 80 per cent respectively. China, traditionally the largest exhibiting country at ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA in terms of exhibitor numbers, has booked 25 per cent more space compared with the same period last year, with Chinese trading company Goodfarmer doubling the size of its stand.
But the space race is by no means limited to Asian exhibitors, with strong demand registered from nations all over the world.
New Zealand is set to unveil an impressive national pavilion, which will be 80 per cent larger than last year’s, and kiwifruit marketer Zespri has doubled the size of its presence within the pavilion.
Turkey has already booked double the amount of space it took at the 2014 show, while other nations registering sizeable increases in exhibition space versus this time last year include Egypt (+47 per cent), Italy (+50 per cent) and Spain (+50 per cent) .
While exhibitors can still book space at the show, they are advised to register soon to secure their place.
Visitors can purchase their tickets online at and make a 40 per cent saving on their entrance fee compared with buying tickets on the door.
Well over 8,000 top-level buyers and trade professionals from more than 60 countries are expected to attend ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA on 2-4 September in Hong Kong.
