Innovative high-tech gadgets grab attention of visitors
29 October 2019 – The 21st HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition), organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), opened yesterday and runs until 30 October at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). More than 2,700 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions are taking part to showcase innovative, fashionable and practical lighting products.
Not to be missed are the two highlighted zones – Connected Living • Smart Home and Smart Lighting & Solutions – which feature close to 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest smart-lighting products and solutions. Among the innovative lighting products grabbing the attention of visitors to the fair are innovative spectacles that can provide supplemental light to improve concentration and relaxation; an artificial “roof window” that supplies close-to-natural sunlight; an offline smart control; a universal remote control; a smart LED table lamp with Wi-Fi and wireless charging; and an IoT platform that enables control of many home appliances.
Meanwhile, the HKTDC Hong Kong International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo returns in its fourth edition from 29 October to 1 November at AsiaWorld-Expo. The latest products from more than 400 exhibitors from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan and a first-time exhibitor from Thailand are on display. The twin lighting shows together form the world’s largest lighting marketplace, offering buyers a wide variety of the latest products and providing a one-stop platform for sourcing products and gathering market information.
Viewing safety as its top priority, the HKTDC has stepped up its support to exhibitors and buyers during the current social unrest in Hong Kong. The following measures have been put in place:

Imagine natural sunlight in your office 365 days a year. This panel light emulates the light spectra of blue skies and clouds using special LED technology and optical design combined with an intelligent control system. Having natural lighting indoors can boost working performance and is beneficial to the tuning of the human biological clock, which is why it is popular among offices and health institutions.

For those wary of security issues related to Internet-connected devices, this socket can be activated using the user’s own voice. Record a command and your voiceprint becomes a unique “password” to control lighting and appliances. The whole process is offline – there’s no need for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or an app – making it friendly for the not-so-tech-savvy.
