From what we know, travel fairs in the mainland already announced postponement mainly are those scheduled for February and early March. While in Hong Kong only exhibitions to be held in February have announced date change. But ITE is in middle of June in Hong Kong, some 4 months from now thus need further observation before any decision.
With Hong Kong becoming more peaceful, more exhibitors including the repeating and new show favorable responses, reflecting their growing confidence in ITE, Hong Kong’s only travel fair! So far, an absolute majority of the some 30 official pavilions and stands, who exhibit regularly and accounting for well over half of ITE, have confirmed, reserved or included ITE in its official program. Several repeating pavilions indicate expansion plan. Further, new pavilions from Europe and America are expected.
