While I am here looking for gift related items, I have found myself looking at products which may work in newsagencies which we do not carry today. Some good new opportunities to expand our retail offer and to leverage the lower manufacturing cost of China production.  The booths here are packed with items we would not see at newsagent trade shows in Australia.  And the prices!

As is always the case with Hong Kong trade shows, it’s a huge eye opener. Secretly, I like listening to the questions European and American buyers ask – fascinating!
