Singapore, 18 July - Singapore Gifts & Premiums Fair (SGPFair), Singapore’s pioneer and most established trade show showcasing promotional, corporate, incentive and retail gifts, saw a total of more than 10,000 visitors for the first time. The three day trade exhibition was held from 10 – 12 July at Marina Bay Sands, Expo and Convention Center.
With 158 participants, SGPFair is the largest and most successful trade show of its kind. Visitors were in for a treat with the massive variety of products from international exhibitors at SGPFair. Both local (61%) and overseas exhibitors (39%) presented unique products and the latest designs from over 30 countries, such as Australia, Germany, Korea, Japan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Italy, US, UK, and more.
International Group Pavilions from China/ Hong Kong/ Macau, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Singapore, were also present. Visitors were encouraged to purchase Eco-friendly gifts via the Eco-Gifts Showcase which housed a collection of “green” gifts, contributed by various exhibitors.
Ms Ryanne Toh, Senior Marcom Executive of Fluke South East Asia Pte Ltd said:” I am looking for Eco-friendly bags and the Eco-Gifts Showcase is a good initiative.”
Into its 14th year, SGPFair 2013 was held in conjunction with Office Expo Asia (OEA), which showcased an expanded profile of complete office solutions, bringing a new perspective to the event.
Together, SGPFair and OEA are Singapore's and the region’s leading platform for corporate and office buyers sourcing for gifts, premiums and office solutions, successfully meeting the ambitions of the corporate business domain.
SGPFair will return in 2014 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, from 16 – 18 July.
