"This spring's Fairs offer buyers expanded sourcing options all under one roof. The Fairs feature the largest range of bags in Hong Kong with more than 300 booths. In addition, the scarves pavilion is the largest of its kind in Asia showcasing trendy designs from quality suppliers," said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions.
