From the frontlines of a Kowloon showroom: As a company who never relied on TRU US as a main launch partner, appointments have been good this show, numbers consistent with last January. I have been coming to HK for 10 years and my impression is definitely that buyer trips are getting shorter and there are fewer Western manufacturers investing in this.

We dabble in toys, our playground is baby products. We are one of the few American Brands that have shown at the Convention Center. Traffic was down overall, but I didn't see 1/4 or the Americans I usually see. Overall opinion on the show was the quality of appointments was very good. I would recommend more Americans getting out of Kowloon and seeing what is going on in the world at the convention center. The opportunity is huge in Asia, but you have to start and want it badly.
