Eco Expo Asia and HKTDC Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair 2018

From waste management to electric cars, and from wine tastings to gala dinners – here are two premier Hong Kong events to look out for

Want to know how buildings of the future will recycle more stuff? Or why waste management is one of the most pressing issues for cities to tackle?

Eco Expo Asia is coming to Hong Kong for its 13th edition in October, putting the theme of waste management front and centre. The “Waste Less Save More for a Low-carbon Future” theme will increase awareness of current pressing environmental issues and facilitate the exchange of technology and solutions from around the world, say the event organisers.

You can tour international pavilions to see what countries around the world are doing to reduce, recycle and reuse, you can see what pioneering products are being created by startups, and you can even take an electric vehicle for a test drive.

The first three days (25-27 October) are open to trade visitors only, but the final day, October 28, will be open to the public for free.

Hong Kong turns its sights, and its palate, to wines and spirits in November.

The 11th edition of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair welcomes more than 1,000 international exhibitors, offering wine, spirits and sake as well as events such as whisky and brandy tastings, master classes, cocktail demonstrations and seminars to boost your wine and spirit knowledge.

The first two days (8-9 November) are open to trade visitors only, but the final day, 10 November, is open to both trade visitors and the public by ticket admission.
