HOFEX 2019


The HOFEX 2019 exhibition was held from 7 to 10 May this year at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Following the theme "SMART TOWNGAS", Towngas cooperated with six partnered exhibitors, namely Champion Group International Limited, Wang Sang Chun Yick Holdings Limited (general agent: Man Dat Gas Engineering Company Limited), Pro-Fit Industrial Co. Limited, Pacific Foodservice Equipment Co. Limited, Kitchen Icon Limited and Golden Target Kitchen Engineering Limited. Drawing inspiration from six core elements, namely, creativity, safety, automation, efficiency, environmental protection and cool kitchen, we introduced a series of innovative and automated gas appliances and equipment to commercial and industrial customers. The new products bring greater competitiveness to the industry and improve the occupational safety and health of employees. They also optimize cooking processes and kitchen management, enabling chefs to bring out the advantages of flame-cooking.

Towngas is continuously working towards environmental protection and sustainable development, through the provision of safe and reliable green energy for the industry. This year we collaborated with our fellow exhibitors to include online-to-offline (O2O) elements in their booths. Using the internet and smartphones, participants are able to learn more about the benefits of using commercial and industrial gas equipment, as well as latest technological developments in the catering industry. This in turn has helped foster new business opportunities.
