Seven Québec companies took part in the International ICT Expo, held in Hong Kong in April. Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the annual information and communication technology event featured a variety of talks and seminars, along with a trade fair in a huge exhibition hall.

Buyers, major industry players and hundreds of companies from around the world converged on Hong Kong in search of business solutions, partners and outsourcing opportunities in China. Networking sessions were a chance for the Québec participants to meet a number of potential partners.

Québec’s presence at the International ICT Expo was coordinated by Export Québec and Québec’s two government offices in China. Representatives of the following companies attended the event:

  • Jesta I.S.
  • Mnubo
  • Metro Optic
  • Neotelis
  • Sologlobe
  • Tangoe Canada
  • OSF Global Services

Extremely positive results

All of the participants in the Québec mission were able to establish promising contacts during targeted meetings and networking activities.

Technological solutions provider Jesta I.S., for example, reasserted its intention to set up shop in China in order to support its local customers. It met with two major potential clients.

Machine-to-machine (M2M) cloud applications developer Mnubo is firmly committed to returning to China, with a view to developing this high-potential market.

Metro Optic is keenly interested in cloud computing centres, and sees great development potential in Hong Kong and China.

Hong Kong’s International ICT Expo is Asia’s largest information and communication technology trade fair. With 600 booths, this year’s edition welcomed over 30,500 visitors.

Positive reactions to government support

Export Québec and the Québec government office in Shanghai (BQS) worked together closely to plan and deploy the mission to the International ICT Expo. Their efforts were clearly successful, given the extensive positive feedback from the participating Québec companies.
