Mobile Electronics, the second phase of the Global Sources Electronics show -- the world’s largest electronics trade show, will run from Apr 18 to 21 to showcase the latest mobile products and technology in AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong.

As the world’s largest mobile electronics sourcing event, the show features 2,600 booths of products including VR/AR gadgets, sports and health wearables, mobile speakers and headphones, wireless charging, cases and covers, smartphones and tablets. “The market for virtual reality technology is expected to be a trillion-dollar industry in the next two decades. With pavilions, experience zones and an industry summit Global Sources hosts Asia’s biggest VR/AR industry event,” said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Electronics Group.

The Mobile electronics show opens as makers will ramp up production of standalone wireless VR headsets, with HTC and Oculus leading the pack.

While VR backpacks temporarily solved the need for a powerful PC on which the headsets run, inside-out tracking is expected to gain steam for an untethered VR experience. This will be a major trend in VR head-mounted displays (HMDs), with external sensors already built into the headsets for motion tracking.

The show features a VR/AR pavilion with more than 250 booths. It is complemented by an experience zone where buyers can try the latest VR devices including VR backpacks, VR fitting rooms and shopping, VR spaces and AR smart glasses.

The second VR/AR/MR Ecosystem Summit will be held on April 18 and 19 and features speakers from Intel, Microsoft, HTC Vive, ARM, AMD, JD, LetinVR and EmdoorVR.

The show will also include a new ready-to-buy zone with products in inventory and for delivery within 48 hours.

There will also be a Brand Zone to showcase 450 booths of exhibitors manufacturing their own designs and brands, while visitors may discover more than 120 innovative products with on-site demonstrations in the Top Picks demo zone.

The Analyst’s Choice booklet highlights innovative and important products at the show selected by expert analysts.

This year, a wide range of services will help online and Amazon sellers source more effectively. This includes a new e-commerce pavilion, a welcome center with products from exhibitors that accept small orders.

The Source2Sell seminars will be where online retail experts will share sourcing tips and best practices.

The 3-day Global Sources Summit will also helps online sellers to develop strategies to source and grow their business.
