Eyewear Manufacturers and Suppliers unveil the latest eyewear trends at the HKTDC Hong Kong Optical Fair


(PRWEB) November 03, 2012

More than 610 eyewear manufacturers and suppliers from 17 countries and regions are expected to exhibit at this years fair. They include first-time participation from Turkey, while France is setting up its largest ever country pavilion to showcase its finest eyewear. Hong Kong Optical fair once again set its stage to facilitate trade between international exhibitors and buyers.

Among the eight eyewear product zones presented at the fair, which covers branded optical products, spectacle lenses, sunglasses, safety eyewear and contact lens, the headlined Brand Name Gallery will house 163 renowned eyewear brands from 20 countries and regions – a must-visit section where industry players can grasp the latest intel of eyewear development and design trends, and provide a business platform for international buyers, manufacturers and suppliers to connect and build business.

Innovative technology and materials in use

Many eyewear brands are dedicated in innovation in manufacturing materials and technologies, to enhance the overall wearing experience. Hong Kong original design AZUOOs frames have 100%-handmade silicone rubber temples, so their frames are very comfortable to wear, as well as being colorful, non-toxic and not harmful to the environment. Another local design brand, REXE Eyewear, offers frames which are hand-polished using the most sophisticated tools and composite materials. The use of eco-friendly Mazzucchelli Acetate allows the frames to be recycled thus reducing the carbon footprint.

Crowned with various international awards, German brand ic! berlin is noted for producing eyewear from 0.5mm thick stainless spring steel sheet metal, using a patented hinge design which avoids the use of any screws or glue in the construction of their frames, making their products light and flexible. Scandinavian design is well known for its classic simplicity – OGA+ wood-based composite material combines the aesthetic appearance of wood but with better resistance and without the defects that wood is subject to (cracks, warping, shrinking and blemishes). The color is completely stable and will not change over time.

Customized eyewear to create unique individual look

Eyewear has evolved from an optometric product to an essential element of fashion. That explains why all the top-notched fashion brands have produced their own eyewear series.

Buyers looking for high-profile glamour will find Guy Laroche hand-made sunglasses, using Italian acetate with Swarovski crystal and metal embellishments, have a vintage feel. British brand TD Tom Davies is noted for its custom-made eyewear, with the customers name laser-engraved on the frame to create unique and exclusive eyewear.

Coloured contact lenses are all-time favourites among Asians and become increasingly popular in Europe too. They are considered part of the total fashion look. ColourVUE disposable colour contact lenses are made from newly developed Hydrogel material which is remarkably comfortable a result of excellent oxygen permeability, edge design and optimal water content, using latest generation full- and semi-cast mould methods. It prevents the colours coming in contact with the eyes, ensuring safety without side effects. Functionality-wise, another exhibitor, Sauflon, has launched the worlds first silicone hydrogel, daily disposable lens for presbyopia.

Design Competition Entries received high praise

HKTDC has given high priority to provide platform for local design talent to introduce innovative eyewear and tap into the global market. Under the theme Timeless, the 14th Hong Kong Eyewear Design Competition is well participated with more than 200 entries received.

Adding lustre to the competition is our top-notched judges panel, which includes local fashion designer-Ms Bonita Chow; Chairman of Hong Kong Designers Association-Mr Francis Lee; CEO of renowned local eyewear brand Puyi Optical Ltd-Mr Jeffery Yau; Head of Training of NHJ Style Academy from UK-Ms Isobel Kershaw; Editor of b Magazine-Mr Dal Chodha, to name a few.

Mr Jeffery Yau praises the entries, The overall standard of this years competition entries is among the best compared with previous editions. While echoing the theme, the designs also reflect Hong Kongs unique style. I also see their market potential in overseas arena. Mr Dal Chodha agrees, Im impressed by the high standard of the entries. It is really interesting to see how the three groups interpreted the brief. Most of the designs could definitely be sold internationally.

Results will be announced and presented at the fairs press conference to be held on 1 Nov. The winning entries will be exhibited at Hall 1B Brand Name Gallery Wine Cellar for global buyers viewing.







WebbMasons Promo Show Attracts More Than 150 Clients and Suppliers


Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) September 28, 2012

WebbMason (http://www.webbmason.com), an integrated marketing solutions and services company, created a BOOM in Baltimore, Maryland on September 25 at the Superhero Promo Preview Show. Coinciding with National Comic Book Day, the superhero themed event, held in the Marketing Innovation Center @ WebbMason, was packed with more than 150 attendees who engaged with promotional experts. WebbMasons supplier partnerships allowed it to showcase more than seventy product lines representing thousands of samples for attendees to see and experience.

Chris Pscherer, promotional market manager, and Jessica Lever, senior specialist, managed the project since its conception in March. The show went above and beyond because attendees not only interacted with manufacturers and distributors, but also with the products, said Pscherer.

The show proved the relevance of delivering a strategic promotional product service to our customers. It underscores the power and importance of branded merchandise when clients are willing to drive hours to attend an event. It is really difficult to substitute pictures for walking around, touching and feeling the products. Thats why clients related so well to this event, said Sarkis Hagopian, vice president of sales in Washington, DC.

This was WebbMasons second promo show, following the Get Fresh Promo Preview in April 2010. WebbMason raffled off prizes and held a networking reception for suppliers and attendees after the show.

New Top Quality Merchant Services Available to Paper Suppliers and Office Supplies Merchants


Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 26, 2012

Merchant Data Systems announced that they have teamed up with Karma Snack to expand their capabilities. A spokesperson for the company said that by doing this, they will be able to reach more clients and better serve the needs of clients and customers everywhere. This is great news for business people everywhere, this includes paper suppliers and office supplies merchants. If you are not already familiar with Merchant Data Systems, here is some important news about this company and the services they offer.

When it comes to eCommerce, Merchant Data Systems is already leading the pack and with the new services they can offer a business and with the team up with Karma Snack, their reach only gets better. Sure, Merchant Data Systems helps businesses with things like stationery, printing paper, and writing paper and other office supplies, but Merchant Data Systems does so much more than just these things. They are paying attention to the needs of their clients and business clients who are asking for services.

For example, POS integration is a service that is offered to many businesses. Point of Sale, or POS, includes the ability for the business to accept credit cards by using credit card machines that serve their needs.

Because credit card processing is not a one size fits all solution for every business, it is important to find the right merchant services for each business. Credit card processing is so important to daily business that MDS does their best to create a win win situation for every client. This is not always an easy task because there are so many programs that must be looked into and sorted through to get to the right program that is that perfect fit.

By putting merchant processing solutions together, the company is able to save their clients money by offering invoicing solutions and payroll solutions that are critical to any successful business. After all, getting money in to pay your employees is half the battle of doing business and the tools to do this work are not always easy for business people to navigate through.

Credit card terminals can be used for retailers and other forms of business that have a need to swipe cards and the shopping cart will help process online shoppers. Another awesome service is mobile payment which allows people to pay from their tablets and cell phones. One of the best ways to make sure the business gets paid is to make it easy for the customers to pay them. Offering a service like mobile payment allows the consumer to pay their bill regardless of where they are. Today, business is about creating a win win situation for everyone involved and MDS is doing that at all costs.

Merchant Data Systems is doing its very best to keep up with the ever changing needs of the customers which they service. Part of this ability to expand and grow is the key to their success. Merchant Data Systems understands the needs of the customer and business owner. It is for these reasons that they offer new business ventures a service called merchant cash advance. This allows the new business which is 30 days old or less to get some working venture capital to grow their new business quickly. This service is very much needed by every new business. This is not the only solution that is offered however. There are still other, more traditional ways for an established business to get the credit needed. Growth capital is not just about new business.

MDS also offers commercial loans and lending which can help startup businesses get a foot hold in their unique target market so growth can occur. MDS knows that spending on the consumer level is how the economy gets stimulated and jobs get created. Business is important to industries in the United States and the world. The team up with Karma Snack will help MDS to continue to help more and more business people throughout many industries in the US.

Regardless if the business needs equipment leasing and financing or needs a service because they are a high risk merchant or they just need electronic check processing, Merchant Data Systems will be ready to help the business in any way they can.
