The Official Launching & Balloting of the 6th KL International Gifts, Premium & Stationery Fair 2014 (KLIGP 2014) was successfully held on March 11th, at the Tun Dr Ismail Hall of the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC). Touted as Malaysia and possibly Southeast Asia’s biggest gifts, premium and stationery showcase of its kind, the KLIGP 2014 – which will be held in June – shall feature more than 400 exhibitors from all over Southeast Asia, as well as Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea.
By virtue of the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) being the KLIGP’s main endorser, the event was officiated by MATRADE Chairwoman, Dato’ Noraini Ahmad. It was also during this Launching, that the balloting for the booths was cast.
Visitors to this year’s KLIGP can look forward to viewing the latest gifts and stationery products, including acrylic mementos, apparels and garments, crystal products, handicrafts, IT and electronic products, laser engraving services and indeed, many more. Staying true to the tradition of featuring gift-centric themes, this year’s KLIGP is aptly themed “All About Gifts”. The KLIGP 2014 shall also feature the following side-events and attractions, in spurring the gifts, premium and stationery industry to even greater heights:
- Promotional Product Design Award
- Best Booth Design Contest
- Exhibitors’ Networking Night
- Innovation & Creative Display Corner
- The “CLICK” Gifts, Premium & Stationery Buyers’ Guide 2014
One of the main features of the KLIGP 2014 is that it will be `digitalized’, via IT utilization. For starters, the MGPA will be introducing a mobile app that enables online registration, as well as QR codes that serve as entry passes to the KLIGP. This will automatically eliminate the need for tedious manual registration. The mobile app to be introduced will also display the location and details of individual booths via search engines.
The KLIGP 2014 is also supported by the Malaysian Retailer-Chains Association (MRCA), Federation of Textiles Garment and General Goods Malaysia, Branding Association of Malaysia, Singapore Gifts Association and Thai Gifts, Premium & Decorative Association, with more than 12,000 visitors expected to throng Halls 1 and 2 of the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), over the KLIGP 2014’s 3-day period.
