Isabelle Alfano, Director of CARTES events, Comexposium, said: "Once again we were delighted to hold CARTES Asia in Hong Kong. The exhibition and the Asian SESAMES had some of the best technology on show and participants saw great value in the conference which featured more international and regional experts than ever before. There were many networking opportunities at these events with workshops, seminars, awards ceremony as well as a networking cocktail evening and a breakfast sponsored by the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

"Next year we hope to attract even more quality visitors when we move the show and conference to a more central location - the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. Until then we look forward to greeting exhibitors and visitors at CARTES America end of this month and CARTES in Paris later this year." added Alfano.
