Safety and Emergency

Health and safety are everyone's top priority. HPMKT rolled out a new emergency alert system for the October 2019 Market, and it will be continuing for this upcoming Market.

Press Kits

Another excellent marketing tool offered by the Market Authority is their Press Kits (both digital and print). The press kits are available for the media to showcase destination exhibitors. Based on testing done by the Authority, this has proven to be effective in getting exhibitors additional exposure. Please note that these kits get erased every Market.
