As mentioned in the previous post, the ‘Salon de Te’ section of the HKTDC Watch Exhibition in Wanchai is highlighted as some of the Elites or most Creative section of the show. Today some of us took a preview tour before it is ready for show from tomorrow 8th September onwards, it is still being organized right now with so many Exhibitors preparing their stands. It will last until the 12th of September, the day when it is open FREE to the Public.
