No Comments

Grease Hero will be attending the 2018 Tokyo International Gift Show (TIGS) this September 4-7th. This is an opportunity for Grease Hero to reach buyers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region.

Grease Hero is attending this event along with other companies headquartered in Hawai’i as part of the Hawai‘i Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) program. This will be the seventh consecutive year that DBEDT is organizing the Hawai‘i Pavilion at TIGS, which is the largest international trade show in Japan. The event draws more than 200,000 buyers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers to meet exhibitors at more than 4,500 booths spread out over the exhibition area (Big Island Now).

“We are excited about the opportunity to showcase unique Hawaii-made products at this event,” said DBEDT Director Luis P. Salaveria. “As we continue our efforts to grow our local economy, TIGS allows us the venue to expand distribution in the global marketplace. Hawai‘i companies that participated in last year’s show collectively saw more than $13 million in export sales.

“Hawaii’s pavilion is a featured location that buyers look for every year, since we’ve been participating,” said Dennis Ling, administrator of DBEDT’s Business Development and Support Division. “Distributors, retailers, and importers realize the Hawaii brand is established for its quality and uniqueness in the Japan market.” (HiSTEP)
