华人工商大展创建於1982年，当初成立的宗旨是为了创造商家与顾客面对面的购买契机。开始从一个只有60多家参展厂商及一个展览大厅的筚路蓝缕阶段，经过三十多年的不断成长与蜕变，今天，华人工商大展设有6个大型展览大厅，展会面积涵盖40万个展示空间，1000多个参展厂商，8个节目不间断的表演舞台，3个各具特色的美食广场。参展厂商，表演节目及参观群众均来自不同族裔和背景，或本地或国际，多元文化已是华人工商大展的特色之一。华人工商大展的英文名称也由当初的Chinese American Expo正式更名为Asian American Expo。 Founded in 1982 as a means of gathering the local community together – much has changed over the last 30 years for the Asian American Expo. When it first launched, the event was called the Chinese American Expo, with only 60 exhibitors and a simple goal of bringing together local Asian businesses and consumers under one roof. From those humble beginnings, the Asian American Expo has expanded both its reach and its scale. Today the Asian American Expo features 6 large expositions halls encompassing over 400,000 exhibition space, 1,000+ vendors, 8 non-stop performing stages, and 3 separately unique food courts. Attendees from all different ethnic and work backgrounds, from both local and international are bound to be at the Expo.
The Asian American Expo is hosted at the beginning of each year to celebrate the coming of the Lunar New Year Festival, with the goal recreating the New Year celebrations found across Asia at this time of the year. Food, shopping, entertainment and fun – these are all annual staples that can be found at each year’s event. All of this success would not be made possible without the support from the greater community both locally and internationally.
