The 13th edition of the show, held in Hong Kong from 25 ‒ 28 October 2018, welcomed a record 14,824 visitors from 106 countries and regions. With 54% of visitors coming from outside of Hong Kong, the expo lived up to its billing as an international gathering point for the environmental protection industry. Jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the fair is also co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The 2018 fair embraced the theme of “Waste Less Save More for a Low-carbon Future” to align with the global push to raise environmental awareness and strive for better waste management. Highlighted environmental sectors at the show included Waste Management and Recycling, Water Treatment and Quality Management, Green Buildings and Energy Efficiency and Green Transportation.

In line with the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area scheme to link the cities in the region and strengthen economic integration, Eco Expo Asia saw pavilions and group participations from all nine municipalities in the region as well as the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao. The Greater Bay Area Zone represented a major presence at the fair. In recognition of the extensive green business opportunities emanating from the region, a Greater Bay Area Forum was also organised to reveal more about green projects and future developments of interest to the environmental protection industry.
