華人工商大展創建於1982年，當初成立的宗旨是為了創造商家與顧客面對面的購買契機。開始從一個只有60多家參展廠商及一個展覽大廳的篳路藍縷階段，經過三十多年的不斷成長與蛻變，今天，華人工商大展設有6個大型展覽大廳，展會面積涵蓋40萬個展示空間，1000多個參展廠商，8個節目不間斷的表演舞台，3個各具特色的美食廣場。參展廠商，表演節目及參觀群眾均來自不同族裔和背景，或本地或國際，多元文化已是華人工商大展的特色之一。華人工商大展的英文名稱也由當初的Chinese American Expo正式更名為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.
