HKTDC Promotes First Data Merchant Solutions Pogo>™ at Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair 2015

The Collaboration

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) is the international marketing arm for Hong Kong-based traders, manufacturers and service providers. Their mission is to create opportunities for Hong Kong companies, providing a range of services to help global trade and promote Hong Kong as a platform for doing business with China and throughout Asia.

The 8th Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair, organised by HKTDC, was held from 5 to 7 November 2015 at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). At this fair, there were not only wine and spirits, beers and other alcoholic beverages of world class quality, but also wine education, wine production, logistics and services to buyers from worldwide.

The Challenge

At mega fairs, trade visitors and consumers may not be carrying much cash, yet they also expect a quick and convenient transaction process for their purchases. To serve the real-time behaviour of the crowd, participating merchants required a mobile payment device to serve their customers on the go. 

The Solution

Pogo> was the chosen, recommended mobile POS solution of HKTDC at the HK International Wine & Spirits Fair due to its high mobility and fast transaction time. Pogo> by First Data Merchant Solutions gave merchants and small business owners the ability to accept credit card payments on the go.
