Showcasing over 550 exhibitors that travel from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea, the China Sourcing Fair in Miami not only represents an international trade value, but also contributes to the local economy as each exhibitor has at least 2 representatives who stay in Miami Beach a minimum of 5 hotel nights, generating revenue to the hospitality and tourism industries of the city, while being a testament of the Miami’s position as an international business destination. Last year alone it attracted over 6,000 trade professionals from 60 different countries.
“Demand of China-made products is on the rise, the China Sourcing Fairs here in Miami act as a platform where buyers and manufacturers meet and conduct business, and pre registration from buyers in Latin America are up 15% this year, indicating strong interest in the fairs” says Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions, a division of Global Sources, a leading business to business media company, primary facilitator of trade with Greater China, and producers of the China Sourcing Fairs around the world.
A specialized two-day conference program entitled “How to Source from China” will be featured, free to all fair attendees and taught by on-the-ground industry experts, revealing the ins and outs of importing consumer products from Asia. The conference will be held June 26 and 27.
With sister trade shows in Sao Paulo, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, New Delhi and Dubai, the Miami edition has a special focus in the Latin American market and Hispanic businesses, although attendees come from everywhere in the region looking for opportunities to find products such as electronics, home products, fashion accessories, garments, textiles, gifts, and much more.
