Canton Fair
ChinaDirect Tour
Apr - May 2019


The Canton Trade Fair, (recently renamed the China Import and Export Fair), started in 1957, and is now one of the biggest trade events on the international trading calendar.

The Canton Fair is a biannual event, held in April and October every year.

More than sixteen broad product categories are on exhibit, and the Fair is held in three Phases, covering industrial and consumer products.

Last year, it attracted over 31,000 exhibitors, and 190,000 visitors to each of its sessions.

Who Should Attend?

People wanting to import, or current importers wanting to see the latest China has to offer.

See below a list of categories on exhibit for Phase 1, 2 and 3.

Why Attend With ChinaDirect?

With our 2 Day Master Class, you will learn all the details you need to confidently make a decision for your importing business regarding the manufacturer you choose. The service will also teach you how to select suppliers to make your product, understand the capacity they have to meet your stock turn over, and most importantly, learn to calculate the profit margin/savings you can expect by importing direct from China. The Two Day Master Class will teach you how to identify if you are dealing directly with a reputable manufacturer, not just an agent or trading company. Such a direct relationship is extremely important if you are looking for a long-term relationship.

During your trip, our professional Chinese Trade Assistant will help you avoid the pitfalls of doing business in China, and act as your guide and translator.
