Yiwu Fair & Canton Fair: Must-visits for Overseas Buyers
YIWU, China, Oct. 19, 2013 / PRNewswire — The 114th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair) opened on Oct. 15. As one of the world’s most influential expos in China, it has attracted many overseas buyers and visitors. The 19th Yiwu Fair, which enjoys equal popularity as the Canton Fair, will also be held from Oct. 21 to 25. According to border inspection authorities, within three days, the Canton Fair received more than 100,000 visitors from over 50 countries, including Japan, the U.S., South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, the UK, Canada, India and the Philippines.
Foreign businessmen visiting the Canton Fair will have the rare opportunity to concurrently visit the Canton Fair and Yiwu Fair. Given that the Canton Fair goes until early November, overseas buyers interested in the China commodities business will find it convenient. At the same time, with faster transportation, round-trips between Yiwu and Guangzhou are easier, meaning twice the business opportunities. Recently, the Transportation Bureau of Yiwu introduced “Transportation Support during 2013 Yiwu Fair,” which added bus and taxi capacities for the Yiwu Fair — making transport for buyers easy between the two fairs.
To meet the above needs and make it easy for overseas buyers to visit the upcoming Yiwu Fair, organizers have arranged all the details, including visiting arrangements like VIP channels and foreign language services for domestic and overseas buyers. Other arrangements include flights, hotel reservations, and shuttle buses.
To attract more overseas buyers to the Yiwu Fair, organizers have established a special subsidy. Buyers meeting the following three conditions can get 1,200 RMB for their flight tickets: 1) Visiting the Canton Fair or Hong Kong Mega Show 2013; 2) Entering China after Oct. 1; 3) Having transport receipts to Yiwu.
