Oct 1, 2007

Global Sources expects to offer buyers additional specialized sourcing opportunities with the expansion of its China Sourcing Fairs to include new Gifts & Premiums and Home Products shows. The Fairs are set for Hong Kong's AsiaWorld-Expo every April and October starting April 2009.

The Gifts & Home Products Fair is scheduled to continue in and through 2008. The new shows starting in 2009 are expected to increase total annual booth capacity for China Sourcing Fairs at AsiaWorld-Expo to 17,000, up from 16,000 in 2007.

Global Sources' chairman and CEO, Merle A. Hinrichs, said: "We believe further specialization is key in this sector and vital to support the specific requirements of both volume buyers and professional suppliers. Starting in 2009, we expect to hold 10 specialized China Sourcing Fairs in Hong Kong alone, plus others in Dubai and Shanghai. Our China Sourcing Fair portfolio has rapidly developed into a powerful brand, which we are successfully expanding and extending into new markets," he added.

China Sourcing Fairs are scheduled for 2008 at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong as follows:

  • April 12-15 & October 12-15: Electronics & Components, Fashion Accessories, Underwear & Swimwear.
