It turned out that I happened to be in Hong Kong at a good time, just when the China Sourcing Fair was on. The China Sourcing Fair is a series of trade shows which each run for several days at the Asia-World Expo site near Hong Kongs Airport. If you are staying in HK, do check out the hand-picked list of top value hotels which are near to Asia-World Expo.
This session of the trade fair featured electronics including car audio and entertainment, consumer electronics, mobile phones, laptops, PC accessories, security products and more. There were 8 separate halls packed with what I believe was almost 1000 different manufacturers.
The staff at the stalls are super friendly, as you’d imagine, and most all speak English. Free buses and free train tickets to and from Asia-World Expo are offered to registered guests and in the building, there are places for lunch and cafes for coffee etc.. The event is run by Global Sourcing.
The trade fair isn’t for general public, nor do any retail or sample sales take place at the show, it’s where the deals are done for products that will be filling the shelves of major retailers across the globe. Fascinating!
