Hey guys,

I’m creating this thread to see if anyone is going to the canton fair in April/May this year?

I know stage one is most popular but I’m thinking of going to stage 3 as I have a few material products I’d like to source and I have no interest in selling electronics from China

Also if anyone has been before I’d love to hear any feedback tips or advice? I’ve just read when searching for other related threads that October is better and that I might be better going to a niche specific trade show which has given me second thoughts.

I do love the line on the canton fair site something along the lines of “getting into the canton fair is harder than getting a USA visa so you know the manufacturers have been vetted”

Thankfully I am not going this year. I typically only go over these days for the Electronics Show(s) in October.

Chinese tariffs should go away, but until then this show will not be as valuable as years past.

Some tips:
  • Get some good walking shoes.
  • Plan the show ahead of time, it's big.
  • Dress business casual - expect a workout, you'll be walking for 8 hours a day
  • Figure out what you want to accomplish and make a gameplan of tackling that.

Vigilante, which electronic fairs do you recommend to attend in October?
I've visited HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring edition) last year.
Do you attend HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair and China Electronics Fair (Fall Edition) or others?

Did you ever attend china electronics fair (summer edition) ?
