The 127th session of the China Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair, will be held online from June 15 to 24 in response to the pandemic. This is both a pragmatic response to the pandemic and a major initiative for innovative development. Although it will be held online, the 127th is still worth of attending. Why?
According to the Ministry of Commerce, enterprises will not be charged participation fees for the 127th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair). Meanwhile, cross-border e-commerce platforms will also not be subject to any fees. That means the online fair will not charge any fees from exhibitors. Besides, for buyers or visitors, it cost almost nothing to attend the online Canton Fair compared with going to Guangzhou (ticket, hotel, visa and so on).
The fair will also provide live stream services for exhibitors to promote their products to buyers via custom live channels. The live stream will run 24/7 and will allow either face-to-face negotiation or mass marketing promotion to audiences. Can you imagine that your suppliers act like an advertisement host to promote his products on the screen? It’s still unknown that whether the audiences could interact with the suppliers by the bullet subtitles. But you may source product and contact with supplier through the live show like Twitch/Livestream/YouTube live.
What is the different between e-commercial platform and this Canton Fair when it is held online? The first online Canton Fair will assemble a great numbers of suppliers of quality and specialty products that covers 16 major export categories, such as home appliances, consumer goods, textiles, medical and health care. Powered by advanced information technology, the Canton Fair will provide around-the-clock online services for product promotion, matchmaking and business negotiations, enabling both Chinese and international businesses to place orders remotely.
Sounds like BuildMost platform, isn’t it? As to furnishing & building materials, there are a number of suppliers other than those at Canton Fair. But similarly, these suppliers on BuildMost should be audited strictly as Canton fair did to the exhibitors. So if you engaged in this industry, BuildMost could be better choice for you.
