China Sourcing Fair: Garments & Textiles To Launch In 3 Cities In 3 Months

Global Sources (NASDAQ:GSOL) is expanding its China Sourcing Fairs in 2010 with the launch of Garments & Textiles. The show is scheduled to be held in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Johannesburg, South Africa in October, November, and December, respectively.

As perhaps one of the most dynamic launches ever for a new show, suppliers from Greater China will be meeting face-to-face with leading buyers in 3 major trading and sourcing hubs. The Hong Kong event will attract a global audience of importers. Singapore is the key trading center for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), China’s fourth-largest export market, while Johannesburg is the primary gateway for China’s fast-growing trade with Africa.

The Fairs aim to showcase finished products ranging from ready-to-wear garments such as casual, bridal, active, beach, lounge, and underwear, to fabrics, fibers, yarns, trimming materials and accessories.

“These new shows build upon and complement our existing Garments & Textiles online marketplace, print and digital magazines, and Private Sourcing Events,” said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions. “China’s textile and garment exports reached $15.5 billion in January 2010 alone, and as the global economic recovery takes hold, overseas demand for garments and textiles is expected to increase.”

China Sourcing Fair: Garments & Textiles is scheduled for:

  • Hong Kong: Oct. 27-30, and thereafter every April and October at the AsiaWorld-Expo. (The event is to be co-located with China Sourcing Fairs: Fashion Accessories and Underwear & Swimwear.)
  • Singapore: Nov. 22-24, Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
  • South Africa: Dec. 1-3, Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.

Chairman and CEO Merle A. Hinrichs said: “The aggressive expansion of our China Sourcing Fairs into new categories and new locations is a three-pronged strategy. First and foremost, because import buyers do not place large volume orders through online marketplaces, virtually all suppliers want the face-to-face opportunities at our shows -- where they can negotiate with buyers and win orders. Second, the shows heavily leverage the buyer community and the promotional support of our other media. Lastly, with various initiatives underway to further integrate all of our media, the expanded show schedule will provide tremendous additional exposure and sales leads for the advertisers using our online and print media.”
