One of the affects of Covid19 is that Canton Fair didn’t take place this Spring. This is the largest and longest running trade show in China that happens twice a year – once in Spring and once in the Fall.
However for the first time in over 100 years, the Canton Fair has gone online. The organizers will host a virtual Canton Fair starting June 15. Supposedly they will feature live streaming from exhibitors from the trade show.
This is the first time they’re hosting it and how well it will work is anyone’s guess. But if you are in the process of sourcing a product it’s worth a shot to visit the Canton Fair online here: https://www.cantonfair.org.cn/en/buyer
If you do try it, I’d be curious how it well it worked for you!
