The 128th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair), and also its second virtual showcase, kicked off on October 15. About 26,000 exhibitors from 50 exhibition sections have brought more than 2.3 million products across 16 categories to the 10-day event, of which 691,500 products are making their debuts, according to the fair.
The China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair)’s 128th edition will go online from October 15 to 24. The 10-day virtual exhibition will leverage its digital interaction features to create new opportunities for global companies to source products and forge trade partnerships.
The Canton Fair’s International Pavilion held an online promotion and communication conference on June 3 to help buyers and business associations in China get prepared for the first-ever online session of Canton Fair, which will be held from June 15 to 24.
The coronavirus has struck the trade show sector with the International Housewares Association reporting that it would not open the International Sourcing Pavilion at the upcoming Inspired Home Show and reports circulating that the Canton Fair has suspended exhibitions.
