More Free Resources For Buyers (virtual trade shows)

The China trade season comes twice per year in April and October. If you want to refresh yourself on what you saw during your trip, or if you couldn’t make the trip in the first place, know that Global Sources has created a virtual trade show by taking a picture of every single exhibitor’s booth and posting the images of staff, products and additional information to the Global Sources website. These online sourcing fairs are available at .

But in order to make room for the next round of shows, after 4 months, the online fair comes down and a new one goes up. So you have until August 2012 to check out the April 2012 shows for example.

I’m also happy to report that Global Sources has included the video tape of the Sourcing Seminar Series, hosted by CSIC, on their virtual trade show platform.

Wishing you successful China sourcing!
