Canton Fair – The biggest outlet in China

Do you know the Canton Fair?

I normally review products from Aliexpress and it is, by far, the best website for online shopping from China. The Canton fair is the best place for physical shopping. Not only in China but in the world!


China Import and Export Fair (CIEF), also known as the Canton Fair, started in 1957 and is held in Guangzhou every spring and autumn. It is the biggest trade fair in the world and has many records among the international trade fairs, such as, the largest scale, the most attendances, the biggest variety of goods and the highest turnover. Canton Fair consists of 48 trading delegations, including foreign trade companies, factories, institutions, foreign enterprises, private enterprises, etc. All of which are of good credibility and financial capability. Many companies on Alibaba and have stands on the fair. Which makes it the perfect place to make new business relations. Check out their website

Do you buy from Aliexpress or Alibaba?

If you have a small or big business selling products from China, I seriously regard people to go to the Canton fair. Not only will you see the great range of products available in China, the chance of hooking up with a better  and more trusted supplier, than one from Aliexpress or Alibaba, is far far better. If you just want an experience of a lifetime, you should still go. It is bigger, crazier and for shopaholics – The best place in the world!

Flocks os business people visit Guangzhou to trade and make relations in various ways. It provides a great deal of chances of commerce. It is mostly set up to be an export fair but it also focuses on import. If you want reliable business contacts in Asia, it is the place to go!

Covering an exhibition area of 1.16 million square, the 117th Canton Fair in 2015 offers around 60,000 stands, which attracts around 250,000 buyers. So if you consider to start a business that sells products from China, it is a must to visit the Canton Fair.
