From our experience, Canton Fair is a great place to have new ideas and new products. If you have never attended the Fair before and you are confusing about what products to be chose, you shall have a look of the Fair.
In the Fair, buyers there will not give order directly as factories requests for huge quantity and price is not so perfect. Most buyers are coming here for information gathering. A lot of buyers collected hundreds of catalogs and sent back to their office. This is good for later contact of suppliers but not a wise choice as so many catalogs normally confuse the buyers and so heavy to take it along with. Minden Intl suggests that you could go and get some e-catalogs which is pretty convenient. Also another solution is to establish relationship with us. Our company, Minden Intl Sourcing agent will work as your own buying office in China. If you found any products interested and would like to give a try, PLS feel free to contact us. We will help you on the products sourcing, samples arrangements and all other buying services.
Also, if this is gonna be the first visiting, please feel free to contact us and let us assist you on the coming procedures. The Canton Fair Hall is big and very easy to lost your way. Upfront study of different phases and their products will help you a lot to save time and energy in the Fair.
