Forget Atlanta and Dallas. Today through Nov. 2, buyers can purchase (1) fashion accessories and (2) underwear and swimwear at the China Sourcing Fairs at Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Expo.
In three weeks — for those who didn’t make today’s fair — buyers may go to Mumbai, India, for (1) electronics and components and (2) hardware and building materials.
Then, in December, in Shanghai, China, the China Sourcing Fairs will feature (1) fashion accessories again and (2) baby and children’s products.
The two fairs opening today feature nearly 1,000 booths, with the majority of exhibitors from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. There also are booths from Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Italy, the Netherlands, Israel and Australia. One pavilion is dedicated to suppliers from India.
Today’s fair showcases two new pavilions for (1) headwear, scarves and gloves and (2) evening bags. Also available to buyers are handbags; jewelry; belts; hats and caps; footwear; socks; ties; hair accessories; umbrellas; sunglasses; and travel bags and luggage.
Available at the underwear and swimwear show are sleepwear; fabrics; lace and trimmings; and beachwear. This particular show is sponsored by Hyosung, which claims to be the second-largest producer of spandex in the world.
These fairs, organized by Global Sources, attract more than 13,000 buyers from more than 100 countries and regions.
