With the 106th Canton Fair fast approaching and our customers busy planning on how to sell their products over the holiday season, the China Foreign Trade Centre is working to make the planning of their trip to Guangzhou to buy supplies as quick and easy as possible. To better serve buyers and sellers who operate in multiple categories of goods, the organizer of Canton Fair announced that the gaps between exhibition times have been shortened to 3 days.

The new schedule for the Canton Fair is as follows:

Phase 1: October 15-19

Electronics & Household Electrical Appliances, Hardware & Tools, Machinery and Spare Parts, Building Materials, Lighting Equipment, Chemical Products, International Pavilion

Phase 2: October 23-27

Consumer Goods, Gifts, Home Decorations

Phase 3: October 31-November 4

Textiles & Garments, Shoes, Office Supplies, Cases & Bags, Recreation Product, Medicines, Medical Devices, Health Products, Food Products

For a full list of products and more information, please refer to our website at .

For those who will attend for more than one phase, there’s a wide range of entertainment options in the area to keep upbeat visitors fully engaged, all of which can be accessed on our website. There is a local golf club for a round of “green opium” as the Chinese call it, spa options off the Pearl River, or visitors can simply find the best fitness clubs in the area. Our website also contains information on booking trips ranging from one day tours around the city, to three day tours farther afield. And for those looking for real relaxation, such as trips to the beautiful Sanya, a beach town on nearby Hainan Island, they can make the arrangements online easily through our web site.

At the Canton Fair, we help our attendants all along the way to make their visit as easy as possible, including assistance with visa registration, help setting up meetings beforehand, finding accommodation and even entertainment. Business travel can be a chore, but we are always trying to find new ways to make your visit to China easy and enjoyable, while letting you get back home to your loved ones as soon as possible.
