The China Import and Export Fair, which is also commonly called Canton Fair, was established in Spring 1957 and has been held in Guangzhou twice a year, in spring and autumn, ever since. During its 50 year history, the fair has become a comprehensive international trade fair with the longest history, most prestigious reputation, largest scale, most variety in commodities, most attendees, and best deals in China. The name Canton Fair was officially changed to China Import and Export Fair in the 101st session, in April 2007.
The China Import and Export Fair is made up of 48 trade delegations, including thousands of foreign trade corporations, manufacturing enterprises, research institutions, foreign-invested/foreign-owned companies, and private enterprises, most of them with strong reputations and market strength.
The event has very flexible forms of participation. For example, there is an online trade fair besides traditional negotiations beside the samples. The fair leans towards export negotiations, though import business is also done here. Apart from the above-mentioned forms of participation, various kinds of technological/financial communication and coordination, commodity inspection, insurance, transportation, advertising, and consultancy activities are all carried out in various ways. Business insiders from all over the world gather in Guangzhou for professional information sharing, networking, and friendship development. >> more about Canton Fair
