Global Sources' largest-ever China Sourcing Fairs: Electronics & Components and Security Products shows opened yesterday at Hong Kong's AsiaWorld-Expo. Running through October 15, the two highly popular shows are now supplemented by the launch of a concurrent Korea Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components to showcase high-quality Korean electronics for international markets.

Together, these co-located electronics shows offer visitors over 3,280 booths. This is a strong indication of the growing popularity of Global Sources' China Sourcing Fair series, with the number of booths almost double that of the Company's first electronics show in 2006 in Hong Kong.

 Global Sources' China Sourcing Fair

"This is one of Asia's hottest trade events," said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions. "We are very enthusiastic about the October Fairs because buyers are back in force as the world economy regains momentum.

"The launch of our Korea Sourcing Fair is equally exciting. This specialized show will help high-quality Korean electronics manufacturers and suppliers reach global buyers in Hong Kong, Asia's vibrant trading hub."

Suppliers from Greater China make up the largest contingent of exhibitors at the shows. In addition to those from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, suppliers from seven other countries are also taking part. These include South Korea, India, Malaysia, the Philippines, Germany, Australia, Italy and Israel.

China Sourcing Fairs contributing to growth in trade

"Participation in our shows is robust, growing in sync with the global economic resurgence," Tommy said. "The strong attendance indicates that buyers and suppliers are stepping up their marketing and sourcing activities to gain share in growing markets around the world. Both parties anticipate good results at our Fairs.

"Demand for electronics products is strong. China's exports of electronics products hit $262.4 billion in the first half of 2010, a very encouraging increase of 38.9 percent over the same period a year ago.

"Security products sales are also expanding. Every business and organizationfrom schools and retailers to airports and hospitalsneeds security products. Moreover, consumers are increasingly looking to protect their families by investing in home and car security systems."

As a strong sign of rapidly rising demand, buyers from both established and new markets pre-registered to attend the October Fairs. These include buyers from Best Buy, Canon, Epson, Fujitsu, Hitachi, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Philips Electronics, RadioShack, Sanyo, Siemens, Toshiba and Whirlpool.
