2008 China Sourcing Fairs in Dubai Expand 60 Percent; Event Is The Largest China-products Exhibition in The Middle East
Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Sources (NASDAQ:GSOL) announced today that its three upcoming China Sourcing Fairs in Dubai will be over 60% larger this year. The China Sourcing Fairs: Gifts & Home Products, Electronics, and Fashion Accessories, will feature manufacturers from Greater China. The co-located events will be held June 9-11, 2008, at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Global Sources' executive director, Sarah Benecke, said: "We are exceptionally pleased at the commitment Greater China suppliers are making to the Middle East and to the event this year. The China Sourcing Fairs in Dubai are now the largest China-products exhibition in the Middle East."
The China Sourcing Fairs in Dubai serve importers and volume buyers in the Middle East and North Africa region who seek high quality products from competitive suppliers in Greater China. More than 7,100 buyers from 95 different countries attended last year's inaugural event.
More exhibitors, more product categories
While the 2007 Fair focused on Chinese exhibitors of gifts and home products, this year's show will again feature hundreds of gifts and home products exhibitors, plus add full exhibition halls of electronics and fashion accessories.
"As product life cycles shorten and companies look for new, exciting products from innovative and creative suppliers, we are thrilled to be able to offer buyers from around the region an even larger exhibition and expanded product categories from which they can choose," Benecke said.
"Product variety, reliable suppliers and cost-effective products have become even more important in this year of rising inflation," said Bill Janeri, Global Sources' general manager of the Middle East. "Buyers in the Middle East are actively looking for new ways to attract consumers, and finding new and interesting products that can deliver reasonable margins is one way they are doing it," Janeri added.
