Global Sources Electronics exhibition move-in day

As I mentioned to you guys the other day, I am exhibiting at the Global Sources exhibition in Hong Kong at the Asia World Expo from 11th-14th of April.

They claim to be the largest Electronics Sourcing show of its kind. It is my first time exhibiting there so I am really excited for tomorrow.



With 90% exclusive exhibitors, the show is Asia’s leading sourcing event for consumer electronics. Electronic components, and security products, and the platform of choice for a growing number of buyers, including big-name importers like Sam     sung, Hewlett-Packard and Panasonic.

My main goal for the show will be to find new customers/wholesalers for my brand Mandarin-Gear. I am showcasing all of my products in my private label (see previous post) and I am certain that I will get some interest from buyers. There should be well over 5,000 buyers from different countries worldwide, so I am sure it will be worth it.

I went there early morning and my assistant helped me move in things:


I ordered a few packaging boxes & banners prior to the fair and was able to set up my booth pretty quickly:


The exhibition management is also extremely efficient. My key account executive showed up shortly after I arrived and was answering the few questions I still had. The whole booth cost me 35,000HKD (4,514USD) and I even get half of that back from the Hong Kong government’s SME fund as I am a registered HK company. How awesome is that?


This is how it eventually looked like after an hour:



The tradeshow itself is pretty huge. There are 11 halls and mine is one of the bigger ones. I am standing in the middle of the hall taking below photo, so you can imagine how large the whole hall is.


It was still pretty empty and people slowly started to move in when we left. Decoration of most booths have been completed yesterday. The bigger booths were still under construction:


I will update you tomorrow on how the day went with buyers. I will also look & source for some new products myself if the time allows it and post it here. If you have any questions let me know and stay tuned for more updates tomorrow!

Manuel, thanks for taking the time, to detail you sourcing trips, and conventions for your own label. I have worked, many trade shows, over the years, However, I have never visited, a manufacturer, and I appreciate you sharing your sourcing trip with us.
