The 2011 Canton Fair is 1 month away and we are excited to meet clients & a few suppliers when we will visit the 109th China Import and Export Fair.

The Fair is the largest comprehensive trade fair in China.  It is held twice each year and the show includes a large variety of exhibits drawing Entrepreneurs & businessmen from all over the world.

The show has changed a lot over the years and will now by held at the China Import and Export Fair Complex.   The address of this venue is No. 380, Yuejiang Zhong Road, Guangzhou, China.

Travel Hint: If travelling from Hong Kong consider taking the train to Guangzhou.  Get your China Visa (Updates) in advance from China Travel Service (or get Apec Card). Register in advance for a badge or risk wasting an hour lining up at the show.
