It’s free to attend the Canton Fair. However, you need a visa to visit China and you have to pay for airfare and hotel. Probably, your total expenses will not exceed $3-4K.
But is it worth going?
Yes! If you’ve been doing your product sourcing via Alibaba, you probably already know that going back forth between suppliers is extremely time-consuming.
Firstly, you can’t speak to suppliers face to face. Using email and chat programs to communicate is time-consuming.
Secondly, you have to wait for samples made and shipped to you which last for several weeks.
However, when you attend the Canton Fair, you can easily engage with hundreds of Chinese vendors in the span of just a few days. And the good thing is that all the vendors will have samples in their booths for customers to touch and feel for quality.
In fact, it’s possible to place large bulk orders for products right at the fair and you can get pricing and availability in a matter of minutes.
In addition, the face to face communication with your vendor is priceless in terms of establishing trust and rapport which makes the whole sourcing process infinitely smoother and faster.
Well, you’d better get a business visa but a tourist visa that does not require that you show an invitation to the fair is also ok.
Overall, a Chinese visa doesn’t cost that much ($160 or so) and I recommend that you purchase the 10-year visa if you ever plan on going more than once.
Because there are only a handful of places around the country that can issue you a visa in person, I recommend that you use a China visa service in your area.
Do People In the Canton Fair Speak English?
In general, every booth at the Canton Fair will have at least one employee that speaks English, so that you can communicate with. And if you stick with the standard lingo of e-commerce, you should be fine.
If you need someone to handle everything on your behalf, you can surely ask for some local agents to help. Here, EJET is the perfect sourcing agent that is always ready to offer our helping hand. We can provide you with services of the city guide, interpretation, taking note, placing the order, receiving goods and shipping goods home, etc.
