News this week: NASDAQ-listed Global Sources has announced a sold out second edition of its China Sourcing Fairs in Brazil more than a month in advance. The three-day trade show will feature more than 930 booths – up more than 80% from 2012.
The show will be held at the Imigrantes Exhibition Center in Sao Paulo from 8th to 10th September 2013. The co-located shows will cover Electronics, Gifts and Premiums, Garments and Textiles, and Hardware and Building Materials. In Brazil, the company’s China Sourcing Fairs are managed by Milton Exhibits.
Tommy Wong, president of Global Sources Exhibitions, said, “In a world where near-flat growth has been the norm in recent years, Brazil’s growing economy provides immense trade opportunities for Greater China suppliers. With Brazil set to host the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016, its stature and importance as a market for manufactured goods will continue to increase.”
