"The China Sourcing Fairs fashion series are Asia's premier one-stop sourcing platform for fashion products and the majority of exhibitors are direct manufacturers," said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions. "Offering head-to-toe items for all seasons, the shows this fall feature Asia's leading pavilions for scarves, and sweaters and knitwear," he added.
Reflecting a 13.4 percent annual increase in exports of clothing and accessories from China in the first half of 2013, this year's shows have seen booth numbers increase to 1,300 with the belts and footwear pavilion increasing in size by 20 percent while the underwear pavilion has seen a 19 percent increase in size.
Wong said, "With the value of the global apparel and accessories retail market expected to reach an estimated US$1.36 trillion in 2017, it is no surprise that buyers from some of the world's leading fashion brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Bestseller, Bossini, Cotton On, Diesel, El Corte Ingles, Folli Follie, Gap, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren and Swarovski have pre-registered to attend to look for next season's hot sell items.
"The global apparel and accessories retail market is in healthy shape and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4 percent by 2017. Our Fairs give international buyers and quality exhibitors in the industry an ideal platform to meet, trade and benefit from this booming market."
On-site services extend buyer and supplier benefits
To help buyers and exhibitors meet and do business more effectively, Global Sources is organizing a series of special on-site activities at the Fairs. These include:
Trends Forum in Hall 10 features color forecasts alongside showcases demonstrating the latest color and style trend forecasts by industry experts Pantone and Fashion Snoops.
Product Showcase in Hall 7 features hundreds of fashion items helping exhibitors reach quality buyers and gain more sales opportunities.
Seminars on sourcing and trends hosted by industry professionals share sourcing tips and keep attendees abreast of the latest global trends and color forecasts.
Private Sourcing Events allow pre-selected exhibitors exclusive opportunities to meet large global companies in private during the shows. Sourcing teams from buyers including Aurora, Bossini, C&A, El Corte Ingles, Future Group, Groupe Zannier, Kmart, Lindex, METRO GROUP, and Redcats are scheduled to participate, representing combined annual sales of more than US$143.1 billion.
VIP buyer office suites provide selected buyers with an on-site mobile office which greatly enhances their sourcing effectiveness at the show.
