Dubai to host China Sourcing Fair from May 29
Dubai, April 28, 2012
China Sourcing Fair, scheduled to be held in Dubai next month, sets the stage for another cost-effective and direct China sourcing in the UAE.
The fair returns to the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre from May 29 to 31. The largest China-products exhibition in the Mena region responds to the ever growing demand for China-made products in the Middle East, said a statement.
China is the UAE's biggest trading partner accounting for 15.03 per cent of its imports in 2010, it said.
The event follows the fifth annual China Sourcing Fair which closed with resounding success on June 2, 2011. A record number of 10,038 buyers and importers from the neighbouring regions attended the three-day event. This included big name buyers such as AI Jaber Gallery, Al Harbi Group, Chouette Kids Club, Cisco Systems, Douran Electronic, Farrokh Fashion, Landmark, Jumbo Electronics, Nakheel, Rivoli Group, Somou Jewellery, TV Shop Ani, Welcome Group, Kraft Foods and many others, the statement said.
The show boasted a wide variety of product categories, including electronics, home products, gifts and premiums, baby and children’s products, garments and textiles and hardware and building materials.
Bill Janeri, Global Sources exhibitions general manager for developing markets, stressed the profitable sourcing opportunities brought by the China Sourcing Fairs to Dubai buyers.
'The China Sourcing Fair brings competitive advantage and real business solutions in the UAE: solutions for new and bright financial future,' he said.
The UAE has become the second-largest trade partner to China in the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the largest market for China-made product exports in the Middle East. The China Sourcing Fair provides buyers with the opportunities to meet with suppliers from Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan) face-to-face, he said.
For the past few years, numerous buyers from the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) have come to rely on Dubai’s China Sourcing Fair as their primary means to meet China-based suppliers without having to physically travel to Asia. Now in its 6th year, the exhibition is the Middle East’s largest show specializing in China-made products.
