Canton Fair (also known as the China Import and Export Fair) is the largest trade fair with the largest scale, the most complete exhibit variety, the broadest distribution of overseas buyers and the greatest business turnover held in Guangzhou (Canton) China. Over 20,000 vendors and about 100,000 buyers attend the fair twice a year. 

The Canton Fair is an all-inclusive show where you can even find any product. Because there were so many products, the exhibition was divided into three phases. Phase 1 focuses on electrical and electronic products, industrial products, vehicles and automotive parts. Learn more at our educational forum on August 14thin Troy.

The Canton Fair is a strong symbol of the opening of China. Canton Fair is a comprehensive international trading event with the longest history, the largest scale, the most complete exhibit variety, the largest buyer attendance, the greatest business turnover and the best credibility in China. It is “China’s No.1 Fair”.
