Five China Sourcing Fairs are to launch simultaneously in Miami next year to enable exporters from China and elsewhere to meet face-to-face with American, Canadian, and Latin American buyers.

The scheduled shows include Garments & Textiles, Fashion Accessories, and Baby & Children's Products, as well as Gifts & Premiums, and Home Products.

While the US is China's largest single-country market for consumer product exports, the events are also seen as an important link to the Latin American market. Not only is demand here growing fast, but the region is around twice the size of the Indian and Russian export markets combined.

Everyone understands the huge potential in North America but for many exporters, but the Latin American opportunity is an equally exciting aspect of the new shows,” said Tommy Wong, president of organiser Global Sources Exhibitions.

“Enabling exporters to meet face-to-face with buyers at the China Sourcing Fairs in Miami, they can overcome many of the challenges inherent in selling to Latin America,” he added.

The events will provide suppliers with face-to-face opportunities to negotiate with buyers and win orders.

The China Sourcing Fairs are scheduled for July 11-13, 2011 at the Miami Beach Convention Centre.
