Global Sources to launch China Sourcing Fairs in Miami

Retail Editor 9, August 9, 2010

Hong Kong - B-to-B trade facilitator Global Sources will launch five sourcing fairs in Miami next year targeting North American and Latin American buyers.


The China Sourcing Fairs are scheduled for July 11-13, 2011 at the Miami Beach Convention Centre. The scheduled shows include: Gifts & Premiums, Home Products, Fashion Accessories, Garments & Textiles and Baby & Children's Products.


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


According to Global Sources, the Latin American market for imports is growing at roughly twice the size of the Indian and Russian export markets combined. Latin American imports in 2009 from all sources totaled $642 billion, and in 2010 and 2011 the World Bank estimates Latin American imports to grow by 10.3% and 5.6%, respectively, led by Brazil and Mexico.
