Top global buyers including Adidas, American Gift, Avon Products, Carrefour, El Corte Ingles, Fossil Group, Galleria, Li & Fung, Ralph Lauren, Redcats, Sime Darby, SM Retail, Target and Tupperware are expected to attend the China Sourcing Fairs: Gifts & Premiums, Home Products, Fashion Accessories, Garments & Textiles and Underwear & Swimwear plus India Sourcing Fair: Garments & Accessories and Korea Sourcing Fair: Gifts & Premiums.

"This spring's Fairs offer buyers expanded sourcing options all under one roof. The Fairs feature the largest range of bags in Hong Kong with more than 300 booths. In addition, the scarves pavilion is the largest of its kind in Asia showcasing trendy designs from quality suppliers," said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions.

The Fairs are supported by a number of organizations, including China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Shanghai Pudong Sub-council, Association of Exporters & Producers of Indonesian Handicraft, Gifts Association Singapore, Hong Kong General Chamber of Small and Medium Business, Korean Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, Malaysian Retailer-Chains Association, Shunde Home Appliance Chamber of Commerce and the Taiwan Hat Exporters' Association.

The majority of booths, some 90 percent, are taken by suppliers who exhibit exclusively at China Sourcing Fairs and more than 75 percent are direct manufacturers.
