Global Sources Will Launch Mobile, Wireless Sourcing Fair in Hong Kong
Expanding their reach even more, Global Sources is adding another sourcing fair to their portfolio: China Sourcing Fair: Mobile & Wireless, which will be held in April 2014 at Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Expo.
The new show is scheduled to be held each April and October and will showcase more than 800 booths at launch.
The event will be collocated with the China Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components and the China Sourcing Fair: Security Products and its pavilions will include smartphones and tablets, accessories, mobile apps and applications and wireless devices.
President of Global Sources Exhibitions, Tommy Wong, said, "We have seen increasing interest in mobile and wireless products at our electronics trade shows. Accordingly, we have decided to give buyers and suppliers a separate event to highlight the category and to enable them to do business more effectively.”
He added, "Mobile and wireless are two of the fastest-growing categories in the industry and consumer demand is coming from both developed and emerging markets. According to IDC, 1.7 billion smart connected devices are expected to ship in 2014 with more than 80 percent of this being smartphones and tablets, representing more than US$500 billion in value. We aim to help our buyers and exhibitors profit from this fast growing market.”
China Sourcing Fair: Mobile & Wireless also will host Private Sourcing Events and free conference programs to help buyers and exhibitors network and learn about the latest industry trends.
"This will be the first show of its kind in Asia. It will be built on the foundation of our strong relationships with many of Asia's most innovative suppliers as well as with many of the world's top electronics buyers,” Wong said.
The new show will be a part of Global Sources’ "Find Them and Meet Them" program in which buyers have the opportunity to meet suppliers online and then see them in person at the shows.
