Is it worth spending money on a trip to attend exhibition?

 

Is it worth spending money on a trip to attend exhibition? In recent years, there has been no lack of "B2B Online will replace all" and the like. People all over the world access the Internet and more, to raise such questions and then normal.

By the survey of very many guests who participated in the Canton Fair. We are sure to tell you it is worth to spend money to spend time to attend the real exhibition show for the following reasons.

As a matter of fact, the majority of manufacturers all over the world,  they are not very skilled use of the Internet promotion. Their latest products would be starting at the real exhibition shows , when appear on the internet, is basically a year latter; There are many industries can not be described and communicated through the internet, it must personally feel and touch, the Internet and then a detailed description of the content, can not make a business decision.

The the manufactures attend exhibition will very costly to spend time to spend energy, from the frequency of exhibitors and booth size and the quality of field personnel, especially model quality. Professionals are able to deduce a lot of information from the details in the exhibition; And vice versa, let's imagine the communication costs if manufacturers spend money to make a website to sell products, received at least 99% of the intention information is noise, screening costs are too high; For example, Canton Fair is the highest threshold of one of the exhibition, mainland residents to try to attend more difficult than applying for a US visa, will you receive any spam? The exhibition is also a chance for the world to know you personally. As we know, making friends is an important part of doing business success.

The Internet can reduce communication costs, but also make more screening costs increase, the more the need to show companies and buyers to show the strength and sincerity. So, spending some money and time to masquerade the show is worth it.

Business Card

When you give business cards or pictures, always use both of your hands. When you receive business cards or pictures, always receive them with both of your hands and be sure to look at the card/picture while you are in front of your guest. Sometimes the English translation will be on the back, so take a look. If it is all in Chinese, ask your translator to translate for you, especially the given name. He will also spend some time looking at your card and may try and pronounce your name. Never write on the card in front of the person who gave it to you.

You will notice in China that a persons family name is always listed before his given name. For example, the name Huang Shao Qiang would be Mr. Huang. It is also becoming quite common to find English names on the cards, especially in Guangzhou, Shanghai & Beijing, which makes it very easy!

Words of advice and notice

  • Canton Fair is China's largest trade fair and attended by over 160,000 people from 160 countries. Hotel occupancy is extremely high and most hotels are OVER booked. Under this situation, hotel insists on reservation by credit card guarantee or prepayment from guests - and guest paying in advance will be guaranteed a room. We advise you not to wait until last minute to make payment (please understand the situation).
  • Inform us of changes as soon as possible. We understand that guest may cancel, extend, shorten or change your stay. Do inform us to avoid penalty imposed by hotel.
  • Do not double book with more than 1 agent - this will lead to confusion at hotel. Hotel may ignore double booking and guest ended up paying counter rates.
  • Book hotel using guest's passport names and check in using the same passport name. If hotel cannot locate guest's name in their computer system, you will be charged counter rates.
  • Ask for address of hotel in chinese - this will be provided in our confirmation email to you but ask for it if we miss out. This is important as most taxi drivers do not speak english.
  • Be careful of unauthorised "agents" at the airport - these poachers would solicit passengers on pretext of cheaper accommodation for same hotel - only to send guests to different hotel. Pls note prevalence of this practice during the Guangzhou Trade Fair period - you will be at their mercy - beware of poachers around airport and railway station.
  • Do not send money until you receive a call or email from us that your rooms are booked.
  • One night penalty will be charged for no show during canton fair.
 

I am going to Guangzhou to attend Canton Fair first, then to Hong Kong (or Macao) and back to mainland China again. Will single entry visa suffice?

 

No! You need to apply for a double entry visa in this case. Because, Hong Kong and Macao are Special Administrative Region. Once you go there from mainland China, you are considered to exit China already. Therefore you need another visa to go back in. You may apply for re-entry visa to the Visa Section for Aliens of the Commissioner mentioned in Item 2 or Division of Aliens and Exit-Entry Administration of Guangzhou Municipal Public Security Bureau (Add: No.155 Jie Fang Nan Road, Guangzhou.)

 

How Can I extend my VISA in Guangzhou?

If you need to stay longer while you are in Guangzhou, please submit your passport to the Foreign Affairs Department of the Guangzhou Public Security Bureau or the Foreign Affairs Department of Guangdong Public Security bureau. Allow one or two days for the extension to be processed. Do not overstay.

 

Do I need a VISA for a visit to Hong Kong?

Passport holders of certain countries or holding certain passports DO NOT need a visa during the specified visa-free period. Travelers who are not from those countries or those who want to stay longer need to apply for the appropriate visa or entry permit from the nearest Chinese Embassy. As an alternative, you may submit your visa or entry permit application to the HKSAR Immigration Department either directly by post or through a local sponsor. More detailed information can be accessed at the website of the Immigration Department of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region at the following page:  http://www.immd.gov.hk/ehtml/hkvisas_4.htm

 

Do I need a VISA to visit Macau from Guangzhou?

There are more than 50 countries and territories, whose passport holders can enter Macau without a Visa within the 'visa-free period'. For those who need visas, they can get visa approved upon arrival at the airport. For details, please visit the website of the Government of Macao Special Administrative Region at the page:  http://www.dsi.gov.mo/index_e1.html

 

 

Keep Passports & VISAs

Always keep your passport with you. If you are traveling outside a group and entering Hong Kong or applying for a visa to enter mainland China, you will need a passport that will not expire in the next 6 months.

All foreigners entering mainland China require visas. If you are traveling to mainland China, whether for business or tourism, you require a Chinese visa.

About Canton Fair

Introduction of Canton Fair

 

China Import and Export Fair, also known as the “Canton Fair”, is established in 1957. Co-hosted by the Ministry of Commerce of PRC and the People’s Government of Guangdong Province and organized by China Foreign Trade Centre, it is held every spring and autumn in Guangzhou, 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 broadest distribution of buyers’ source country and the greatest business turnover in China.

 

After 60 years’ reform and innovative development, the Canton Fair has withstood various challenges and never been interrupted. The Canton Fair enhances trade connection between China and the world, demonstrating China’s image and achievements of development. It is the best platform for Chinese enterprises to explore the international market and an exemplary base to implement China’s strategies for foreign trade growth. The Canton Fair serves as the first and foremost platform to promote China’s foreign trade, and a barometer of the foreign trade sector. It is the window, epitome and symbol of China’s opening up.
