This might be my 10 or 12 years of coming (here). I visit the show twice a year in April and October. We come to meet our suppliers and look for new products and design. We can finish most of our work in three or four days. I use your website almost daily. It’s very friendly and whatever information we need, we get there. We are able to get a lot of new suppliers so we communicate with them. I visited the Analyst’s Choice Zone and I picked up some good products... I’ve also visited a few suppliers in the Brand Zone. The quality of the products is better at the Analyst’s Choice and Brand Zones—you can see good manufacturers (with) nice quality products.
Our production partners (are here) and it is very important that (we) visit this place to speak to them directly in Hong Kong. I’ve been here in the last five years, always at the spring and the fall shows. The Launchpad program is very important (for us) to see the new products and we will visit other pavilions as well. Compared with HKTDC’s shows, I can find more innovative products here. I’ve placed orders and I’m happy to (return to) the show next year.
I just wanted to say that I love GlobalSources.com. You guys have seriously created an incredible tool and really appreciate your marketing for it. I feel that GlobalSources.com is the most important tool for my export business. It helps in getting new inquiries and the quality of lead and conversion rate is really very high. You've definitely made a new super fan out of me.
Global Sources is one of the best B2B portal in the world. We are using Global Sources services like trade shows and online. Currently we are very happy with Global Sources online response in term of genuine buyers inquires. Recently we have upgraded our marketing package to 2 Star and hoping to upgrade it further to 3 star. I highly recommended Global Sources online to Indian suppliers to find genuine and quality buyers.
