Buyer Card is the only official admission to the Fair and is available at China Import and Export Fair Complex. However, to save your time and make the registration easier, we now set 31 Overseas Buyers’ Registration Office at appointed hotels. And we strongly suggest you get the Canton Fair entry badge in these 31 hotels, considering the registration peak hour that occurs at 9:30 am 12:00 am at China Import and Export Fair Complex. Definitely, it is the best way for you also, for the buyers who stay near these areas, please register in hotels too.

The Buyer card(badge) is the only official admission to Canton Fair. It is valid for years of multiple sessions of the fair.
