The business card is really really important to visit Canto fair.

First, you need it to register and get the badge.

Second, if you need some product catalog, they will ask for a business card. In some extreme situation, you cannot even enter a booth without giving your business card to the vendor first.

Business card essential thing to do business in China. Politely, everyone will also prepare a beautiful little box to receive the business card, instead of putting it directly into the bag or pocket.

If you don't have any business card yet, I suggest you make a lot of it now before you come to Canton fair, 3 boxes (1500pcs)at least

You can make your business online very easy(search google). If you forget to bring your business card, outside the Canton fair, many people can help you make. In 1 hour you can get them.

Their latest products would be starting at the real exhibition shows, when appearing 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 manufactures attend exhibition will very costly to spend the 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 successfully.

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.
