Q: Dear GlobeTrade Team,

We manufacture high-quality step ladders and are trying to figure out the best way to source complementary products in China to offer a family of hardware tools for our customers. Any suggestions?

A: You bet and we just caught this information in the November edition of IOMA’s report on “Managing Exports & Imports.” Here’s the clip:

China Sourcing Fairs provide exporters and importers a one-stop venue. The China Sourcing Fairs (, organized by Global Sources, bring together volume buyers with international-standard manufacturers from all over China to Shanghai. Buyers can benchmark and source from new, competitive China suppliers more effectively. Buyers can register for the shows, reserve a hotel room in Shanghai, and arrange a China visa at the site.

We have not used this resource but did scan the site and found it to be fairly comprehensive in – as it claims -- taking you to the center of China.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Laurel and the team
