The Canton Fair is held at the Canton Fair Complex in Guangzhou. A massive event organized very well to facilitate business transactions and provide visitors with a huge variety of suppliers and manufacturers with whom they can interact.
The fair complex itself is very big and has three sections A, B & C. Each section has multiple floors, and on each floor there are several hundred exhibition booths with manufacturers and traders showing their latest designs and merchandise.
The Canton fair is in 3 Phases spread over 3 weeks. The busiest day for any of the phases is normally Day 1 and Day 2. By the last day, most exhibitors are busy preparing to pack up and go home, so it’s best to plan to be there only till 2:00 pm.
If you are planning to visit to the Canton Fair it is good to combine it with visits to factories or suppliers in the areas surrounding Guangzhou. Also one can plan to visit other wholesale markets in China like the whole sale market in YIWU – a sprawling center that can take several days to cover.
Language challenges do exist and you can consider getting an interpreter for your visit to the Canton Fair. Also, if you have any Android phone, you can download the Google translation app and can use this offline without having a data connection or VPN. Though the language spoken in Canton province is Cantonese and/or Mandarin, most exhibitors should be able to understand the output of the translation application. And many exhibitors have English speaking staff and facilitators who can converse with you.
You can also use the Microsoft Translator App . This also has an interesting feature whereby you can speak into the phone and it will translate and give you the Chinese version. Or you can ask the other person to speak into it in Chinese language and you can translate it to English.
