The 127th session of the China Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair, will be held online from June 15 to 24 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“After more than six decades of unremitting efforts, the Canton Fair has become China’s largest comprehensive international trade fair with the longest history, most commodities and customers and the best trading results,” said Ren Hongbin, Assistant Minister of Commerce. “The 127th Canton Fair is proposed to take place online in lieu of a physical exhibition. This is both a pragmatic response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a major initiative for innovative development.”

How will it work?
“The first virtual Canton Fair will create an online international trade platform of quality and specialty products that covers 16 major export categories, such as home appliances, consumer goods, textiles, medical and health care. Powered by advanced information technology, the Canton Fair will provide around-the-clock online services for product promotion, matchmaking and business negotiations, enabling both Chinese and international businesses to place orders remotely.
In addition, the Canton Fair will set up a cross-border e-commerce zone to explore new possibilities for efficient international trade and promote a batch of cross-border e-commerce brand enterprises. The fair will also provide live stream services for exhibitors to promote their products to buyers via custom live channels. The live stream will run 24/7 and will allow either face-to-face negotiation or mass marketing promotion to audiences.”
