Miami China Sourcing Fair 2014

For the fourth year in a row the Miami Beach Convention Center hosted one of the largest international business-to-business trade shows in South Florida, as Global Sources (NASDAQ: GSOL) presented the latest edition of its Miami China Sourcing Fair, and we were honored to assist them as their local and international media and community liaison.

Strategically based in Miami to target importers, traders, distributors and other volume buyers who purchase consumer products for resale to markets throughout North and Latin America, the Miami China Sourcing Fair ran from June 19th to 21st, 2014. The event featured manufacturers of electronics, home products, fashion accessories, garments, textiles, gifts, and more. The Fair showcased over 550 exhibitors that traveled from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

This year’s trade show was officially inaugurated at a private opening reception and ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 19th at the VIP Suite at the Miami Convention Center before it opened to the public. This invitation only event gathered city officials such as Miami City Manager, Daniel Alfonso, business leaders, top executives from Global Sources, and as special guest Mr. Ma Hua, Deputy Director General of the Department of Commerce of the Guangdong Province, who represented the Chinese government, and traveled to Miami exclusively for the occasion.
