As an exporter based in the Pacific Islands region, if you are exploring entering the China market, trade fairs and expos offer a great starting point to meet buyers and to research the China market for potential opportunities.
As in previous years, this year too Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) China has published a calendar of the upcoming Chinese Expo season.
“Our expert local advisers are at the potential exporters’ disposal to assist with their plans to explore opportunities in China, to provide marketing advice and to match them with prospective buyers and distributors,” says Vivienne Song, PTI China’s Export Manager.
Participating and visiting expos can be a good way to conduct some buyer and consumer research, measure up the competition, begin marketing and make valuable business contacts, she adds.
In 2017, PTI China assisted natural skincare exporters from Fiji and Papua New Guinea to exhibit at Asia’s leading beauty expo, Cosmoprof Hong Kong, where participants made valuable connections with new buyers.
Pauline Cleaver, International Marketing Manager of Niugini Organics said, “This has been our most successful beauty trade show ever. We learned so much, with the support from PTI China including advice, assistance with samples, as well as encouragement.”
Ms Song encourages Pacific companies to take advantage of PTI’s services saying, “China is a big market with a lot of competition, so it makes sense to use the local expertise of the Pacific Trade Invest team in China, which is there to support the private sector of all Pacific Island Countries, working closely with Pacific Island embassies in Beijing.”
