Greater China's creative gifts & premiums unveiled at Mumbai Fair
China Sourcing Fair: Gifts & Premiums staged its first Mumbai event at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in India on September 8 to 10, 2010. Presenting a broad assortment of the latest products in the industry, the three-day inaugural show was packed with thousands of buyers from the subcontinent and nearby markets in search of cost-efficient sourcing from China.
Major product pavilions featured inventive designs in general gifts, stationery & paper, Christmas & seasonal products, gifts, trinkets & jewelry boxes, photo frames, electronic premiums, watches & clocks, promotional bags, caps & garments, promotional & travel mugs and promotional keychains, badges & pins.
Deepti Khandelwal from gifts products importer Saffron India stressed the Fair's importance to their business. "As we plan to import from China, the Fair offers us a great platform to explore these products. We have been in the gifts industry for over 10 years, and we usually find suppliers through the Internet and trade shows. We will visit again next year," Deepti noted.
Pre-registration figures increased 76% from last year, fueled by more China Sourcing Fairs expanding to India to address the country's growing demand for China-made products. China and India's trade volume has grown over the past years. This year's volume is seen to surpass last year's US$ 42 billion, already hitting US$ 32 billion in the first half of 2010 alone.
"India's trade with China is booming. Buyers in India are looking for well-made, cost-effective products, and they are buying more from China suppliers," said Global Sources Exhibitions President Tommy Wong. "To meet this growing demand, we've expanded our range of exhibits. Besides the Electronics & Components, Hardware & Building Materials and Auto Parts & Accessories Fairs, we also launched the Security Products, Home Products, Gifts & Premiums and Bathroom Products Fairs this year," he added.
Officiating the opening ceremony were Builder's Association of India President Shri Bhagwan J. Deokar, India-China Chamber of Commerce & Industry Vice- President Kamal Dujodwala, Consul General Niu Qingbao of China's Consulate General in Mumbai and Global Sources Deputy CEO Spenser Au.
