The 129th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair) will once again be held online from April 15-24, 2021. A run-through of 10 days virtual exhibition will continue leveraging its leading digital platform to create new opportunities for global companies, support smooth operation of the supply chains and empower trade partnerships. 

The 129th Canton Fair will correspond with the previous exhibition in terms of exhibition zones and product categories – 50 exhibition zones covering 16 major product categories will be set up online, with six main themes in the import sector of the exhibition.

All exhibition zones will go live simultaneously on opening day, covering product exhibition, supply and procurement matching, cross-border e-commerce and more, as the Canton Fair continues to offer premium cloud services including information display, real-time communication, negotiation appointment, and livestreaming marketing.

To consolidate and expand on the achievements of national poverty alleviation, the 129th Canton Fair will establish a special zone called Village Revitalization to help those regions that just eradicated poverty to open up the international market.

The organizer of Canton Fair China’s Ministry of Commerce said, “with the experience of hosting two virtual exhibitions in 2020, the 129th Canton Fair will further optimize the functions of the platform to improve convenience and service and facilitate successful trading between the exhibitors and buyers. To help companies lower their operational costs, the fair will continue to waive exhibition fees and any charges on the cross-border e-commerce platforms that participate in the event simultaneously. We hope everyone can join us online to seek new opportunities and mutual development.”

Approximately 25,000 exhibitors can upload company and product information in the form of pictures, videos, 3D, VR and more. Canton Fair will ensure the privacy of B2B trading and allow both buyers and sellers to communicate and complete orders via a third-party tool of their choosing. Canton Fair’s exchange platform will also provide links of video conferencing and social networking to make communication easier. The organizer added.

Last year’s 128th session welcomed buyers from a record-breaking 226 countries and regions, with over 7.89 million visits to companies’ virtual exhibition hall.
