The Global Sources Electronics show takes place twice a year at the AsiaWorld-Expo during Hong Kong’s busiest sourcing seasons – April and October. As the world’s largest electronics sourcing show exclusively for manufacturers, trading companies, exporters and industry professionals of electronic and component products, the show is an essential trade platform for meeting face-to-face with key volume buyers from both traditional and emerging markets.

About Global Sources Electronics

Global Sources Electronics is the world’s largest electronics trade fair. The upcoming edition opens on April 11, 2019 at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong and comprises two phases – Consumer Electronics & Mobile Electronics. The flagship trade fair of Global Sources, it features 7,500 booths of the hottest electronics products from China, Korea, and other Asian countries.

This October, the world’s largest electronics sourcing show gets even bigger and better, adding nearly a thousand booths and expanding to take over the entire AsiaWorld-Expo venue – Hong Kong’s biggest exhibition venue – during both show phases!

Why Should You Visit

Every April and October, our Hong Kong shows welcome volume buyers from some 200 countries who come to visit manufacturers and other suppliers from China and throughout Asia.

Executives of businesses that purchase for resale

Many of the world’s leading retailers, manufacturers and brand-owners are represented by senior management, and by sourcing and product development.

The shows are also heavily attended by a wide range of small and medium-sized importer, wholesaler and retailer businesses – including a fast growing segment of Amazon and other online sellers.

Executives with purchasing authority

Since the shows are dedicated to strategic sourcing, the majority of attendees have purchasing authority — and executive management job titles like Owner, Partner, President, Director and General Manager.

Approximately 15% of buyers place orders at the show while an additional 30% place orders within a month of attending.

Executives seeking private-label and suppliers’ brands

Much of the business conducted is “private label” where the brand is owned by the overseas buyer but produced by the contract manufacturer in Asia.

There is also a growing amount of sourcing where the buyer is purchasing the Asian suppliers design and/or brand.
