Go Smart Go Agoda, an online hotel reservations service which specializes in securing the lowest discount hotel prices in Asia and around the world, is reminding business travelers to prepare early, if they plan to attend the autumn “Canton Fair”. This year’s version will be the 104th session of China’s largest Import & Export Fair and is set to be housed in the Pazhou Complex in southeast Guangzhou.

The Canton Fair has become the most comprehensive trade event in China since its inception in 1957 and the recent move to the larger Pazhou Complex should help with its ever-increasing expansion. Held twice per year in Guanzhou, China’s “Flower City”, the fair has the largest scale, the widest variety of exhibits (nearly 20,000) and the most business turnover from nearly 200,000 buyers. Instead of the traditional two phases, this year’s edition will be broken into three. Industries are scheduled to present in their respective phases, with each phase running for 5 days from October 15th to November 6th.

Mr. Wang Junwen, Vice President of the Canton Fair and Deputy Director General of the China Foreign Trade Center remarked, “The Canton Fair is continually expanding and adapting itself to the specialized trend of the international exhibition industry. By searching out larger, better venues and modifying the current format we are more suited to meet the demand of domestic and overseas exhibiting enterprises. Through these changes, the Canton Fair can achieve a considerable expansion in scale, a higher level of specialization, and more opportunities for buyers and exhibitors alike.”

Mr. Wilfred Fan, Vice President of Business Development of Agoda -commented, “The Canton Fair provides an outstanding platform to facilitate effective networking and to source –the best that is on offer from China. With over 40,000 booths, visitors who prepare for the trip beforehand will get the most value out of their visit.
