Sourcing for Chinese textiles or garmets? Global Sources (NASDAQ: GSOL) has just announced it is expanding its China Sourcing Fairs in 2010, adding garments and textiles to its range of fairs. The show is scheduled to be held in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Johannesburg, South Africa in October, November, and December, respectively.

At the fairs, suppliers from Greater China will be meeting face-to-face with leading buyers in three major trading and sourcing hubs. The Hong Kong event will attract a global audience of importers. Singapore is the key trading center for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), China’s fourth-largest export market, while Johannesburg is the primary gateway for China’s fast-growing trade with Africa.

According MarketWatch.com, the fairs aim to showcase finished products ranging from ready-to-wear garments such as casual, bridal, active, beach, lounge, and underwear, to fabrics, fibers, yarns, trimming materials and accessories.

China’s textile and garment exports reached USD$15.5 billion in January 2010 alone.

Diary dates:

  • Hong Kong: Oct. 27-30, and thereafter every April and October at the AsiaWorld-Expo. (The event is to be co-located with China Sourcing Fairs: Fashion Accessories and Underwear & Swimwear.)
  • Singapore: Nov. 22-24, Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
  • South Africa: Dec. 1-3, Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg
