The Canton Fair & The Mobile World Congress – along with at more than two dozen large trade fairs and industrial conferences in China and overseas have been cancelled or postponed due to travel curbs and concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus. These cancellations will limit and restrict the communication, connection, and collaboration that we as International Buyers so desperately need with our current and potential suppliers.
As Buyers we attend trade fairs and industry shows to connect with our current suppliers, stay informed on market trends, meet new suppliers, learn about industry & technology innovations, and to network with our peers. These meetings foster relationships, provide knowledge opportunities, and allow us to plan and prepare for our upcoming seasons and business requirements.
Since the fairs and shows, which we rely so heavily rely on, have been cancelled – we must double our efforts and discover alternative practices to maintain & foster the communications, networking, and learnings… our livelihood and our businesses depend on these vital international contacts.
I encourage you to stay even more closely aligned with your international trading partners. Use communication networking tools like Skype, WeChat, WhatsApp, Viber, and so many others. Keep abreast of industry trends and developments by joining professional LinkedIn trade groups. And I encourage you to work with a sourcing agent at Victure Industrial – we are well connected with a wide range of reliable suppliers, industry networking groups, and trading partners. Don’t let the travel curbs deter your business – let the Victure team assist and support you with effective supplier communications, supplier monitoring, and face to face negotiations and coordination. We are here to bridge the gap created by the cancellations and to assist you in every way possible.
