Getting the Most out of the Canton Fair

This week, we welcome Austin Brawner to the show to talk about his amazing experience past April at the Canton Fair in Guangzhou, China. This fair, also called The China Import and Export Fair, happens twice a year in April and October, and is THE place to be if you are looking for goods to export. From electronics and machinery, to consumer goods and medical devices, this trade show has anything you could possibly desire (and a few things you may not have thought of) to compliment your eCommerce store.

This incredible marathon trade show lasts almost an entire month and spans over 3.7 million square feet (that’s 5.5 times the size of the Superdome). Today, Austin shares his tips on why every eCommerce owner should make this trip, and how to make it an undeniable (and affordable) success.
