Innovation Empowers your Price Negotiation

Mr. Liu, the chairman of the first time exhibitor, YONGLIN Glassware International Trade, Ltd, co, said, “Yonglin produces and exports glassware, the annual export amount valued at more than USD 5 million. We came to the good reputed JINHAN FAIR to enhance our efforts in exploring the European market. Today is the first day, the traffic is much better than my expectation. More so, the quality of buyers is very high, new clients take 50% of the traffic.”
Along with the restructuring of the international economic framework, the external demands have been weak; the low cost advantage is disappearing as well. Thus, China has entered a new normal in export. Product innovation and brand cultivation have become the inner drive of most companies’ development; they are also the sharpest weapon to break open low price dilemma and snatch orders. An exhibitor from Zhejing province believed that Chinese companies were already in the key period of creating their core competitiveness, “Chinese companies must go out. As long as we grasp the market trends and lead the market with our new products continuously, we will not be impacted by the externalities.”
The leading Chinese companies, such as, Minhou Minxing, Shenzhen Desily, Yiwu Wadou, Zhengzhou Home paint, etc. have all done their market categorization, product line extension; enhanced their design innovation, to look for a new breaking point in the market. Mr. Xue, the director of Shenzhen Dsily said, “The European market is greatly impacted by Fx rates this year. Our clients have been prudent. Besides keeping our research and development to maintain our old clients, we have also developed new line of products for young consumers.”
On the afternoon of 23rd and the morning of 24th, Mr. Georges Lustig, the founder of the French high-end chain retailer Du Bout Du Monde and Ms. Olga Sismanidou, the Greek senior designer will bring two lectures on “European Market and Sourcing Trend” and “Display is the Best Marketing” respectively.
