A "journey of surprises" that buyers go after
In recent years, "Made in Southeast Asian Regions" has posed challenges to "Made in China" for their lower costs, but visiting JINHAN FAIR gradually becomes a "journey of surprises" for the buyers. A huge number of products for selection, reasonable purchasing prices, improved quality and own brand innovations become the core competitiveness of each session of JINHAN FAIR that appeals to the 50,000 visitors from 160 foreign countries and regions.
Emukai Takashi, a major buyer from Japan and a 17-time visitor to JINHAN FAIR, mainly buys oil paintings. Its general manager Mr. Takashi Hatae says that the most impressive thing of JINHAN FAIR over the past years is the "New Ideas", as he has been inspired by so many fresh ideas from every enterprise. Meanwhile, he deems the market this year "stable as a whole, but the import business will be more difficult as the Chinese yuan depreciates."
The Italian buyer Bolzonella is mainly specialized in home decorative products and has visited JINHAN FAIR for 23 times. Its CEO Mr. Pietro Bolzonella considers "JINHAN FAIR as the No.1 Chinese fair in his mind and unforgettable with his successful purchasing experiences over more than a decade."
