About the 106th Canton Fair 2009


Showcase your product at the Worlds Largest Trade Fair!

The World’s biggest and best known Import and Export Fair gives New Zealand Exporters a gilt-edged opportunity to showcase their products not only to Chinese importers but also to about 200,000 overseas buyers who traditionally visit the Fair to buy Chinese and now international products.


NZCTA has once again been appointed the official New Zealand agents for the 106th Canton Fair. In partnership with EMA Northern Inc, Export New Zealand and the Hong Kong Business Association with support from Cathay Pacific, we are planning a two part trade mission for exporters and importers interested in exhibiting or attending the 106th Fair in October 2009.

The Trade Mission

Part One

A delegation of New Zealand exporters who wish to exhibit in the International pavilion of the Canton Fair (October 15-19th).

Exhibitors will be grouped under a New Zealand branded stand and delegates will have the opportunity to build both Chinese and international sales and sales channels. Delegates have the option to take part in as much of the second part of the mission as time allows.

Part Two

A group to take in the Canton Export and Import Fair in Guangzhou, excursions to industrial sites in the Pearl River Delta, economic and business briefings and a visit to the Electronics Fair and/or eAsia in Hong Kong.
