HONG KONG, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- All exhibitor booths at Global Sources' (NASDAQ: GSOL) China Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components, one of the largest consumer electronics exhibitions in Asia, are sold out a full three months ahead of the scheduled show opening date on Oct. 12, 2013 in Hong Kong.

Offering an efficient, one-stop sourcing experience all under one roof, the show is a must-visit event for buyers from around the world looking to source the latest consumer electronics products.

"The early sell-out of our electronics show demonstrates the effectiveness of this trade platform for both buyers and suppliers. We are looking forward to another successful show following the spring edition, which attracted more than 37,000 buyers from 144 countries and regions," said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions.

Buyer attendance at the spring 2013 edition was up by 10 percent year-on-year and included globally notable giants such as BenQ, Best Buy, Canon, Fujitsu, Intel, Intelbras, JVC KENWOOD, LG Electronics, Li & Fung, Monster Cable, Panasonic, Tesco, Toshiba and Vodafone.

The fall show will continue to offer the hottest electronics products and will feature Asia's largest mobile and wireless pavilion, Asia's largest in-car electronics and GPS pavilions, Hong Kong's largest computer peripherals and terminals, networking products pavilions and Hong Kong's largest telecom products pavilion.

"According to Global Sources' most recent China exporter survey, 81 percent of electronics suppliers are particularly upbeat on sales growth in 2013," mentioned Wong. "Whilst the US and the EU will remain major markets due to the robust demand for consumer electronics, suppliers are expecting a surge of shipments to emerging markets, thanks in part to the business opportunities and reach our shows provide."

The 10th anniversary of China Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components

This fall also marks the 10th anniversary of the China Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components.

"The last 10 years have seen the Fair go from strength to strength to become an important fixture on the calendar of many of the world's largest buyers because of our unwavering focus on facilitating efficient trade between Asia and the world," explained Wong. "The Fair has grown more than six times since 2003 and established itself as one of the largest consumer electronics shows in Asia. It is an ideal platform for dynamic and innovative Greater China suppliers to showcase their products."

As a complementary service, Show Online will provide an online platform for buyers to boost their sourcing productivity by allowing them to connect with suppliers before, during and after the physical shows. "This is a win-win benefit for both buyer and supplier alike since, not only does it become easier for buyers to find and connect with quality suppliers, it also greatly improves the visibility of suppliers' products," said Wong.
