Easing Volume-Buyers' Sourcing Experience
Private Sourcing Events, a business-matching service for high-volume buyers, were organized to help buyers meet with pre-selected qualified suppliers in a private setting to discuss sourcing requirements and make sourcing easier and more efficient. 18 high-volume buyers and over 300 suppliers participated in CBME China's Private Buyer Meetings. Buyers include Amazon (U.S.), Hesdo B. V, P & K Global Distribution, and some high-volume buyers from mainland China.
As Sarah Lee, Hong Kong Representative Office Manager of Hesdo commented, "I'm representing a Dutch trading company to attend this show to look for qualified suppliers and partners. The Private Buyer Meetings I attended were very well organized and very helpful. With the organizer's support, I selected some exhibitors who I'm interested in and have high potential to be our suppliers to meet during the show. This is really an efficient way for business-matching. I definitely will come back next year!"
CBME China is the perfect business platform for children, baby, and maternity product buyers, retailers, manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers to meet and do business in one venue.
