Reasons to attend transport logistic China 2024
Trade fairs are an incredible opportunity to verify both the exhibitors and their products, which is extremely important, considering that seeing products in person gives us a much better understanding of their actual quality. In addition, attending trade fairs is the best way to make new connections with many exhibitors and compare their prices. Trade fairs are also a great opportunity to negotiate, estimate the costs of future orders, and, more importantly, make successful deals on-site. Such a wide variety of products presented at trade fairs may also be an inspiration for future projects.
How to prepare for a trade fair visit?
Business culture is well-respected in China, so there are a few important things to know before visiting a trade fair. Preparing business cards in advance is essential to building business relationships. Business cards should be in two languages, written in English on one side and Chinese on the other. There are also specific rules for exchanging business cards. First of all, when exchanging them, one should always use both hands. It is strongly recommended to read their contents before putting them away, either in a wallet or a special card holder. Under no circumstances should you put them away in your pants pocket or fold them, as it would be considered extremely inappropriate.
To maintain good relationships with Chinese contractors, it is recommended to download the WeChat app on your mobile phone. WeChat is China’s most popular social media platform; hence, it has almost replaced email communication for business correspondence in China. Keep in mind that downloading WeChat will enable your correspondence with Chinese contractors to be more effective.
It is also recommended to check the full list of exhibitors and products beforehand, as trade fairs are usually big events divided into areas. Therefore, to avoid wasting time, you should always plan your visit according to the map of the event.
