The decrease of exhibitor numbers is the result of the organizer's effort to "insure the quality of Canton Fair as a renowned brand," said Liu Jianjun, spokesman of the Cantor Fair.

The 114th edition of the China Import and Export Fair opened on October 15 in Guangzhou, with ambitions to "support good and strong companies," according to a spokesperson.The autumn session of the fair has attracted 23,975 export exhibitors, down 209 compared to the last session although they occupy larger exhibition space. In the import zone, opening in the first and the third phases of this session, 542 companies from 40 countries and regions will exhibit, 20 companies less than the last fair.The decrease of exhibitor numbers is the result of the organizer's effort to "insure the quality of Canton Fair as a renowned brand," said Liu Jianjun, spokesman of the Cantor Fair. He said the proportion of brand name companies has increased to 20 percent this time; and the organizer aimed to give more space to the brand name companies, so the newer and independently designed products have places to exhibit. "If there are not many brand name companies in a trade fair, then the quality of the fair will be affected, the attended buyers will be also affected."In the welcome banquet prior to the opening of the fair, Governor Zhu Xiaodan of Guangdong Province said the Canton Fair will award the first export product design trophy this time, which has the ambition to connect the trade fair with industrial design and to foster the upgrade and creativity of the exporters. "Guangdong Provincial Government will, as it always do, support the development of the Canton Fair."The autumn Canton Fair will close on November 4. The organizer estimated that the number of buyers will remain the same level as in the last edition. (By Lynus Tan, Rik Glauert)
