The event vividly displayed the innovative prowess of Chinese manufacturing, Chinese creativity, Chinese brands, and Chinese technology to a global audience of buyers.

Empowering exhibitors to showcase their "new selections"

This Canton Fair Selections Launch revolved around seven major themes: electronic home appliances, building materials and home decoration, industrial manufacturing, hardware tools, home goods consumption, fashion and lifestyle, as well as health and leisure. With a focus on the latest trends in international trade and consumer demands, the event presented a wealth of innovative ideas.
