PRODUCT SOURCING IN YIWU, CHINA

Brian and Greg are coming back to the market in Spring 2020!

Date: Spring 2020 (TBD)

Join us for our Canadian Product Sourcing Trip to Yiwu, China.

Yiwu market is more than 70,000 booths in one place (it spans 6-8 blocks and 5 stories high with 1.8M different products). It is really huge and it is only closed 7 days a year!  200 countries in the world source from Yiwu.

Why sourcing from China

  • This is by far the quickest and most efficient way to source new products and

  •  Direct access to a sourcing agent who lives in Yiwu and works in the market every day.  This is much different than working with a translator (offered by most of the trips).

  • The sourcing agent has access to thousands of products that are not available at the market and can be purchased directly from the manufacturer

  • All products are there to see and check.  No more multiple samples ordering and shipping to your home.  You can compare many products just by walking to another store.  Big time saver!

  • Easy to customize your next product.  Wide selections of various packaging and extras from various manufacturers and bundled into one single package

  • A chance to visit some of the local manufacturing facilities.

  • Sourcing, product coordination, inspection, logistics in one place

Thousands of products to choose from

    • Visit your potential products right from the start of the trip.

    • Find new product manufacturers in and outside the market.

    • Negotiate the lowest prices, procure and consolidate orders.
