Many of IBMH customers use the Canton fair as an excuse to be able to come to China to visit us. And for us the Canton fair is not more than a major exhibition of products and hardware where our customers will be able to see the breadth of product ranges that could be bought in China, being the fair a major exhibition.


However, finding a suitable supplier in this fair is very complicated, since in the fair 80% of the trading companies really do not make anything. On the other hand, 15% are so-called manufacturers that really are only mere assemblers of parts, which buy parts in different factories and their function simply lies in piecing all together as if it were a puzzle. Only 5% of the exhibitors are real manufacturers.

IBMH, as your Buying agent in China, help you to find them. So you can always work directly with the appropriate manufacturer and without intermediaries.


If of really want to start to do business with Talent in CHINA, takes advantage of your trip to China and come to see us to our offices of Guangzhou. We will be happy to personally assist you and help you in all that is in our hands.
