Trade Shows are a great way to meet a large number of supplier in person in Vietnam. Not only will you get to see and try out many of their products in persons, you can meet a representative and start to build a contact. At Cosmo we often budget some time after a trade show to actually go and meet with the most promising factories and supplier in person, and learn more about their production capabilities. This is a good list of the Trade Shows that are worth attending in Vietnam. We’re going to be at several of these, so if feel free to email us at info@cosmsourcing.com if you want to meet up!
