What is the Global Sources Summit

Global Sources Summit is a 3-day conference held in Hong Kong for Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), Private Label sellers and online retailers sourcing from China.

In addition the summit is co-located with Global Sources Lifestyle and Fashion sourcing trade shows so that you can meet with thousands of suppliers, to find great products to private label.

Global Sources does a much better job vetting and inviting companies, so while there are few suppliers they are much better quality. Go to Canton Fair for the Quantity, and Global Sources for the Quality.

When and Where is the Global Sources Summit?

The 7th edition of Global Sources Summit is

27 - 29 April 2019

AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong


These dates line up between the 2nd and 3rd phase of the Spring Canton Fair. It’s planned so that you can attend both Global Sources Summit and The Canton Fair without missing any of the other. Global Sources is held in Hong Kong and they chose a great spot to host-- AsiaWorld-Expo, located in Chap Lap Kok, which is the same massive man-made island that the Hong Kong International Airport is located on. For visitors like myself who will be coming from the Mainland this is also near the brand-new boundary crossing facility, so you can quickly enter from China and head straight to the Summit.  

Why Should you go?

There are a few great reasons, mainly the seminars from leading experts, the networking, and access to fantastic fairs.

Seminars from the leading Amazon and eCom Experts

Many of the top selling eCommerce and Amazon sellers will share their knowledge on how to grow a successful Amazon business. Speakers include 7-figure sellers, experts on PPC campaigns, legal experts and many more. Some of the speakers include: Kevin King, Will Mitchell, Andy Slamans, Liran Hirschkorn, John Lawson, Sean Smith, Chris Rawlings, CJ Rosenbaum, Ashlin Hadden, and more. Check out the list of speakers Here.

Network with other sellers

One of the main focus of the event is the networking opportunities from other like-minded FBA and eCom sellers. The event will feature both a “networking room” dedicated for meeting new people as well as an after party on April 28.

Be the first to find product that haven't even entered the market

The single biggest reason to visit the summit is that it coincides with two other great trade shows. The Global Sources Lifestyle show and the Global Sources Fashion show.

The Lifestyle show covers premium gifts, toys, smart gadgets, Home goods and decorations, office suppliers and much more!

The Fashion Fair will have exhibits in fashion accessories, Fabrics and apparel and much more.

At Global Sources exhibitions, the focus is on curating and highlighting new, cool and innovative products that have higher profit potential.
