Comprised of four different product areas for electronics, gifts & premiums, hardware & building materials and garments & textiles, the China Sourcing Fair offers a unique opportunity for suppliers from Greater China to meet face-to-face with buyers from Latin and South America.

Trade between China and Brazil soared to $83.3 billion last year, up from $3.2 billion in 2002, making China the largest trade partner for Brazil. Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions, feels that China Sourcing Fair has an important role to play in this powerful trade dynamic. He said: "This is the third year for our show in Sao Paulo, we have been able to understand greatly the types of products that are appropriate for the Brazilian and South American markets. Our suppliers, nearly 60 percent of whom are seeking local representation in Brazil, are exhibiting new products that the market demands."

The China Sourcing Fair event is designed to provide greater sourcing and business opportunities for local importers, retailers and distributors, as many of these products are not currently manufactured in Brazil. Wong points out that China Sourcing Fair offers domestic companies with the opportunity for exclusive distribution rights for products not currently available in Brazil.

Officially opening the shows today were:

  • Yu Yong, Commercial Counselor, Consulate General of the People's Republic of China in Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • Cai Fang Ming, Investigator Researcher, Department of Commerce of Jiangsu Province, the People's Republic of China
  • Cui Xiang Yong, Vice Director of Exhibition Department, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Hebei Sub-council
  • Luigi Nesse, President, National Confederation of Fair Services, Brazil
  • Jooji Hato, Congressman, Sao Paulo State, Brazil
  • Pedro D'Alessio, Director, Sao Paulo Events and Tourism Company, Brazil
  • Atul Kumar Gupta, Chairman, The Indian Silk Export Promotion Council
  • George Hato, City Councilor, Municipal Government of Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • Peter Jung, Executive Director, Milton Exhibits Group Limited
  • Tommy Wong, President, Global Sources Exhibitions

China Sourcing Fair is well supported by a number of mainland China provincial and municipal organizations and other associations, which include:

  • Department of Commerce of Jiangxi Province
  • Department of Commerce of Hunan Province
  • China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Tianjin Sub-council
  • China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Hebei Sub-council
  • Nanchang Municipal Foreign Trade & Economic Cooperation Committee

  • The Indian Silk Export Promotion Council
  • Sao Paulo Chamber of Commerce
  • The Brazil-China Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIBC)
  • The Brazilian Council for Import and Export Companies (CECIEx)

The event in Sao Paulo features a number of on-site value-added services for buyers, including:

  • A Product Showcase displaying hundreds of innovative items from suppliers who could not attend the show in-person. This showcase effectively multiplies sourcing options for attending buyers.
  • An "Olympics Showcase" promoting products that may be appropriate for the up-coming 2016 Olympics. This new and unique service allows buyers to stay one step ahead and to start sourcing for this global sports event before it comes to Brazil.  
  • A Buyers' Lounge with free Internet access and free Global Sources Show Guide Magazines.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
