Last year's business turnover for Spring Session 2010 was USD 34.3 million, an increase of more than 30 per cent upon the figure for 2009. Due to this all the hotels near Pazhou Complex sell out well in advance.
Mr. Wilfred Fan, Managing Director of North Asia at Agoda.com, commented, “China has the second-largest economy in the world and Canton Fair is China's largest export and trade fair, making it an extremely important event for many businesses and entrepreneurs. As a result, Guangzhou experiences a surge in visitors for every session of the Fair. To address the demand, Agoda has shortlisted the most convenient hotels for delegates and secured special rates and promotions in these hotels. The lowest rates are available for those who book the earliest.”
The 109th edition of the event will provide an excellent platform for developing new business contacts as well as to stimulate networking among various foreign trade corporations.
