China Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair, is held biannually in Guangzhou every April and October. The fair has a history of 60 years since 1957. It is possibly the largest trade fair globally with exhibition space totalling 1,180,000 M2, 60,000 standard booths and 24,000 exhibitors. This is certainly one trade show not to be missed.
The centre of manufacturing in China, Guangzhou is the capital city of Guangdong Province which is home to over 100 million people and is known as the ‘Worlds factory’. Guangzhou is a mega city and it will amaze and confuse you, it will also lure you and show you opportunities you never thought possible.
I first met Michael at an AustCham event in Shekou, Shenzhen in Jan 2014. Michael was friendly and proactive in a networking environment and demonstrated great people skills. He later travelled to Guangzhou to meet me to discuss legal services on behalf of his client and former employer. As a result I found a new client and I continue to meet new business contacts through Michael’s network. Michael is professional, transparent and honest when interacting with his clients and contacts. I found him to be diligent and proactive when working on projects with him which is a valuable skill when working in a demanding market such as China. I highly recommend Michael and MBH Consulting to those seeking advice and specialist services in the Chinese import and export sector. Rafer Young
I first met Michael in Shenzhen in China where he was the Chinese General Manager of an Australian Company who manufactured quality ceramics for Australian and American markets. As a potential buyer of products from China I found Michael extremely helpful in helping me to identify potential business opportunities, extremely knowledgeable in the Chinese way of conducting business, a very good negotiator, a reasonably grasp of the local Chinese language and most importantly very honest and reliable. I have no problem using Michael at every opportunity with my business and I thoroughly recommend him to any potential client. Bruce Stewart
Michael is an excellent Project Manager who demonstrates exceptional planning and budgeting skills. Combine these skills with his excellent communication qualities and technical expertise in relation to business systems and I would not hesitate to recommend him. Aaron Stewart
