NEXT LEVEL ADD-ONS:

We’re doing some really fun add ons, all add-ons are completely optional. If you want to participate, then you can add these onto your trip. Amazing in China Canton Fair Group Trip Add-Ons

  • EXPERT SOURCING IN CHINA MASTERCLASS: That the Canton Fair has a lot of great factories, but those factories pay sometimes over $100,000 for one booth. So the factories that you’re seeing at the Canton Fair, makeup over 60,000 booths but represent a tiny sliver of what you can find in China. For this masterclass, I’m inviting some of my amazing friends that are on the ground there in China to come and do a panel and answer your questions and teach you how to source outside of Canton Fair. Because I want you to find good suppliers at Canton Fair, but I also want you to be empowered to find factories for your niche outside of Canton Fair. How do you find suppliers when it’s not Canton fair time? Whether you’re a beginner or someone who’s been to China many times, we’re going to really help you master that.
  • PLACING ORDERS & LEGAL PROTECTION MASTERCLASS: The second master class is all about placing your order. When you get there, and you find a supplier and you do a factory tour and it’s time to place you first order, what do you do? Do you know how to put your order together? Do you know how to do a spec sheet? Do you know what legal documents you should have in China? Do you know what they should look like? Do you know how they should be signed? What should you be looking for? Do you know how to do a purchase order with your supplier and have the correct information included?
  • PRIVATE COACHING SESSIONS & FACTORY TOUR ASSISTANCE:  I’m also going to be opening up my schedule so you can book me to help you during your factory visits or for one on one time at the Canton fair.
  • MORE FUN ADD-ONS TO COME! Other add-ons will include leisure travel and group excursions

WHY TRAVEL ALONE WHEN YOU CAN TRAVEL WITH US FOR THE SAME PRICE?

Frequently Asked Questions about Our Trip

What is the Canton Fair?

The Canton Fair the largest largest exposition of suppliers and manufacturers in the world and it happens twice a year in April and October in Guangzhou, China.

Why go all the way to China when I can just source on Alibaba?

If you’re creating new pillows for the home you can walk in and feel the materials of those pillows. You can look at them and touch them versus you going to an online source, trying to imagine what that looks like and getting a sample sent and all the time that takes. What’s great about going directly to Canton is you have all these suppliers in one place. There are 60,000 booths. They’re all competing with each other so they bring their most innovative stuff. They work on it for six months and that’s their Canton Fair exclusive. They try to get people into their booths with new and innovative products. They try to get these buyers into their booths. You’re going to see stuff that you’ve never seen before that your brand can bring to market. It’s an incredible opportunity to have 60,000 new suppliers to see during each phase. During the weekend, everybody clears out and goes home and then new people come in and you have a new 60,000. It’s an incredible and exciting sight to see. You walk into there and you’re like, “It’s incredible. It’s awesome.” You quickly realize this is HUGE for your business and this will be the first of many times you come back to China.

Do I need to be there for every day of the phase?

If it’s your first time attending, we recommend you plan to be there every day of each phase you’d like to attend.

When should I arrange factory visits?

There is no better opportunity than to visit a factory already making your products or one you are considering for the future. You’ll want to first find out how far the factory is from Guangzhou and whether you’ll need to fly there or you can catch a train. Next you’ll need to know if the factory will be at the Canton Fair so that you can arrange the visit before or after this time. Most people arrange factory tours immediately after the phase, toward the end of the week of the next phase when they’ve seen mostly everything they needed to see.

How do I register for Canton Fair and how much does it cost?

You can register online for free at https://www.cantonfair.org.cn/en/index.aspx this will allow you to get an invitation to the fair so that you can get a visa. Do not use google chrome. Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge browsers work much better. You’ll just need your passport and business information to register.

How do I get a business Visa to visit China?

Each country and state in the United States has different requirements for Visa registration. There are also many visa registration services to help you with this process. Simply google “business visa for china from ______” enter your country in the blank and you’ll see lots of online services to help you out. If you’ve already visited China, your visa may still be good for your next visit. Simply check the visa paper in your passport.

What is included in our Group China Trip?

We are offering an opportunity for you to travel with a group to the fair without all the extra expenses of the other big China trips. When you sign up for our group trip, your hotels and transportation is covered AND you’ll hang out in our private Facebook group so we can all coordinate travel together and learn the best secrets of sourcing before the trip.

Then, you’ll choose your travel dates and book your flight and any additional nights beyond our 21-28 April travel dates in the awesome hotel we’ve arranged for the group.

In the weeks leading up to the trip we’ll host weekly live sourcing strategy sessions to get everyone prepped for the trip. From there, you will get a list of optional paid “a la cart” options to choose from such as

  • Optional add-on group fun events like dinners, Pearl River Cruises, city tours, and more
  • Optional mentoring and consulting options such as paid one on one coaching
  • Group masterclasses (see the awesome options in the add-ons details)

You choose what you can afford and how much you want to participate in group activities. The benefit is we will all be in the same hotel, the same networking travel group on Facebook, and we will get to experience Canton Fair together!

What is NOT Included in the Group Trip?

You are responsible for the cost of your airfare ($500-2000 depending on where you are coming from) and any meals ($5-10 per meal) outside of paid group meals. You’ll also want to allot money to taxi or train transportation to visit your factories or to travel outside of paid group activities.

Do I have to purchase the add-ons to get value out of the trip?

No! You can decide how much or how little you’d like to participate. Our price includes 7 nights of hotel during phase 2 of the Canton Fair April 21-28th as well as breakfast and transportation. You’ll also participate in group strategy sessions prior to the trip, 3 paid dinners and group time at the fair. The add-ons are just for those who are wanting that extra information and with a trip this affordable you can add ALL THE ADD-ONS and still not spend as much as you would have with other programs.

Do we need to book a specific hotel?

Yes, when you sign up for our group trip we are paying for your hotel room for 7 nights! Our hotel is also providing our transportation and food. It is important to stay at the same hotel so that we can make this an awesome group trip. This is also where we will hold any extra group dinners, and masterminds. It is also beautiful to enjoy breakfast together each morning and travel to the fair together.

How can I save on Airfare and when should I book?

Please wait to book your air tickets until we are in the Facebook group together. You may decide you want to visit more than one phase, or you want to do an excursion. Tickets are usually more expensive to change then they are just to wait until you have your travel finalized. We will work together on this and share our reservations in the group so that everyone is on the same page.

You can save on airfare by visiting google flights and setting up a flight tracking notification. Here’s a great article on how to do this. https://millionmilesecrets.com/guides/google-flight-alerts/  I was able to buy a round trip ticket on American Airlines from Texas to Guangzhou for $600 round trip and then simply upgrade my seat to better class for an additional $200 on the longest leg of the flight.

How will I get from the airport to the hotel?

We realize it could be pretty overwhelming to get to China where you don’t speak the language and try to catch a taxi. So we have you covered. Your base fee for group trip will also cover a private car to take you to the hotel. When you exit the airport, someone will be there with your name on a sign, in English, ready to take you safely to our hotel.

How will I communicate in China? Will my phone work?

We will talk about all of this in the Facebook group. We’ll help you get set up on WeChat and with a VPN on your phone so that when you get to China you’ll be able to communicate with us and with others. We always have a pretty awesome group chat going the whole time so if you’re at the fair and you need assistance, or you just want to go out to dinner or for a walk in the park and you want company, you can send the group a message.

What about the food? Are there Western, Halal, and Vegetarian options available?

You will love the food in China. But this is a normal concern. The hotel we stay at has plenty of Western and Vegetarian options available and breakfast and dinner is a huge buffet so you’ll never leave hungry. You may even gain a few pounds. You’ll also find plenty of these options available at Canton Fair for lunch each day. Each hall at the Canton Fair has multiple food options with a “food court” feel and everything from Starbucks to McDonalds to Chinese, Indian, and many other cuisine options.

What is the difference between this Group Trip and other Amazon Seller China Trips?

This is not a course. This is simply a way for people in the Amazing at Home, Seller Round Table, and partner Communities to travel together to the Canton Fair in China in a safe, fun, and affordable way! Not to mention we are throwing in all of our expertise as part of the fun!!

Is there a limit to how many people can sign up?

We are only limited by the number of hotel rooms we can book. But you will need to commit to signing up with us before April so you have time to get your passport, Visa and travel arrangements in order.
