No other Amazon or eCommerce conference in the world boasts a proximity to 10 exhibition halls of suppliers! With just two escalator rides from over 3,800 booths at Global Sources Gifts & Home and Global Sources Mobile Electronics, you will surely find a product of interest to your business.
"Having the personal relationship, the face-to-face to discuss what I'm after or not after; this is what I'd like or wouldn't like to pay; the ability to negotiate and build some rapport with the [suppliers] themselves - it's huge!"
Jordan Anderson, Global Sources Summit October 2017 attendee
With a good mix of sourcing and selling related topics lined up in the agenda, Global Sources Summit attendees literally acquire knowledge on every stage of the private labelling process, from procurement, production and all the way to promotion. Some of these presentations contain information that you can even implement at the conference venue with a laptop!
"Amazon sellers who are here presenting [are also] staying for the whole conference because they're learning from other presenters! Now that to me tells me that you're at an awesome conference!"
Julie Stackpole, Global Sources Summit October 2017 Attendee
For the first time ever, Global Sources Summit is opening 3 workshops* on top of the regular agenda for attendees who wish to maximize their trip to Hong Kong. These workshops are conducted by familiar speakers at the Summit and are designed to be practical and interactive. For beginners, their 2-day workshop will also incorporate a 'field trip' to the trade shows to apply what they have learnt.
Conducted by Amazon PPC guru Sean Smith and AMS expert Taylor Benterud, this is the most actionable and practical workshop for seasoned sellers looking to optimize their promotional expenditure on Amazon -- you can almost easily implement these strategies on the spot!
Conducted by AMZKungfu founder Zack Franklin, learn how you can market your products on the world's largest social media platform through the various offerings on Facebook advertising.
Let someone who has been there, done that at Global Sources Summit show you how to build your eCommerce brick by brick! Focusing on product sourcing, including a 'field trip' to the trade shows and the foundations of selling online, let KJ Robinson, founder and CEO of JAKAB Solutions teach you private labelling just as he had learnt the same at previous Summits!
Our well-received Mastermind for Advanced Sellers is back! More than a formal networking or an ordinary Q&A, this is an intensive session for you to present your hard-hitting business questions before eCommerce high-rollers, marketing experts and sourcing gurus. Participants are split into roundtables and attended to by one team of experts, who will provide on-the-spot mentorship to you. After a certain time, the other teams of experts will sit in and dish their own advice. This format is designed for you to get multiple, unique perspectives whilst learning from other like-minded, advanced sellers.
"It was almost an overload! We had problems sleeping because we were too excited about everything we learned!"
Henrik Fjerdingen, Global Sources Summit October 2017 attendee
You'll be surprised at how connected and supportive Amazon and other eCommerce retailers can be, even if they come from different parts of the world! Some of our attendees even fly to Hong Kong together to attend the Summit and source at the trade shows. With four major blocks of networking opportunities spread across three days, including an evening networking gala, you too may be able to join one of these networking groups or just forge connections for a lifetime!
"The networking's amazing! We're all going to dinner every night together too! We're networking outside. It's not just about in the classroom; it's what you learn outside!"

"Just a lot of experts here that I haven't seen at many other shows, and I think part of that is because the show's taking place in Hong Kong, and a lot of expats who have developed their careers in Asia live [here]"
