Mega Macao

Trying to steal a little of Global Sources' thunder (today was the opening of the gifts portion of the China Sourcing Fair), Kenfair has announced with some fanfare the launch of its October 2007 "Mega Macao" event. By our reckoning, this is likely to be the first major event at the new Venetian Macao (pictured here in a July web cam shot) and is a clear effort by Kenfair to capitalise on the Hong Kong/Guangzhou spring and autumn flood of buyers attending existing, major fairs. We think it may be a slightly risky-er venture than Global Source's launches at AsiaWorld-Expo but the potential for these sourcing fairs to grow in the Pearl River Delta appears almost unstoppable.
