Participant comments

The show offered us a good opportunity to meet our target customers and business partners, who also see rising demand in the market.

I’ve already identified many good stationery products, and some DIY items which are both practical and entertaining.

Here, I was able to find quality brands both from China and overseas, as well as high quality Chinese OEMs, which help us quickly and efficiently get an understanding of the overall stationery market. Paperworld China has given us a lot of inspiration, particularly in terms of future collaborations.
