Asia’s Flagship Toy Fair combined with Certified Supplier Initiative to realize Online & Offline Sourcing
Held annually since 2002, the 20th China International Toy Expo (CTE) will take place during October 19th-21st at Shanghai New International Expo Center. As Asia’s No.1 B2B trade fair for toys & baby products, CTE will bring together the latest innovative products, top-rated manufacturers from main domestic production hubs, world-renowned brands, industry development trends and business professionals of all functions throughout the value chain. It is a one-stop sourcing platform for international buyers as well as an efficient gateway for international brands to tap into the enormous Chinese market.
Organized by China Toy and Juvenile Products Association (CTJPA), CTE 2021 will cover an exhibition space of 220,000sqm hosting 2500+ exhibitors with 5500+ brands showcasing the most comprehensive categories of products. Concurrently, China Kids Fair, China Preschool Expo and China Licensing Expo will be held to feature baby products, preschool supplies and licensing opportunities respectively.
In view of the ongoing pandemic situation, international travel restrictions and quarantine measures are still in place, which precludes overseas buyers to attend offline trade fairs. Under such circumstances, the Certified Supplier Initiative was launched last year by CTJPA to bridge the gap between international buyers and quality Chinese manufacturers.
As the only nation-wide industry association with over 5000 members, CTJPA evaluates export-oriented Chinese toy and baby products manufacturers based on five criteria including product safety, safety assurance management system, specified standards, export qualifications and social responsibility to hand-pick a great selection of certified suppliers. With Certified Supplier Initiative (CSI), international buyers can find reliable Chinese toy and juvenile products manufacturers accurately and efficiently.
By now, Certified Supplier Online Platform has brought together over 1500 qualified manufacturers specializing in various categories of toys, baby products and preschool supplies. Most of these certified suppliers will also be present at CTE physical fairground, showcasing their latest products and innovations to international buyers via livestreaming, and thus enabling both online & offline business matching.
For international buyers who cannot make it to the onsite tradeshow, you may create a buyer account on CSI Online Platform and carry out no cost sourcing anywhere, anytime. As a registered buyer, you will be able to have free access to valid testing reports and certifications held by Certified Suppliers; Search for trending products by keywords or categories; Post sourcing requests to get multiple quotations swiftly; Get notifications on products you're interested in.
