About Global Sources

Established for 48 years, Global Sources has built a trustworthy B2B platform that serves buyers and suppliers online and offline. The core business facilitates trade between Asia and the world through trade shows (GlobalSources.com/exhibitions), online marketplaces (GlobalSources.com), magazines, and apps.

The company organizes export sourcing shows in Hong Kong every April and October with eight events annually, including the world's largest electronics and mobile electronics shows as well as Lifestyle and Fashion shows.

More than 1.5 million international buyers, including 94 of the world's top 100 retailers, use these services to obtain product and company information to help them source more profitably from overseas supply markets. These services also provide suppliers with integrated marketing solutions to build corporate image, generate sales leads and win orders from buyers in more than 240 countries and territories.

Global Sources is also a majority shareholder in Shenzhen International Machinery Manufacturing Industry Exhibition (SIMM) and its related shows-the leading machinery exhibitions in Southern China.

Intellectual Property Compliance Policy

As a professional manager of an international trade show, we observe, and would expect our exhibitors to observe, high standards of legal compliance. This means we are committed to ensuring that the lawful rights of intellectual property owners are respected and that complaints of intellectual property violations are investigated and appropriately dealt with in a timely manner. At the same time, we would need to ensure that the interests and activities of our exhibitors are not unduly interfered with by unfounded infringement complaints.

Accordingly, we have established an Intellectual Property Compliance Policy, containing detailed procedures and requirements for the fair, prompt and expeditious handling of intellectual property infringement complaints against our exhibitors.

If you have any infringement complaints against our exhibitors, you may contact our on-site legal team at the Fair Management Office within the venue. However, you are advised to read our Intellectual Property Compliance Policy carefully to ascertain what types of evidence and documents will be required, as we may refuse to process your complaint unless you have the necessary evidence and documents with you.
