So this is the online registration for the fair, we recommend to do it now, and not to wait untill the last moment. After the Canton Fair we also advise you to check companies from the Canton Fair, unfutuantly we more and more scammers at the Canton Fair, and it’s very risky to send money to a company we haven’t checked (we verify the bank accounts too)!.
