If you are going to import furniture from China, it’s worth taking the first steps to Foshan, one of the largest furniture production area. Direct contact with representatives of factories is usually more fruitful than communication with a given company through an intermediary or trading companies. Everyone familiar with Chinese business etiquette knows how important face-to-face meetings with a potential business partner are. When visiting Foshan furniture market, you can also firsthand see the quality of the products and the factory. It is worth choosing wisely the date of the visit so that it does not interfere with the most important Chinese holidays. The trip can be combined with participation in trade fairs, for example in the nearby Guangzhou, home of the Canton Fair.
