Fair profileThe event is a separate platform presenting Asian products from the house and garden sector. The aim is to link product ranges from Asian growth markets with the growing demand in Europe and North America, all in a concentrated format in Cologne. This trade fair is scheduled to be held every two years, serving as a multi-lateral hub for the import and export business. Asia-Pacific Sourcing is the ordering and communication platform for products, innovations and trends for the house and garden segment.

Its parallelism to the IAW – International Trade Fair for Retail Promotions and Import will bring a prosperous benefit for visitors and exhibitors.
