Guided Tours with local experts on the Yiwu product marketplace to keep you on the fast track.
* Workshop for handling your Yiwu, China order flow.

What Is Yiwu, you ask?
Yiwu is a place I first learned about in 2008 when I was deep into China sourcing. It was almost a “secret” place then as many sourcing companies didn’t want me to share news about it on my blog or to my clients. Well, ten plus years later and the secret is out – Yiwu is a massive market city in Zhejiang Province. You may not be familiar with the province “Zhejiang” so normally I get people to recognize it by the keyword FOB Ningbo. So many of your product sourcing quotations have FOB Ningbo – this is a major port for the Zhejiang province factories so you most likely have seen this keyword.
A massive city that is a full time market!
In the center of the factory capital of the world
Where new and innovative products are destined to come from in the future
Meet other Amazon sellers and product sourcing experts who can bounce ideas off of you in real time.
Get inspired and educated on strategies of sourcing from China, product development, logistics, and more.
Yiwu is a massive market! It will take you days, even weeks, just to get through all the various nooks and crannies of the market town. Our network of guides will help you strategize your product sourcing trip and make sure you go to the right areas for your product interest and niche.

“Firstly, awesome day and really glad I made the trip for it. You put a lot of effort into it and clearly worked your butt off to make it a success. Great job and thank you for your efforts. On the speaker front I think for FloShip, the founder Eric knew the business best and could answer everyone’s questions. Lunch was excellent and a great choice because it was very social and people could choose their own food. The speakers at JD were excellent especially Felix and Kim From Park Lu. They knew their subjects and engaged really well with us. The networking opportunity I found very valuable and hope to keep in touch with several of the participants. Anyway, thanks again for an awesome event and to your team for their help, I got a lot out of it and would happily recommend any of your events to others.”
