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.

American social media & e-commerce specialist being China since late 2007, I’m passionate to help companies do business in China leveraging the power of social media and e-commerce. I host a weekly podcast GlobalFromAsia.com to help businesses understand how to do business in China and other parts of Asia. I love Sina weibo, Tencent wechat, and believe they are the most powerful tools for any company to unlock huge value in the Chinese market.
Make Your Yiwu Sourcing Trip a Reality!
Let’s take a sourcing trip together. Like most of us, we talk about doing it, but never take action. Well – let’s go as a group and make it a reality. We look forward to getting to know you, learning together, sharing strategies together, and getting some new and interesting product ideas to sell on our e-commerce stores! See you there!
“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.”
