On July 13, the 6th China Yiwu International Hardware and Electric Appliances Fair was held at Yiwu International Expo Center. The fair was hosted by Yiwu China Commodity City Exhibition Co., Ltd., with a total of 1600 standard booths, more than 1200 exhibitors, and an exhibition area of 40,000 square meters. The exhibition covered four major sectors – hardware tools, architectural hardware, electronics & electrical, and labor protection appliances – with more than 1,500 categories in total. The exhibitors were from 15 provinces, cities, and regions, including Zhejiang, Shandong, Hebei, Jiangsu, Henan, and Guangdong. It was estimated that over 50,000 visitors will attend the fair.

Affected by the pandemic, global exhibitors and buyers who were unable to come to Yiwu could participate in the online fair to see the exhibitions, negotiate with the suppliers, and seek opportunities. The online fair was from June 16 to July 15, a total of 30 days. Meanwhile, several online events were also held, such as a procurement matchmaking conference, to which 49 companies and 10 overseas buyers were invited for business discussion. In addition, the organizer sent experienced livestreaming teams to high-quality exhibitors in the Pearl River Delta to provide livestreaming for the factories via WeChat, TikTok, and other platforms. The combined viewers of four livestreams reached 128,000.

On the first day of the hardware fair, Xu Zeneng, general manager of Yongkang Meinengda Hardware Tools, said that in previous years, most of his customers came from physical stores and international exhibitions. However, a sharp drop in customers due to the pandemic forced him to re-examine the domestic market as well as the online market. This time, Xu brought more than 100 new products to the fair and arranged sales personnel to livestream for international businessmen who were unable to visit China, which worked well.
