Q: What kind of visitor attends R+T Asia?

R+T Asia is widely acclaimed for being the gathering of the year for retailers and wholesalers of roller shutters, doors/gates, windows and sun protection systems, not only from China but also from all around the Asia Pacific region and beyond. For these professionals, it is the sourcing event of the year. In addition to these primary visitors, a growing number of architects and interior designers are also attending the show to get insights on new trends and products.

As China has the world’s largest construction industry and is the largest producer of construction materials, R+T Asia offers a perfect platform for companies that want to do business in the Asia-Pacific region. Details and statistics on visitors can be found in the post-show report of our 2015 show.

Q: Do visitors sign contracts during the show?

Most certainly. R+T Asia is an important sourcing event for the industry, and thousands of trade visitors flock to the show to place orders for the year to come. Since doing business in Asia in general and in China in particular is a matter of long-term personal connections, R+T Asia is a perfect platform to meet potential new customers and strengthen relationship with existing ones.

Q: Do I need to prepare promotion material in Chinese?

Although more and more Chinese businessmen now master some English, it is strongly recommended to prepare collaterals (brochures, posters, etc.) in Chinese to facilitate communication with the numerous potential buyers you will meet during three days at the show. Also, hiring an interpreter can be extremely useful. This service can be ordered via the organizer for a moderate cost by completing and submitting the corresponding form in the online exhibitor manual.

Q: Can I sell products directly at the show?

Yes, products can be sold directly to customers during the show.

Q: Should we plan to keep our booth open throughout the show?

Yes! To maintain an active show floor, exhibits are not permitted to exit the premises before the end of the last day of the show, and all relevant formalities (custom clearance, taxes, etc.) should be completed before exiting. If needed, the official freight forwarder will assist exhibitors with this task.

Q: What are the accommodation options?

Through our official travel agency, VNU Exhibitions Asia has contracted guest rooms with several hotels at negotiated rates. For rates and reservations, please contact our >>travel agent. (link to stay)
