In a significant convergence of procurement experts and business leaders, Southern California recently became the nexus for international trade enthusiasts aiming to enhance their sourcing strategies from China. The event, orchestrated by Made-in-China.com - one of the largest sourcing platforms, Global Chamber Los Angeles - a growing and collaborating community of CEOs, executives, investors and industry leaders in 525 metro regions around the world, and inQbrands – the end-to-end supply chain solutions for retailers, distributors, and wholesalers, offered an unparalleled opportunity to engage with Chinese trade practices efficiently and cost-effectively.
The “International Sourcing Made Easy – Selected Sourcing Connect” event unfolded with an impressive opening ceremony, highlighted by a compelling institutional address and welcoming speech that set a collaborative tone for the day. The forum then transitioned to the much-anticipated presentation by Doug Bruhnke, CEO at Global Chamber. Bruhnke, a veteran in the China trade corridor since 1988, shared his expansive insights drawing from over three decades of experience, recently echoed in his statements to Xinhuan News post his engagement at preparatory events for the prestigious Canton Fair and China International Import Exposition.
The agenda progressed with a presentation by Made-in-China.com that explored the myriad opportunities in Chinese trade, punctuated by a networking and matchmaking session designed to foster direct connections between attendees and top-tier source companies.
inQbrands did not just discuss their capabilities; they demonstrated their omnichannel strategy acumen, showcasing how they facilitate opportunities across various channels including brick-and-mortar stores, wholesalers, e-tailers, distributors, and ultimately, the end consumers. Their collaborative business relationships, which include strategic alliances, joint ventures, and direct investments, have proven to drive innovation, reduce costs, and mitigate risks.
A tea break provided a brief respite before attendees were given the choice between a warehouse tour by inQbrands Inc and business matchmaking — both promising a deep dive into the mechanics of successful sourcing.
