Agoda.com lists early bird specials just in time for the Canton Fair

Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), has announced early bird hotel deals in Guangzhou, China in the lead up to the 113th China Import and Export Fair, the largest trade fair in the region and a major event for importers, exporters, and manufacturers worldwide.

Also known as the Canton Fair, the twice-yearly event has been growing steadily since it first began in 1957, and has thrived with support by China’s Ministry of Commerce. In the decades since, China has emerged as a top tourist destination and a key component in the global trade engine, underlying the importance of the show to a vast number of industries.

The event will take place over three 5-day phases at Guangzhou’s huge Pazhou Complex: April 15-19, April 23-27, and May 1-5. The previous session boasted 58,714 standard booths from 24,213 exhibitors and enjoyed a turnover of more than USD 37.9 billion. But the Canton Fair is only a small part of what visitors can expect to see.

The huge city of Guangzhou is itself an attraction worth visiting. It’s a hub of tourism, real estate, education, finance and politics on the southern mainland and a vibrant example of 21st century China. It’s the perfect opportunity to mix business with pleasure, as visitors can explore Guangzhou’s many cultural attractions, historic architecture, fabulous shopping, and of course, authentic Cantonese cuisine.

Those planning to attend should act fast to take advantage of deals at hotels that offer convenient access to the bustling downtown area, major tourist attractions, and shuttle transport to the exhibition grounds. Take a look at the hotels below and get ready for an exciting visit to this great event.
