HI, EVERYONE

One of my friends in China has a manufacture, trading company, which can make racing jacket, motorcyle apparel, or some other accessories like glass cloth, or any other apparel that customers have required. He wish he could find some collaborators in USA ( means someone ask him to produce sth)

My questions is that, is there any specific forum or website about this kind of trading business, so he could find the potential customers?


any suggestions will be welcome

thanks

Do you mean your friend's company is a garment manufacture with international trade deparment? Basically in China,exhibitions/fairs and B2B are the most effective ways to explore clients.I don't think there will be superior client you could meet on the forum/internet,most of the petential clients on internet sometimes could be tricky.

Thanks,
Maybe I don't make it clear that his company is garment manufacture, so I don't think selling from ebay is good idea for him. He just want to find some clients need him to make stuffs.

Yes, that is what I want. Could you give me more detailed information about the B2B? Do you think that is possible that I find some clients for him in some ways?

Thanks

just like wat Levis said i think you can attend more exhibitions/fairs like Canton Fairs.
Finding potential customrs there may be more practical than other ways. B2B webistes also have many traps.
