And You Can Quote Me: “I like this fair because it is convenient for me to have face-to-face meetings with so many suppliers in one location and source different kinds of watch straps for the Australian market. At the fair, I can find exactly what I want and see the trends of complete watches. I am going to place orders for leather straps and watch repair tools with two new suppliers today and the total amount is US$6,000. I’ll repeat orders depending on market response.” (Mark McNeil, General Manager, Lindsay’s, Australia, talking about last year’s fair.)
