China’s State Council announced yesterday that the 127th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair) will be held online in mid to late June due to the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19.

Canton Fair is China’s largest trade expo held every spring and autumn in Guangzhou, China. The displayed products cover categories including electronics and household electrical appliance, food and beverage, consumer goods and textiles. The spring session last year attracted over 195,454 foreign buyers from 213 countries and regions across the world.

It’s the first time this global trade fair is showcased completely online. This year, exhibitors from around the world will be displaying their products online. According to Canton Fair, they will offer an online display space for exhibitors to upload company and product information to attract buyers’ attention.

Every product page will display the company information, product photos and description, similar to what we see on Amazon. And these photos are the flat 2D ones we see every day. It’s unlikely that we can view them from different angles. But it would be more convincing if customers see online products like how they see it in real world. This is exactly how 3D works.

The 3D models above are constructed by Revopoint’s 3D scanners Tanso and Handysense, which can capture objects from small to large sizes in minutes, with true-color texture. The models are viewable from all sides. The handheld 3D scanner Handysense is able to scan a variety of materials including gypsum, resin, pottery, bamboo and metal.

When people are stuck at home, spending most of their days staring at the screens, displaying your products in a more fun and realistic way would catch their eyes, then why not give it a try?
