Global Sources 

Global Sources

I've spent some time recently thinking about China, especially the wild-west frontier of licensing content to that market for a client of ours. Not for the faint of heart, or light of wallet.

Everyone in b2b media is thinking about China (as is everyone in business). Yesterday, I commented on the Penton/CMP/Global Sources alliance.

I've spent a little time researching Global Sources, which looks to be a fascinating company. Publicly-traded (NASDAQ), and Hong Kong-based, Global Sources calls itself "a leading business-to-business (B2B) media company and a primary facilitator of two-way trade with Greater China. It provides sourcing information to volume buyers and integrated marketing services to suppliers."

The company delivers magazines, trade shows, online marketplaces, catalogs and more, all focused on the sourcing business. And it seems to be leveraging its history and position with select joint ventures and partnerships with US-based media and online companies.

See, for example, this post on Global Source's Q2 results, the impact of the adjusted exchange rates of the Yuan, and Global Source's alliance with eBay.
