Alibaba Hosts Shopping Festival for B2B Buyers

Alibaba.com, the B2B cross-border online trading platform of Alibaba Group, is hosting an online promotion called the March Expo from March 5 to March 31, 2018, on its website and via its mobile app. With more than 58,000 suppliers — including some of China’s top manufacturers, such as SANY Group and China FAW Group — registered as participants for the online event, the March Expo aims to help both buyers and suppliers worldwide seek new business opportunities through the Alibaba.com online platform.

During the expo, Alibaba will provide several limited-time offers for global buyers, including free inspection service for qualifying orders, and a 15 percent discount on the LCL (Less Than Container Load) logistics service for qualifying orders shipped from China to the U.S.

March Expo is similar to the “Singles Day” online shopping festival held annually by TMall.com, Alibaba’s retail platform. In 2017, the Singles Day sale generated $25.3 billion in sales, doubling 2016 Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales combined.
