In 2017, around 7 300 visitors from 65 countries came to Cologne to attend Asia-Pacific Sourcing.

Asia-Pacific Sourcing 2019 will be brought forward one day in order to avoid a clash with the Cologne Carnival. The trade fair will now take place from 25 to 27 February 2019 in Cologne (Germany), i.e. from Monday to Wednesday, so that the event does not coincide with the "Weiberfastnacht" festivities and the street carnival on the Thursday.

Since 2015 Asia-Pacific Sourcing, which is seen as Europe's number 1 sourcing platform, has been held parallel to the International Trade Fair for Retail Promotions and Imports (IAW), which is seen as leading fair for orders and promotional products, seasonal impulse articles, trend-led articles and the volume business all over Europe. This event will also be brought forward at short notice.
