RS Components Continues Push into China’s Emerging Second and Third Tier Cities

leave a comment »

2012/08/16 10:26

Move is in line with rapid economic expansion and relocation of manufacturing bases inland

SHANGHAI, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ —
RS Components( http://bit.ly/e5JV6l ), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, is bringing its wide product range and service offerings closer to China’s emerging second and third tier cities. With traction already established in China’s biggest cities, RS Components is expanding its footprint by heading west, and the Chengdu Electronics Fair on 16 August is one of the key platforms for the company to engage customers in that region.

(Logo: http://www.prnasia.com/sa/2011/05/04/20110504368830.jpg )

“We are beginning to see more customer demands in the western areas of China. China’s growth is no longer limited to the big cities like Beijing and Shanghai. With more and more companies relocating their production bases into the inland provinces, we foresee an exciting avenue for growth and demand for our products in the cities in those areas,” said Clement Zheng, China Country Manager for RS Components.

RS Components’ extension into second and third tier cities comes at a time when recent social and economic reforms have transformed the manufacturing, commercial, and regulatory landscapes of China’s developing regions. According to a 2012 Economic Intelligence Unit report, western provinces outperformed the rest of the country in 2011 as aggregate GDP growth reached 14.1%, compared with the average on the eastern seaboard of 10.5% (Note 1). Central provinces have also benefited from large infrastructure investments and favourable policies aimed at attracting businesses.

Against this backdrop, RS Components will be showcasing its wide range of electronics, maintenance and automation and control products at the Chengdu Electronics Fair from 16-18 August 2012. The company will also take the opportunity to introduce its award-winning eCommerce website that enables customers to search and browse over 550,000 products online.

Visitors to the RS Components booth will be able to test-drive DesignSpark PCB, the company’s free professional standard PCB design software. On-site live demonstrations of Raspberry Pi, a credit card sized computer board that has seen high levels of demand, will also be held at regular intervals. As an added bonus, visitors that register their details at the RS Components booth stand to win an iPad.

“RS Components grew 9% in Asia in the last financial year (Note 2), and China has been a key driver of this growth. As such we are constantly finding ways to help manufacturing communities all across China to gain access to the latest technologies and products faster. We look forward to meeting new customers in Chengdu and sharing how RS Components can help raise the quality of their work through initiatives such as our next-day delivery to 200 Chinese cities and 135,000 locally stocked products, along with our technical support and quality assurance,” added Zheng.

leave a comment »

Prevailing economic conditions have compelled the global travel industry to look at new source markets and India stands in the top two

MUMBAI, India, Aug. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — As we gear up for SATTE 2013, there has been a keen interest in South Asia’s leading travel mart. With India now being looked at more favourably as a very important market for global tourism products, SATTE is undoubtedly the ideal platform for newer destinations to tap into the Indian market. The current economic conditions have compelled the global travel industry to look for new source markets, and India and China have emerged as the top two.

At ITB Berlin earlier this year, SATTE received very positive feedback from destinations such as The Seychelles, Zambia, Botswana, Philippines, The South Pacific Tourism Organisation, Japan, Hungary, Germany, Panama, Venezuela, Brand USA, Kenya and Singapore’s Changi Airport along with a host of private sector participants from Singapore and other countries – all of whom have become aware of the immense potential of the Indian market. At Arabian Travel Mart in Dubai (ATM), key exhibitors from the Middle East region said they are now looking eastwards to do business with India, and many countries and individual Emirates from the UAE are optimistic about the Indian market. Prominent names include Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Oman, Abu Dhabi, and Ras-Al-Khaimah among others. At Bula Fiji Tourism Exchange 2012 (BFTE) in Fiji, 15 nations from the South Pacific said they want to work closely with the Indian travel trade to increase awareness of their countries. These nations intend to work together under the umbrella of The South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO). International players who continue to show keen interest in SATTE 2013 include Abu Dhabi, Argentina, Bhutan, Dubai, Egypt, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Macau, Malaysia, The Maldives, Mauritius, Oman, Spain, Thailand and Turkey, and many more. State Tourism Boards such as Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Lakshwadeep Tourism Board, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha have also expressed their support for next year’s event. Many of the above key national and international tourism players are already rebooking at SATTE 2013.

SATTE 2012 set milestones for the Indian travel and tourism industry. The event saw a record number of sellers. Exhibitors came from over 33 countries and 23 states in India and over 550 companies exhibited at the event with an impressive year on year growth of 6.7 per cent. SATTE’s success continues to demonstrate India’s ever growing importance, both as a destination and as a lucrative market.

SATTE 2013 (http://www.satte.in) will be held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, from January 16-18, 2013 and its companion event SATTE Mumbai at World Trade Centre on January 21-22.

The enhancement will not only expand the coverage of multimedia news distribution on mobile devices, but also enhance mobile consumers’ news reading experience.

With the development of Internet technology in the past few years, online users have been engaged with more and more video content, making it a fundamental and one of the most important elements in news distribution and marketing. Following this trend, PR Newswire offers MNR service in order to combine text-only news with multimedia content, including videos, pictures, customized background, hyperlinks, file downloads, social media sharing tools and call-for-action buttons. Various types of corporate news content will reach different news websites and journalists so that more target audiences can be engaged in online search engines and social networks. So far, PR Newswire’s MNR service has helped many clients such as Adidas, Mercedes-Benz, Johnnie Walker, Tourism Australia, Gates Foundation, Lego, etc. to engage a huge number of audiences.

In the past few years, online surfing and information collecting via mobile devices has become an everyday habit for many news consumers. Thus, PR Newswire has developed its independent iOS App to make it more convenient for consumers and journalists to read news from PR Newswire on their mobile devices.

“According to PR Newswire web analytics, compared to the text-only press release, there is a 77 percent increase in average online views per press release when multimedia elements (e.g. video, picture, hyperlink, file download, customized landing page, etc.) are added,” said Brent Li, PR Newswire’s Senior Multimedia Product Manager. “Therefore, we encourage companies and organizations to make use of PR Newswire’s MNR service as much as possible. Now, PR Newswire’s MNR service smoothly extends to mobile platforms and fulfills a much wider coverage.”
