Recognized as one of the largest Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations in the West, the Asian American Expo 2004 now in its 23rd anniversary is slated for January 17th (Saturday) and January 18th (Sunday) at Fairplex in Pomona. Every year more than 100,000 Asian consumers are expected to attend this spectacular trade show.
Twenty-one years ago, the Rosemead-based Chinese Overseas Marketing Service, Inc. organized of the Asian American Expo to share a living cultural heritage and to promote a better understanding among people of different backgrounds through the celebration of the Asian Lunar New Year Festival. The expo features more than 800 booths in four (4) large exhibition halls – Buildings 4, 5, 6 & 7 showcasing services in the financial, insurance, medical, health, telecommunication, banking, etc. Featured products come in the wide range of cosmetics, health food, jewelry, show cars, hi-tech electronic and computer equipment/accessories, household equipment, etc.
“The Expo successfully builds a two-way dialogue between the Asian booming market and the U.S. marketers,” says Mr. Alan Kao, President of the Company. “It also provides positive direct one-on-one contact opportunities between sellers and consumers.”
The Expo also offers three (3) food courts where authentic traditional Asian foods are sold. Food lovers will have an opportunity to sample a wide selection of mouthwatering Asian delicacies to tease their taste buds. They can look forward to delicious food like Chinese Chow-Mien, Chicken, Beef, Vegetables, Dumplings, Pot stickers, Tapioca Pearl Drinks, exotic slush drinks, Japanese Sushi, etc.
The Expo offers exciting, dramatic, colorful and spectacular live musical and performances on the seven (7) stages set up throughout the buildings. This is non-stop for the whole two (2) show days. We have more than 80 groups of entertainers and performers to entertain the crowds. As for this year’s highlights we have invited several famous singers to perform a live concert. Also it includes a lingerie modeling show, cooking demonstrations, Japanese Taiko, Native Malaysian dances, Thai traditional dances, Flamenco dancing, Sambala Samba (Brazilian) dancing, ballroom dancing, etc. The lion and dragon dances are a must for the Lunar New Year celebrations and to usher in the New Year.
Building 7 is devoted and dedicated to all pet and animal lovers, young and old. We offer a petting zoo with adorable cuddly animals like goats, sheep, llamas, ponies, pigs, rabbits, etc. Pet vendors will also offer a variety of dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, reptiles, etc for sale.
