    So if anyone is interested a tour of Shenzen is being organised by www.hardworx.io for Nov this year.

    Suits electronics guys who are involved in making designing products and prototypes. I have put my name down and confirmed as going.

    I'm not involved in any other way apart from being an attendee.

    The person running it is doing it more as a community thing rather than a monetary thing hence I thought it would be ok posting and giving it a plug for interested parties on here.

    Feel free to ask, happy to answer if I can :)

    just returned from the trip and OMG!

    the scale of the markets is mind blowing.
    youtube videos just don't do justice.

    we stayed in Huaqiangbei itself, first few visits to the markets were just overwhelming.
    lost all metal capacity to think straight upon walking in, building after building, level after level, shop after shop just selling parts, components, electronics, some consumer type stuff too, CNC machines, 3D printers.

    I would love to do something similar one day - are you planning to document the tour at all?

    to be honest, not really. i don't have the time.

    there are some great docos/videos on youtube already.
    nothing I could even remotely match to be honest.

    if someone is planning on going, happy to assist with ideas/suggestions though (in terms of in and around the markets)
    and getting a tailored suit for ~$220! :D
