Recharge Asia Corp. to Host New Event, March 12-14, 2008

Recharge Asia Corp. to Host New Event, March 12-14, 2008

 It’s a trade show designed to welcome Asian companies engaged in the
manufacture, distribution and sale of imaging materials and hardware who are
seeking Western raw material sources and markets. Conversely, it is a trade show
designed for Western companies engaged in the manufacture, distribution and sale
of imaging materials who are seeking Asian raw material sources and markets.
Planned by Recharge Asia magazine, this new event complements the successful
launch of its RechargExpo Singapore 2007 exposition on June 17-19, 2007.

Ms. Sunny Sun, Managing Director of Recharge Asia Corporation, envisions the
new show as “a long overdue interface of two business cultures: imaging industry
players from the Asia Pacific region and their Western counterparts from the
Americas, Europe, and the Middle East.”

The scene of this first ever Asia Pacific Imaging Fair is the Hollywood Hills
on March 12-14, 2008 at the Hilton Universal City Hotel adjacent to Universal

According to Ms. Sun, “This event will open a door to OEMs and rechargers
alike with opportunities for imaging products manufactured in China, Asia, and
Europe to serve buyers in North and South America. It will also enable OEMs and
aftermarket suppliers to display their wares, network, and participate in a
number of marketing and technical sessions.”

Asian Quest: Raising the Bar on Quality

“In conversations with exhibitors and delegates at RechargExpo Singapore last
month (June 17-19),” reports imaging industry pioneer Art Diamond, “I sensed a
powerful, focused trend to raise the quality of Asian products to successfully
compete in world markets. Producers of toners, photoreceptors, remanufactured
cartridges, encrypted chips and other offerings realize that despite their low
prices they cannot challenge existing manufacturers outside their country unless
they raise the quality and the consistency of their products.”

Diamond added, “There is every indication they will succeed sooner rather
than later in this quest for world acceptance. Therefore, 2008 could be perfect
timing for them to negotiate with prospective buyers, dealers and distributors
here in Los Angeles.

Remanufacturing and the production of aftermarket imaging supplies are
growing dramatically worldwide. More than 70% of the consumables produced in
China and India, for example, are export oriented. Chinese manufacturers are
seeking markets in North and South America. India’s leading independent toner
producer, Indian Toners & Developers Ltd., is also targeting export markets as
they are in the process of doubling their production capacity. RechargExpo USA
will prove to be the ideal platform for exposure to these Western markets.

New: A Buyer’s Workshop

One of the star attractions at RechargExpo USA is a Buyer’s Workshop session to
be held at the event’s opening. Buyers will be invited from many of the “big
box” electronics, appliance, and office superstores. These attendees will be
exposed to talks by Vendors on:

* An introduction to the cartridge remanufacturing industry

* How their products should be sold

* The benefits in buying remanufactured and aftermarket imaging products

* Energy savings and environmental benefits

* Cash savings for prudent customers

Chatsworth: Cartridge Remanufacturing Hub

Los Angeles, the largest industrial city in the Western United States has many
manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and large corporations that serve the
imaging industry. Chatsworth, a suburb of Los Angeles in the Simi Valley, is the
cartridge remanufacturing hub of the United States. Thus, RechargExpo is
positioned adjacent to the heart of the American recharging industry. Less than
one-half hour’s drive away, plant visits in Chatsworth are possible and meetings
with prospective customers or suppliers can be conveniently scheduled.
