Organisers Expecting More Visitors for CITExpo 2008
Show organisers are expecting more visitors than ever when nearly 300 exhibitors present their tyre products at the 6th CITExpo, held at the Shanghai Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center on 17, 18 and 19 September 2008. Technology on show will include radial tyres, bias tyres, wheels/rims, tyre maintenance equipments, retread materials and equipments, tyre production material and equipment and other related products. According to CITExpo organisers, Reliable International Exhibition Services Co., Ltd., the two original exhibition halls have already been fully occupied by new and rebooking exhibitors, causing them to add Hall 1A to exhibition space.
Looking ahead, Reliable announced that the 7th CITExpo will be held in the same venue on 9, 10 and 11 September 2009. According to the organizer, they have already received more than 15 exhibitors’ bookings for the 2009 show. Those early bookings have committed a year in advance in order secure the best booth location for the future CITExpo show, the organisers explained.
Wilko Fong, Reliable’s managing director, mentioned that CITExpo has been expanding its size and the number of exhibitors since the first show in 2003. Two factors are said to have led to the hall expansion this year. Firstly, many rebooking exhibitors have expanded their stand size for attracting and accommodating audiences. Secondly, more and more suppliers find CITExpo an effective trade show for them to meet the buyers from around the globe. As a result over 30 per cent of the exhibitors are newcomers to CITExpo at this stage.
Besides the major Chinese manufacturers, foreign brands’ representatives and other suppliers, the nearly 300 exhibitors will also include the worldwide suppliers from the five continents such as the United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, India, Italy, Germany, Russia, Singapore, China Taiwan and other countries and regions.
