IE expo China celebrates 20th anniversary, as leading green-tech expo returns to Shanghai
IE expo China 2019 will celebrate its 20th anniversary when the premier green-tech event returns, with multiple upgrades, to Shanghai New International Expo Center from 15-17 April 2019 – showcasing a wide array of advanced technologies and solutions in environmental management, water and sewage, solid waste, air pollution and soil management.
China represents the largest and fastest growing emerging market for environmental technologies, with the industry segment’s overall market in China (including goods and services) valued at US$60.7 billion (according to EBI Data Pack, December 2016).
In line with such market opportunities IE expo China has witnessed impressive growth in recent years. The previous edition of the event attracted 66,580 visitors from 59 countries and regions, and 1,762 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions, achieving more than 20-per-cent year-on-year growth – in terms of both exhibition area and the number of global exhibitors and professional visitors.
More space to showcase
In 2019, IE expo China is expected to achieve even greater breakthroughs. The number of exhibition halls will rise from 11 to 13, while the exhibition area will exceed 150,000 square metres to showcase more sub-divisions within the environmental sector.
The show is expected to attract 2,000 industry-leading companies and more than 80,000 domestic and overseas visitors. The exhibition will also invite target visitors from government decision-making departments, engineering companies, design institutes, municipal facilities suppliers, as well as buyer delegations from industries of papermaking, textile, electroplating, pharmaceutical, cement and industrial parks.
Meanwhile, IE expo China will continue to utilise overseas industry associations and media resources to help exhibitors promote in the ‘Belt and Road’ countries and South East Asian market.
Over 40 forums and 700+ speakers
Held alongside the exhibition, the China Environmental Technology Conference is the top event in the environmental protection industry. It builds a multi-level communications platform of politics, production, learning and research in the form of industrial policy interpretation, market hotspot analysis, application case studies and business leader dialogues. More than 40 forums will focus on the latest trends in the industry, and more than 700 speakers will share unique insights on water, air, solid waste, site remediation, environmental monitoring, and innovative technologies to help enterprises seize opportunities in the booming environmental market.
IE expo China 2019 is now recruiting exhibitors. So far, 55 per cent of the previous exhibitors have booked their booths for the next year.
Over the past 20 years, IE expo China has witnessed the iteration, growth and prosperity of China's environmental industry. Bringing together the world's leading brands and companies, the event has become a flagship environmental exhibition in Asia.
