Online Fairs and Expositions

Post Time: 2020-03-17
      Since the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus, more than 100 international fairs and expositions have been postponed or canceled, and over 130 countries and regions have issued special regulations on the entry of Chinese citizens and goods, which has largely restricted Chinese companies’ business activities overseas.

In order to help companies retain their customers, expand their markets, and develop their foreign trade, the Jinhua Committee of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) has coordinated different institutions and organizations and introduced various measures. For example, the CCPIT (Jinhua) has organized online expositions for companies to participate in, to be held by Zhejiang Province.

Zhang Sheng, director of the CCPIT (Jinhua), says that attending online expositions has become an efficient and practical way for companies to obtain international orders without going to designated venues, which not only saves costs but also abides by the pandemic prevention restrictions. Some exposition sponsors even provide year-round services.

In order to support the effective work and production resumption of international trade companies, Zhejiang Province and Jinhua are jointly developing a new pattern of trade promotion by integrating offline and online expositions and promoting traditional and emerging markets and industries.
