     On March 20, the first online exhibition in China—the Spring Online Exhibition of Picture Frames in Yiwu—was held at the Third Zone of Yiwu International Trade City, sponsored by the China General Chamber of Commerce and the Yiwu Market Development Commission. More than 40 frame companies from the Yiwu painting industry released 165 new products to global customers through livestreaming on Youbo and Tebaobao, two applications closely connected with WeChat. Over 42,000 online visitors watched the livestream.

The online exhibition period is from March 20 to May 10. The virtual scale of the exhibition is expected to reach 20,000 m2, with a total of 800 international standard booths and more than 400 foreign exhibitors. The exhibition will market the products to nearly 80,000 purchasers in the provinces of Guangdong, Shandong, Fujian, and Hebei. This year’s online frame exhibition is divided into five major exhibition areas: frames for wedding photo, for general picture, for decorative painting products, for relevant equipment and accessories, and top of the line picture frames from Yiwu.

According to public data, there are more than 4,000 companies engaged in the production and operation of the painting industry in Yiwu, with 200,000 employees. With a 140,000 m2 marketing area, the industry’s products have sold to more than 200 countries and regions worldwide, with annual sales hitting 12 billion RMB.
