CIIE to feature public health, epidemic prevention area
A public health and epidemic prevention exhibition area will be set for this year’s China International Import Expo, said the exhibition’s organizer at a news conference held on Thursday.
Pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, elderly care, rehabilitation and nutrition companies will be feature the thematic exhibition area. More than 80 percent of the planned area has now been reserved, said the organizer.
Nearly 60 Fortune 500 pharmaceutical and medical companies have registered for this year’s CIIE, with the purpose of showcasing their latest ventilators, infrared thermometers and facial masks.
The CIIE this year, which will come for the third time in a row, will be held as scheduled from Nov 5 to 10. By early April, more than 1,000 companies had signed up for the show, including 200 Fortune 500 companies. The planned exhibition area measures 360,000 square meters, with 60 percent of it booked so far.
CIIE’s first online business solicitation meeting was held on Feb 26, during which 268 companies signed agreements to attend this year’s show.
