On the one hand, China’s positive momentum in Covid-19 control has thus been further consolidated, and nationwide virus control is now being conducted on an ongoing basis. On the other hand, work resumption and social consumption are gradually returning to normal levels. According to statistics from the Ministry of Culture & Tourism, the May Day holiday saw 115 million domestic tourist trips, generating RMB47.56 billion revenue for travel operators. According to statistics from China UnionPay, during the May Day holiday, the average daily transaction amount of the UnionPay network has reached 97% of the normal level of the same period last year.
Social economy and market consumption are returning to normal. As the economic “barometer”, the exhibition & convention industry starts operations, and normal exhibitions and conventions are constantly re-opened. For example, from April 30 to May 5, the Hunan Auto Show 2020 was held at the Hunan International Convention & Exhibition Center, with more than 62,380 visitors.
As the world’s largest exhibition in the building decoration industry, CBD Fair (Guangzhou) will take place on July 8 as scheduled, and this is our constant contract with the building decoration industry each year. Let’s join CBD Fair (Guangzhou) on July 8 for a safe, healthy and fruitful event!
Are Ready. Welcome to Join Us
The preparation for CBD Fair (Guangzhou) to be held on July 8 as scheduled is currently in progress in an orderly manner as planned.
Firstly, provide an excellent display platform. CBD Fair (Guangzhou), known as “the Debut Platform for Champion Enterprises”, has always provided an excellent platform for the champion enterprises in the industry and those committed to becoming champion enterprises to present their new products, new designs, new technologies, new materials and new strategies. The pandemic cannot stop the demands of enterprises for participation in this exhibition. In addition to many brands that have attended the exhibition for many years, this session sees a lot of new faces (some listed): Gome will introduce IXINA, Europe’s largest cupboard & kitchen appliance retail brand. Kasun cooperates with Israel’s and China’s top design organizations to launch Casun, a young and mild luxury brand for the first time. Bode Ceramic Tiles will launch a full range of ceramic slabs for the first time. Nola will create a new online and offline customized home furnishing retail model. Siemens will offer the world’s leading new smart door lock products and smart home solutions. Brother Wood will present the meticulously developed antibacterial door series products. Wangli will present its latest smart door products with door control technologies. Xinduo Group will showcase full range of products including entry doors, wooden doors, armored doors and smart doors.
Secondly, achieve “Two Optimizations” for audiences. In the face of the impact of the pandemic, CBD Fair (Guangzhou) spares no effort to boost and empower the industry and to seek good opportunities for the industry to develop after the pandemic. On the one hand, it optimizes the nature and structure of the audiences, consolidates the advantages of dealers and franchisees, actively increases the number of real estate developers, designers and crossover professionals to meet the needs of enterprises for investment promotion and channel transformation and upgrade to a maximum. On the other hand, the exhibition optimizes the source and structure of the audience areas, deeply taps the economically developed areas and first- and second-tier cities and deeply explores the third-, fourth-tier and even county-level markets. The two-pronged approach will effectively help exhibitors develop new channels in a diversified and all-round way.
Thirdly, continue to increase the momentum of design empowerment. Design is another channel that many enterprises hope to open up. CBD Fair (Guangzhou) has been committed to creating a design ecosystem for the building decoration industry to empower exhibitors. We will invite a large number of designers to hold a series of design events such as the CBD Fair Design Festival, Design Face-to-face Forum, “Leju Design Open Course” and “China Interior Design New Power Ranking”, as well as cooperate with the Canton Fair PDC to hold the “Life·Home” Modern Residential Space Display and Premium Design Forum, bringing together the cutting-edge design experts to present the world’s leading comprehensive residential solutions and the world’s top design concepts and serve the development of enterprises after the pandemic.
Fourthly, promote the exchange of innovative ideas and create the “Debut Platform for Innovative Ideas” for the industry. Invite industry experts, famous entrepreneurs and experts to hold the high-end conferences and forums, inspiring the industry with innovative ideas to cope with new markets, new ecology and new opportunities after the pandemic.
Fifthly, strengthen online promotion and digitally upgrade the exhibition. The exhibition will maximize the advantages of the platform, spare no effort to gather resources from all sides and strive to provide more high-quality and professional online promotion services for the industry. In April, 6 online salons and open courses were held. Of which, the “Home Minority Trend” online salon co-hosted with jiaju.sina.com.cn, attracted nearly 290,000 online viewers. The exhibition cooperated with chinalink.tv to help exhibitors promote brands for free by short videos, geared to the needs of designers, real estate developers, related industries, government authorities and other groups. The cumulative number of clicks has exceeded 1.3 million. Next, CBD Fair (Guangzhou) will further increase the promotion of online events and accelerate the digital upgrade of the exhibition, providing exhibitors with a more diversified display platform.
The exhibition will proceed from the pandemic prevention from various aspects, respond quickly, strictly follow the government's latest standards for the pandemic prevention and control and continue to improve the pandemic prevention and control measures. Welcome to join CBD Fair (Guangzhou) on July 8 for a safe, healthy and fruitful event!
