Making the most out of attending the China Import Expo, requires good planning and coordination
- The China Import Expo (CIE) is a multi-sector trade fair that occurs annually in Kunshan, a suburb of Shanghai. The CIE expo showcases the products and services of companies in consumer goods, metalworking, machinery and automation and clean tech. CIE is hosted by the Ministry of Commerce, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade and Investment, and the Jiangsu Provincial People’s Government. In 2014, CIE attracted over 600 enterprises from 42 countries and over 50,000 trade visitors from all over the word.
- Empire State Development, the trade and investment promotion agency of the state of New York, needed assistance to facilitate the participation of companies from the state of New York at the Expo and make appointments with high value customers and potential distributors in advance to ensure the most effective use of their time while at the event.
