IE expo China took place from 13-15 August, 2020 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre SNIEC in Pudong-Shanghai.
IE expo China - presented by IFAT is a trade fair with a high reputation in China and the whole Asian region. Although the show has been postponed twice in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s edition still counted 1’851 exhibitors (-196 compared to 2019) and 73’176 trade visitors (+79 compared to 2019) on a floor space of 150’000m² (14 halls).
Due to the circumstances this edition had a strong national focus. Nonetheless, Pavilions from Germany, France, the US and Switzerland (Swissenviro) have been represented.
Since travel restrictions applied during the exhibition period in China, the exhibiting companies at the SWISS Pavilion had decided to send their local employees and partners to the trade fair to represent them.
The Swiss exhibitors were exceptionally satisfied with the quality of the visitors (department representatives with governmental projects, private project owners, engineers and product designers from research and governmental institutes). They have noticed that due to the COVID19-pandemic fewer visitors were present on their booth than in the previous year. However, they have achieved their main goal of successfully promoting their products and new technology by participating in the exhibition and look forward to returning to IE expo China in 2021 with hopefully even more visitors and a normalized worldwide situation.
We would like to thank our exhibitors on-site Hitachi Zosen Inova AG / HITZ Corporation, Keller AG für Druckmesstechnik, SID SA, as well as Fimars SA and Bang&Clean Technologies AG (poster participation), for being part of the 11th Swiss Pavilion at IE expo China in Shanghai!
A very special thank you goes to Mr. Léon Vassé, Innovation Manager Industrial Equipments at SID Machinery Beijing for personally taking care of all the exhibitors of the SWISS Pavilion!
The next event is taking place from 20-22 April 2021 at SNIEC.
