1. China International Import Expo

Meet 14 Austrian industry leaders at China’s 2018 top-notch trade fair!

The first China International Import Expo (CIIE) will take place from November 5 - 10, 2018 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai.

ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA and the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs are jointly organizing an Austrian National pavilion. The Austrian Federal Minister for Digital and Economic Affairs, Dr. Margarete Schramböck, will also visit the CIIE trade fair and inaugurate the Austrian National pavilion, where 14 leading Austrian companies are showcasing their state-of-the-art solutions. Their wide ranged portfolio and excellent expertise meet the increased demand in a growing Chinese market.
The trade fair is co-sponsored by go-international, a shared export-initiative of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs and the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.

Austrian companies will use the platform of the CIIE to present themselves to potential Chinese business partners and buyers. We also offer an extensive supporting program with official meetings, participation in the International Trade Forum, company visits etc.
With an exhibition space of over 240,000 square meters, the CIIE fair is an excellent opportunity for companies to take their first steps towards entering the Chinese market or to further expand their existing business in China. Take this opportunity and get in touch with Austrian industry leaders at the Austrian National Pavilion and explore potential ways of collaboration.

The Austrian National Pavilion at the CIIE intends to reflect the country’s image of lush nature, rich culture, high living standard and top-quality products and services. The pavilion presents Austrian business know-how and internationally acclaimed expertise, and portrays how imaginative, ingenious and unique Austrian businesses and their products and services are. It attracts attention through its distinctive design resembling a mountain range and has a high recognition value for the visitors of the CIIE. Also, it conveys a welcoming aura to stay just a little while longer – a reminder of Austria’s hospitality – and acts as an exquisite communication platform to connect with Austrian businesses.
The organizers of the CIIE expect around 150,000 Chinese visitors and offer a comprehensive program with matchmaking, seminars, lectures and much more. The fair addresses export companies in a wide range of sectors from Consumer Electronics & Appliances to Automotive, Food and Beverages to Tourism to name just a few.
