Building up well-known national conference and exhibition city
The 10th China Meetings Industry Convention (CMIC), the most significant annual grand gathering in conference and incentive travel industry domestically, was held in the International Exhibition Center of Beijing Yanxi Lake on December 5. Changsha was awarded “ 2017 Most Valuable Destination for Conferences”. This is also the national debut for Hunan conference industry, during which a special promotion meeting for conference venues in Changsha would be held.
CMIC, the most influential business exchange platform in the realm of conference industry in China, serves as a high-level platform for opinion exchanges and business cooperation for all parties in conference industry. Themed at “ten years’ conference and incentive - growth and transcendence”, this conference attracted a large number of meeting venues such as Beijing, Hangzhou and Changsha. Nearly 3,000 elites in conference and incentive industry gathered to discuss the development, opportunities and challenges of the industry. The establishment of “pleased to see you in Changsha” exhibition hall was promoted and introduced for attendants all over the country.
Recently, Beijing Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government have attached great importance to the development of economy driven by meetings and exhibitions and has put forward the goal of “ creating meeting and exhibition heights in central China, and building up a famous national meeting and exhibition city”. The tripartite format of meeting and exhibition emphasizing exhibitions, meetings and festival celebration has taken shape. In particular, since 2015, Changsha proposed the goal of “building into a meeting destination city at home and abroad” for the first time and made great effort gaining host for mid- to high-end meetings in Changsha. A large batch of high-level, large-scale, widely-influential meetings like China (Changsha) Intelligent Manufacturing Summit has become a great boost for the development of Changsha’s meeting industry.
