Cultural and Creative Exhibition Industrial Park to Locate in Liuyang
The Changsha Exhibition Service Industry Association and the People’s Government of Puji Town, Liuyang City signed an agreement on August 20 to cooperate on the “Cultural and Creative Exhibition Industrial Park” project.
The project will focus on building a convention and exhibition industry service area, a material processing supporting service area, an industrial design center, and an exhibition area for derivative industry.
With a total floor area of about 500 mu (33.3 ha.) and an estimated total investment of 500 million yuan, it will be China’s first exhibition industry service cluster.
"Puji Town has superior geographical advantages and a good business environment, which set conditions for developing the convention and exhibition industry,” said Chen Shuzhong, CPC Committee secretary and director of the Changsha Convention and Exhibition Office.
With the rapid development of Changsha’s convention and exhibition industry, the number of large-scale and international exhibitions is increasing. However, the basic supporting exhibition services are in short supply. Therefore, it is the right time to develop the “Cultural and Creative Exhibition Industrial Park” project.
The project will build a platform that integrates exhibition design, construction, logistics, and transportation to create a unique exhibition brand. This will guarantee more scientific, efficient, and high-quality exhibition services; and, vigorously promote the development of Changsha’s exhibition economy.
In recent years, under the guidance of the innovation-oriented opening up strategy of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and Hunan Provincial People’s Government, Changsha has adhered to the overall goal of "building Changsha into an exhibition highland in central China and a national famous exhibition city", and made sustained efforts in key exhibition project cultivation.
It has created a number of influential exhibition brands including the Changsha International Construction Equipment Exhibition (CICEE), China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo (CAETE), China (Hunan) International Rail Transit Expo (CIRTE), China Food & Catering Expo (CFCE), and Central China (Hunan) International Agriculture Fair (CCIAF).
