09-09-09 is opening day for CITEXPO 2009
Seventy percent of floor space has already been booked for CITEXPO 2009, which will be held Sept. 9-11 at Shanghai Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center.
Event organizer Reliable International Exhibition Services Co. Ltd. reports "registration of the exhibitors of CITEXPO 2009 is encouragingly keeping its pace and (is) not affected by the recent financial crisis." This year's event will be the seventh edition of the show.
Nearly 200 exhibitors had reserved trade show space by the end of March, an increase over the number of companies that had reserved space for the last show by that time.
According to Reliable’s Managing Director Wilko Fong, CITEXPO will occupy three levels of the West Hall of Shanghai Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center, and the overall exhibition space is expected to exceed the last show's.
Although worldwide demand for tire-related products has declined since last year, both the returning and new exhibitors of CITEXPO are optimistic about the future and are looking forward to a "sunrise of the economy in the second half of this year," Wilko reports.
