CIIE 2022

With the development of the post-epidemic era, China’s economy is recovering rapidly, and its market is full of business opportunities. Other countries are also gradually opening their borders. More overseas companies are showing strong interest in the Chinese market, and Australian made companies are no exception. Now many companies are now considering participating in the 5th CIIE 2022.
Our existing exhibition group brands, Australian Natural Biotechnology, Unibale and W&H, have confirmed their participation in CIIE 2022. Meanwhile, Austar, Dairy-Pacific and Australia Biotechnology Corporation, as new entrants for 2022, have also signed contracts with the exhibition group. In addition to these confirmed companies, other companies are in the process of signing contracts.
According to official reports, the number of companies making reservations for the 5th CIIE 2022 is increasing, and the reserved exhibition area has exceeded 180,000 square meters. The appointment progress is faster than the same period last year, so it will be hard to find a booth for the 5th CIIE.
In order to enable more Australian small and medium-sized companies to have the opportunity to participate in the CIIE and have more business opportunities, the Australian Made and Oz-Town exhibition group now starts the CIIE 2022 investment to reserve the booth for 2022 in advance for the exhibitors.
We look forward to a fruitful 2022 and gather at the CIIE.
