The first China International Import Expo (CIIE) will take place in Shanghai on November 5-10, 2018. The Expo is China’s invitation to governments, businesses, exhibitors and professional purchasers all over the world to participate in the importing of goods and services to satisfy fast growing consumer markets. Those who want to participate are welcome to register through CCBC.


The commercial exhibition area will host exporters to China in sectors including Consumer Electronics and Appliances; Apparel, Accessories and Consumer Goods; Automobile; High-end Intelligent Equipment; Food and Agricultural Products, Medical Equipment and Medical Care Products; and Trade in Services. Services include Tourism, Emerging Technologies (IT, Environment, Biotech, IP), Culture and Education; Creative Design; and Services Outsourcing.


CCBC will facilitate and support registration for Canadian companies, organizations, or agencies wanting to participate in the CIIE commercial exhibition.

CCBC will assist companies in registering for the Expo, connecting you with authorized resources at the Expo (such as booth decoration), and coordinating the Canadian commercial presence as the scope of Canada’s participation becomes clear. CCBC will also serve as a connection point to the country pavilion to be organized by the Government of Canada.


CCBC is a strong supporter of Brand Canada and recognizes this as a prime opportunity for members and potential members who want to secure their future growth by seeking greater economic opportunities in the Chinese market to meet and connect with top Chinese and international import decision makers at the CIIE.
