Occupying 5 exhibition halls, this year Sinostar-ITE planned a total gross exhibition area of about 57,000 square meters.
With 5 exhibit zones covering the entire industry – including “China & International Raw Materials,” “China Machinery, Instrument & Services,” “International Machinery, Instrument & Services,” “Powder Coatings Technology” and “UV/EB Technology & Products” – CHINACOAT2021 allows exhibitors to consolidate their presence in Asia especially China, and seize new opportunities during the economic recovery, organizers said.
Asia, particularly China, is anticipated to rebound in 2021 and continues to be the world’s fastest-growing coatings market, organizers noted.
According to Sinostar-ITE, market projects the GDP of Asia will grow by 6.8% while China’s GDP is expected to rebound to 7.9% in 2021.
China’s economy grew more than expected last year by reporting 2.3% GDP growth, exceeding RMB¥100 trillion for the first time, according to the company.
To allow exhibitors and visitors who were not able to attend the 2020 Guangzhou Ground Show to still take part, the organizer launched a brand new Virtual Show for industry players to continue participating in a hybrid format last year.
CHINACOAT will continue to offer an online platform for exhibitors to highlight their products and technologies virtually to visitors this year.
CHINACOAT 2020 in Guangzhou managed to attract over 22,200 trade visitors from 20 countries/regions, together with over 710 exhibitors from 21 countries/regions, according to Sinostar-ITE.
