Exhibitors, visitors galore as tourism expo kicks off in Pudong

THE first phase of 2023 Tourism Plus Shanghai, a comprehensive tourism industry expo, opened in the Pudong New Area yesterday, showcasing exhibits on hotels, boats, and lifestyle.

At the Shanghai New International Expo Center, 2,000 exhibitors took up 210,000 square meters of space for the 2023 Hotel & Shop Plus and 26th China Shanghai International Boat Show & The Lifestyle Show.

Both exhibitions will conclude on Friday.

The exhibitions will host 53 forums and conferences on hotel and commercial space design, urban renewal, shopping mall development, cleaning and air purification, and boat industry development, bringing together industry insiders to discuss current trends.

The 2023 Hotel & Shop Plus showcases the latest hospitality industry construction materials, decorative lighting facilities, retail and cleaning, furniture and mattresses, and smart hotel solutions.

With domestic cruise tourism recovering, the 26th China Shanghai International Boat Show & The Lifestyle Show will host 120 forums, on-site experiences, auctions, promotions, and business events.

Boat and fitting manufacturers, as well as water sports and service providers will exhibit their wares at the event.

In addition to providing a trading platform for businesses, the expo also offers a camping and water sports carnival for locals and visitors.

The expo includes two exclusive display areas for camping and e-sports hotels.

A water sports carnival, a signature event of the lifestyle show, includes electric surfboard water shows, paddle yoga performances, and surfing and skateboarding experiences to enhance participants’ experience.

DCH Boats, based in Shenzhen, is participating at the expo for the second time.

“It’s a fantastic platform, and we’re bringing three new boats to the expo this time,” said Zhu Xiaoyu, a company representative.

A deal was signed between the company and a purchaser at the 2021 expo.

“This time, we’re coming with even higher expectations, and we’re excited to show our latest boats at the expo,” Zhu said.

“The domestic boat tourism market and boat sales are recovering faster than we anticipated, and business is expected to be better by the end of this year compared to before COVID-19,” she added.

The expo, which combines exhibitions, international competitions, forums, and online and offline activities, creates a whole-industry chain cluster of deep integration of culture and tourism with the goal of accelerating the development of tourist destinations as well as the investment and cooperation of relevant industries.

“We received enthusiastic responses from exhibitors and buyers to participate in the expo, indicating strong tourism recovery momentum,” said Zhang Xueqiang, managing director of Shanghai Sinoexpo Informa Markets International Exhibition Co Ltd.

The second phase of the expo will take place from May 29 to June 1 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) in Qingpu District and will include a catering expo as well as an international coffee and food culture festival.
