The China Beijing International Fair for Trade in Services is an important event for people from the service industry to acquire resources and find partners, said Pan Jianjun, president of Meorient International Exhibition.

At a news conference in Beijing for the fair's convention and exhibition section, he said: “I will visit other sections at the fair, such as the language service section, to find resources our clients may need to better develop.”

Pan's company signed a $10.08 million cooperation agreement with an Indian trade fair company and a $9.3 million contract with a Brazilian company at the third China Beijing International Fair for Trade in Services in 2014.

Chu Xiangyin, executive vice-chairman at China Convention/Exhibition/Event Society, said it's difficult to showcase many services. Through the trade fair, to be held from May 28 to June 1, conventions and exhibitions can be platforms to promote the development of the service industry and boost trade in services, he added.

He said the event, which involves 14 categories of service trade, is a comprehensive and high-level platform where people from the convention and exhibition industry can promote their convention and exhibition concepts.

At the convention and exhibition section of the fourth trade fair, an international conference will discuss trends in the convention and exhibition industry, from new technologies, services and business models to international trade situations.

Speeches at the conference will discuss new cooperation opportunities in the Chinese and South Korean convention and exhibition sectors under the Belt and Road Initiative and how the mobile internet can make conventions and exhibitions more efficient.

Representatives from mobile internet companies will attend a separate activity to discuss how the convention and exhibition industry can better use mobile internet.

The section will also organize a conference to discuss and promote environmentally friendly development of the convention and exhibition sector, organizers said.

The organizers said the convention and exhibition section at the third trade fair had 24 trade negotiation areas and a 508-square-meter exhibition area. The section served as a communication platform and helped solve problems in the industry, they said.
