The 17th China Hi-Tech Fair, or CHTF, will be held in Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center from Nov 16 to 21.

The annual event is currently the largest and most influential scientific and technological fair in China and is known as "the number one technology show in China", fair organizers said.

Fan Junchao, director of the marketing department at Royole Corp, said the company participated in the fair because many well-known high-tech companies take part and the event has introduced many scientific research products to Shenzhen and the country.

CHTF's exhibition area is more than 150,000 square meters this year and in past years nearly 3,000 exhibitors from more than 50 countries and more than 500,000 visitors have attended annually.

At this year's fair, Royole will present their latest product "Royole-X", which is a foldable mobile screen device featuring groundbreaking technology that enables the world's highest pixel density display with 3300 ppi-10 times higher than current leading smartphone displays.

"The fair is a feast of technology trends and concepts," Fan said and added it would show audiences the rise of high-technology development.

In 2012, Liu Zihong, a Stanford University graduate, founded Royole after quitting his job at IBM in the United States and brought his innovative ideas to Shenzhen. Today, it is one of the leading high-tech startups.

This year's CHTF is expected to attract more high-tech startups like Royole, especially as it plans to set up independent sections for inventors, young high-tech enterprises and university student entrepreneurship, to provide a platform for innovation, ideas and products of small and medium-sized innovative enterprises, individual makers and students.

The fair hosts a road show for about 50 small and mini-sized high-tech companies to promote their projects to more than 100 investors.

At previous road show events, high-tech companies have attracted investments of tens of millions of yuan and the successful fundraising has given them advantages for rapid development.

Bellsent Technology Co, a Shenzhen-based solution provider for smart cities, received a 10 million yuan ($1.6 million) investment at the 12th CHTF and now has projects in Tianjin and Hunan and Zhejiang provinces.

The fair has always supported the development of makers. Last year, Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences displayed about 30 projects by makers and was very popular.
