The exhibitions calendar in our website has been updated, following the announcement, made by the organizer ADSALE, that the next year edition of CHINAPLAS that will take place in Shanghai from April 24 to 27, 2018.

We underline that, in 2018, CHINAPLAS will take place for the first time at the National Exhibition & Convention Center (NECC,, the new Fairgrounds in Hongqiao, Shanghai.

Until 2016, in even years, CHINAPLAS took place in Shanghai at SNIEC, and was marked by a continue lack of space considering exhibitors’ requests: in 2016, 14 temporary structures were built to meet, at least in part and with some logistics disadvantages, the space requests made by several hundred exhibitors.

NECC opened in 2015 and provides a covered area of 400,000 sqm gross, second in the world only to Hannover Fairgrounds. Located close to Hongqiao airport, connected to the most important Chinese cities by several high speed trains, NECC should offer a functional solution to above mentioned problems.

Further information regarding Italian exhibitors’ applications will follow in due time.
