The Fujian Strait International Conference & Exhibition Center began its trial run on May 9, 2010. This “big butterfly”, refering to Fujian Strait International Conference & Exhibition Center, whose shape is like a butterfly, situated near the Minjiang River, is expected to upgrade the exhibition industry in Fuzhou city.
Both Fuzhou South Railway Station and the Fujian Strait International Conference & Exhibition Center have now undertaken their trial runs, marking a significant step to boost the economic development of east Fuzhou.
Located by the eastern riverside of Nantai Island, the Center covers an area of 32.5 square kilometers. A total of RMB 3.778 billion was invested in constructing the Center into a modern new city zone, which can provide comprehensive services including business, culture, sports and entertainment.
The 12th Cross-straits Fair for Economy and Trade will be held in the Center. Considering the large participation scale, Areas A, B, C, D, E and F in the right-wing hall and Area J in the left-wing hall will be open for use, providing 2380 booths.
It has been learned that Fuzhou attempts to hold a national- or regional-level exhibition every month this year, in a bid to host the National Pharmaceutical Equipment Exhibition, National Exhibition of Sugar and Liquors, Tourism and Culture Exhibition, etc.
Fuzhou will make an unremitting effort to promote its exhibition economy so as to rank among the second camp of domestic exhibition industries.
