China’s “choice sourcing platform” will return to the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition and Convention Centre (SWEECC) between 19 – 21 March 2018.
The event, organised by Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions (RSE), is expected to be three days of industry networking, business exchange, and learning opportunities.
In 2018, RSE anticipates an attendance of over 20,000 industry professionals to explore almost 500 suppliers from more than 20 countries and regions. In addition, visitors will be able to discover over 130 conference sessions and activities.
Better than ever
“The response we’ve received from the industry has been encouraging to say the least,” shared Peter Liu, Project Manager at RSE.
“In addition to the exhibitors’ diverse portfolio of innovative ingredients and products, our event will also offer visiting industry professionals more opportunities to connect, learn, and conduct business through various accompanying activities,” Liu added.
The PCHi Conference Programme will feature a variety of sessions relating to Technology, Rules & Regulations, Market Trends, and Packaging. Topics for next year’s event have been selected from the results of several industry surveys conducted by RSE.
