In 2020, the abbreviation of China International Trade in Services Fair will be changed from "Beijing Fair" to "China Beijing International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS)". It has become the largest comprehensive exhibition in the global service trade field and the leading exhibition in my country's service trade field. Together with the Canton Fair and the China International Import Expo, it has become China's three major exhibitions open to the outside world.
Yan Ligang, deputy director of the Office of the Leading Group for Preparation and Service Guarantee of Beijing 2020 CIFTIS, and director of the Municipal Bureau of Commerce, introduced the overall arrangement, preparatory work and highlights of 2020 CIFTIS.
2020 CIFTIS is planned to be held in Beijing National Convention Center and surrounding venues in early September. In order to scientifically and effectively respond to the global epidemic situation, and adapt to the development trend of the exhibition industry of "from physical to virtual, from offline to online". 2020 CIFTIS will be held in the form of online and offline integration, and preparations are currently being made according to three plans: The first is that if the global epidemic is effectively controlled, it will be held in an "offline-based, online supplementary" manner. Second, if the situation of overseas epidemic prevention and control is still not optimistic, the method of "organizing online and offline exhibitions and conferences at the same time" is adopted. According to the level of epidemic situation, the offline focus is on exhibitors from low-risk regions at home and abroad, and for overseas guests and merchants who cannot be present, participate in online exhibitions. Third, if the epidemic prevention and control situation at home and abroad is still severe, it will only be held online in accordance with the overall national epidemic prevention and control requirements.
The theme of 2020 CIFTIS is "Global Service, Reciprocal Sharing", with 7 types of activities: The first is important events, including the Global Service Trade Summit. The summit will invite important guests from home and abroad to give speeches on the rules, order and hot topics of international service trade, so as to build consensus on the development of global service trade. The second is the summit forum, including three summit forums including "New Trends in the Development of Service Trade Opening Up", "Digital Trade Development Trends, Frontiers", and "Service Trade Facilitation from the Perspective of Multinational Companies", inviting representatives of relevant international organizations and national government agencies , Well-known guests from the industry, academia and research circles at home and abroad carry out discussions and exchanges. The third is industry conferences and professional forums. It is composed of relevant international organizations and institutions, overseas countries and regions, national ministries and commissions, domestic provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, domestic and foreign business associations, and well-known enterprises, focusing on cutting-edge trends, innovative development, and international Industry conferences and professional forums are held on themes such as cooperation. In addition, there are side events, exhibitions, results announcements and supporting activities.
2020 CIFTIS aims at the goal of "first-class exhibition" and will realize three major innovations. One is to establish a new "1+N" exhibition system. "1" refers to the comprehensive exhibition area, which highlights the development achievements of my country's service industry and service trade, the smart application of 5G, artificial intelligence, blockchain and other cutting-edge technologies in the global service trade field, as well as the latest domestic and foreign epidemic prevention products, latest technologies and Chinese solutions etc. "N" refers to the creation of N industry topics, cultural trade, tourism services, financial services, winter sports, service robots, 5G communication information services, etc. will be unveiled in a concentrated manner. The second is to form a new model of online and offline integration of exhibitions. According to the epidemic situation and the needs of participating in the conference, a digital platform of the Service Trade Fair will be built to create a “Cloud Service Trade Fair”. Through the establishment of exclusive pages, virtual booths, live broadcast of offline events, and the creation of virtual meeting rooms, we will provide more opportunities for exhibitors. Through online appointments for offline events and the establishment of virtual negotiation rooms, it provides convenience for the precise matching and docking of exhibition customers. Set up an online release hall to carry out online release activities. The third is to launch a variety of supporting activities. Innovatively organize evening events and off-site events to further enhance the effectiveness of the exhibition. For evening activities, theme nights, business salons, banquets, cultural exhibitions, technology light shows, gourmet business parties and other activities are held in the National Convention Center and surrounding indoor and outdoor venues, providing convenience for exhibitors to carry out relaxing evening business exchanges. In terms of off-site activities, we recommend Beijing's characteristic technological and cultural tourism consumption resources and routes, and provide diversified choices for exhibitors to experience the capital's new image, new technology, and new services.
