2012 CIFEX|RemaxAsia Expo Changes Fall Show Dates7 Jun, 2012
CIFEX|RemaxAsia 2012 has had to change its dates to comply with government requirements for a security lockdown at the Zhuhai Airshow Centre during October.
Tony Lee, organizer of the CIFEX!RemaxAsia 2012 event says, “We have just received notice from the organisers of Airshow China—the only international aerospace trade show in China which is endorsed by the Chinese Central Government. They now require the use of the venue 6 weeks before their November Airshow due to security concerns.”
Consequently, CIFEX|RemaxAsia Expo 2012 has been moved from October to September 24 - 26. But the venue will still remain the same—the Zhuhai Air Show Center, Guangdong, China. Lee says he apologises for any inconvenience caused by the change of dates.
CIFEX|RemaxAsia continues to grow every year, and 10,500 trade visitors from more than 80 countries and regions are expected to visit more than 440 exhibits over the three days September 24-26. The local government now recognizes Zhuhai as being the print consumables capital of the world. More printer cartridges are manufactured and remanufactured there than anywhere else in the world. The iPrint (China)Expo, touted as China’s first digital press and commercial printing show, will also move to the September 24-26 dates, with the iPrint Conference now being held Sunday September 23, when Dr. Edul N. Dalal, Research Fellow at Xerox Corporation, will deliver the keynote speech.
Organisers expect 5,000 visitors to visit 120 exhibits from 10 countries and regions. They say that China has more than 500,000 digital press print shops and kiosks, providing some 700,000 jobs, and generating 50bn RMB (US$7.9 bn) revenue every year. Some 500 manufacturers produce hardware and supplies for digital press printing.
Charles Brewer, president of the market research firm Actionable Intelligence said, “I would never miss the Zhuhai show. I attend many remanufacturing industry events around the world, but I can see the latest products and meet with the leading companies right here. The show is positioned, geographically, alongside 300 cartridge remanufacturing factories. So people wanting to do serious business, travel here from all over the world.”
