2. Scale and influence of the exhibition continue to be expanded, and the function as platforms is more prominent.

The roles and functions of CIEME as display platform, exchange platform and trade platform have attracted more and more domestic and foreign enterprises to participate in exhibition. Especially in the situation that the world economy has become increasingly complicated, enterprises hope to obtain information, seek business opportunities, expand channels and regain confidence in the market by participating in CIEME in the key phase of "climbing over the ridge". Therefore, the total number of stands for this CIEME is increased to 3,900, which is 274 more than that of the last CIEME. There are 7 exhibition halls used during this CIEME, which is one hall more than that of the last CIEME, and the exhibiting area will exceed 11 hectares.

4. 3D printing technique and equipment exhibition area is set up at CIEME for the first time.

Compared with traditional manufacturing technique, 3D printing technique is indeed a major technological revolution which can even be described as "to overturn" the traditional manufacturing technique. 3D printing technique can solve the technological problems that cannot be solved by traditional manufacturing technique and bring fresh impetus for the innovation and development of traditional manufacturing industry, and it is also a scientific and technical field which attracts professionals' attention and interest.

A 3D printing technique and equipment exhibition area is set up at this exhibition for the first time, which attracts more 60 domestic and foreign well-known enterprises, such as Hong Kong Di Wei Technology Co., Ltd., Shanghai TaiLian New Energy Technology Co., Ltd., Wuhan Tuodi Technology Co., Ltd., Hunan Farsoon High-Technology Co., Ltd., and Shenyang Gain Technology Co., Ltd., to participate in exhibition and reserve more than 100 stands.

5. International Equipment Manufacturing Industrial Design Exhibition is held.

In order to promote China equipment manufacturing industry to transform into manufacturing service industry and play the function of CIEME as demonstration and exchange platforms, we have invited China Industrial Design Association (CIDA), China Machinery Industry Federation (CMIF) and Shenyang Economic and Information Technology Commission to hold serial activities of China International Equipment Manufacturing Industrial Design Exhibition during the CIEME, and the main activities include Forum on China International Equipment Manufacturing Industrial Design, Award Deciding of International Equipment Manufacturing Industrial Design, etc.

8. Thrift is practiced during this exhibition.

In order to implement the eight rules of the Party Central Committee about changing work style, preparations are made and activities are arranged for this CIEME based on the spirit of thrift. The opening ceremony is simplified, and the exhibitor awarding ceremony is changed to publish online, therefore the number of guests invited from related departments is reduced, the reception form is simplified, and the cost of various preparations is reduced.

9. Traffic condition and service quality of the exhibition are improved.

In order to provide a quick and convenient transportation for the general public to visit the exhibition, we will open a streetcar line between Ao Ti Zhong Xin station of Metro Line 2 and Shenyang International Exhibition Center, reduce the departure interval of streetcars, and provide free shuttle buses at Shi Ji Da Sha station of Metro Line 2. We have comprehensively improved various services and reception work, including accommodation, catering, logistics, warehousing, customs clearance and inspection. In order to ensure the safety of the exhibition, we will only open the south, north and east entrances of the exhibition halls, and all visitors should go through security check.

III. Preparations for the exhibition have been basically completed.

Preparations for the exhibition have been basically completed. Exhibition arrangement and field work will be started on August 25th.

In order to ensure the smooth progress of the exhibition, a command system consisting of the subsystems such as exhibition business, comprehensive coordination, trade and economic negotiation, invitation and reception, event planning and news propaganda is established for this CIEME. Operating agencies such as equipment support, forwarder, customs supervision, inspection and quarantine, intellectual property protection, business center, security and traffic control will be established at the site of the exhibition. Related departments such as public security, health, urban construction, power supply, transportation and administrative law enforcement have taken active measures and carried out careful deployment. We have also made arrangement for the tourism, catering, accommodation and communications all over the city to ensure that everything of the exhibition is all right.

In order to show the image of CIEME with a high standard, we have carried out integrated planning and unified design for the site of the exhibition, and put forward clear requirements for the design style of the exhibition as well as the erection of special stands, thus to fully embody the modern industrial characteristics of being dignified and majestic. The overall result of this exhibition and the grade of decoration are expected to have an improvement.

Dear comrades and friends from the media, we have basically completed all the preparations for the 13th CIEME & High-Tech Exhibition. On behalf of the Organizing Committee of CIEME and People’s Government of Shenyang, I'd like to invite the friends from the media to publicize and report the 13th CIEME from all directions and multiple angles with a deep level, invite domestic and foreign equipment manufacturing enterprises to participate in the 13th CIEME, and warmly welcome people from all countries, regions and circles to come to Shenyang for the 13th CIEME.
