Discussing CIIE

Speaking


In this season all the clothes I want is that can keep my one.

CIIE, the exhibition it is not far from Hongqiao. It is our first time to attend so from 5th to 10th it is private and we have to register and to get a pass and after nov 10th the public can go into there. So it is open to the public.
First day is limit to people to the exhibitor. We only have 20 pass for our whole company. On the 5th we can only go 20 people after that from the 6th more than 100. Because we have a big booth we have to operate and the 5th it is limit because our president Xi was there so the security is very high.At first they invited us to attend the expo and they offered us ” they are the government. They offered us 3 advertising spots and this would cost us 280 million CNY and also we can have a new product press event on the expo and also we could have 2 seats in the conference and it costs 50,000 and they wanted us to be a member of the expo. They create club of all the exhibitors and we committed to sponsor 50,000 a year for 3 years. All the things which I just said they are gone, they just don’t say anything about this they just on one day. 2 weeks before the expo they just cut connect with this company and they don’t talk about all these things so at the end we only have a boot hand nothing more. It is weird. SO far I heard about some news it is maybe caused by our very high level manager. They said someone just posted some inappropriate comment to China but the government don’t explain. they just don’t say anything so it is just our guess, so we don’t know what happened.

We can only speaking of the booth so it was very popular during the expo so many many people went there and there are volunteer to get in a line for waiting to visit.
We need some people to be flexible to see what we should do like in the morning people are too many and people get in line from all around. I made sure people don’t jump the queue and I need to observe if people in the booth are getting less and I can tell the security to release more people and we also  had some government officers to visit and my boss will give them a tour and sometimes there are too many officers and I have to do tour guide for some people and also we have KOLs and they take photos and videos in our area and I support them.


I was at the CIIE, the exhibition is not far from the Hongqiao airport. It was our first time to attend so from the 5th to 10th it was private and we had to register and to get a pass and after nov 10th the public could go there / it was opened to the public.

The first day was limited to the exhibitors / staff members. We only had 20 passes for our whole company. On the 5th we could only let 20 people  enter / only 20 people could go after that from the 6th we were more than 100. Because we had a big booth we had to operate it/man it and on the 5th it was limited/restricted because our president Xi was there so the security level was very high.

At first they invited us to attend the expo and they offered us by (saying) they I mean the government. They offered us 3 advertising spots and this would cost us 280 million CNY and also we could have a new product press event on the expo and we could also have 2 seats in the conference and it would cost 50,000 and they wanted us to be a member of the expo. They created a club of all the exhibitors and we committed to sponsor 50,000 a year for 3 years.

All the things which I just said/mentioned/listed are now gone/ are now off the table, they just didn’t say anything and cut communications  . 2 weeks before the expo they just cut communications with us and they didn’t explain anything so at the end we only had a booth and nothing more.
It is weird. So far I heard some rumors and that it  may have been caused by one of our very high level manager. They said someone just posted an inappropriate comment about China but the government didn’t explain. they just didn’t say anything so it is just our guess, so we don’t know what happened.

We can only speak about the booth so it was very popular during the expo so  many people went there and there were willing  to get in a line for visit.
We needed the staff to be flexible and adapt depending on how many visitors we had

I made sure people don’t jump the queue and I needed to observe the flow of people and I told the security to let people enter and we also  had some government officers who visited the booth and my boss gave them a tour and sometimes there were too many officers and I had to give the tour  We also had KOLs and they took photos and videos in our area and I supported them.
