CIIE 2023 Update

The National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shanghai, China, will host the 2023 edition of CIIE. The event format will be “face-to-face” with the hosting dates being 04.11.2023 to 09.11.2023. To ensure attendee safety, the host venue will implement the most up-to-date coronavirus safety measures. The 3G, or health status verification entry rule, will be one of the installed measures. Attendees should be aware that they will be required to show papers such as immunisation passports before being admitted due to the regulation. Because of the  enacted travel bans, they must also present such paperwork upon arrival in China in the form of a negative test result that has been submitted 48 hours before departure to the country. They will also have to undergo an eight-day quarantine, comprising five days at a centralised location and three at home.


CIIE is a brand new national import & export expo. The name is an abbreviation that stands for the China International Import Expo, which has been taking place once a year. The show will run for six days in total in November in Shanghai, and it will involve the broader trade industry. China International Import Expo Bureau and Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Center serves as organisers, with the latter also being the host of the event. The purpose of the show is to promote international commerce and encourage purchase agreements between suppliers and buyers. The expo also runs two forums that are quickly finding purchase among senior management representatives, political leaders and CEOs – the Hongqiao International Business Media and Think Tank Forum, and the Hongqiao International Economic and Trade Forum.
