The exhibition area of the first Chain Expo is 10,5 square meters, with five industrial chains and supply chain service exhibition areas, including intelligent automobile chain, green agriculture chain, clean energy chain, digital technology chain and healthy life chain. Among the 515 exhibitors, 26% are overseas exhibitors, covering 55 countries and regions, American and European companies account for 36% of the total number of overseas exhibitors, and the number of exhibitors from countries that jointly build the "Belt and Road" accounts for nearly half of the total number of overseas exhibitors.

Zhang Shaogang said at the press conference held on the same day that the positive spillover effect of the first Chain Expo has continued to appear, and the majority of exhibitors and visitors have gained a lot. Everyone said that coming to the Chain Expo is not "wrestling" to grab customers but "hand in hand" to find partners, and exhibitors are not competitive relations, but more customer relationships, cooperative relations and win-win relationships.

Lin Shunjie, chairman of China Exhibition Group, said that many exhibitors have begun to prepare to participate in the second session of the Chain Expo next year, and many multinational companies that have not participated in the exhibition plan to participate in the second session of the Chain Expo, and the relevant business associations of the United States, Britain, France, Canada, Poland and other countries said that they will organize a larger delegation to China next year to participate in the exhibition. There are also exhibitors who hope to sign two-year, three-year or even five-year exhibition agreements. (ENDS)
