3rd China International Import Expo 2020 (CIIE 2020)

5 – 10 November

CIIE is the largest import exhibition in China. This year NZTE will continue to work in partnership with China Chamber of Commerce (CCCNZ), the recruit agent for CIIE to create New Zealand branded pavilions in the Food and Agricultural Products and Health and medical equipment areas at CIIE.

The official deadline for registrations this year is 30 April, however the CIIE organisers have offered some flexibility for companies to register by the end of May, subject to availability of space (after the 30 April deadline, space will only be given on a first in first served basis.)  CIIE organiser will make a full refund if the Expo is cancelled due to the further impact of COVID-19.

For registration inside NZ branded pavilions, please contact ciie@cccnz.org.nz
