Senior staff at a new exhibition and convention centre in northeast China travelled south to a sister venue in Hong Kong for final pre-opening training.
The team from Shenyang New World Expo is set to handle three major events in one month when the facility in Liaoning province soft opens on March 1. This will be followed by three more events in April.
The team underwent training at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. The management companies of HKCEC and Shenyang Expo are each subsidiaries of NWS Holdings and sister companies.
“This specific training, as well as the ongoing training Expo received through HKCEC during the last many months, helps to ensure a greater level of professionalism when responding to our clients,” says Diane Chen, Shenyang New World Expo’s general manager.

The following month sees the 17th China (Shenyang) Auto Fair Expo on April 1-4, followed by the 5th China (Shenyang) Wedding Industry Exhibition 2017, April 8-9 and the 19th Northeast China Public Security Exposition, April 20-22.
Cliff Wallace, chairman of the new facility’s management company, Shenyang New WorldE xpo (Management), says: “The response by the exhibition organisers and interest in booking the venue is most encouraging.

“Expo’s soft opening will continue through September, after which bookings are shaping up to be better than expected once Expo’s adjacent hotel and retail-leisure elements open this autumn. We are very encouraged that this venue will be a model for China’s second-tier markets.”
