Paperworld China has confirmed the dates and venue for its 2019 edition as 15 – 17 November in Hall 1 of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai).
In total, the fair is expected to welcome 500 exhibitors across 23,000 sqm of exhibition space. Thanks to high demands from the country’s growing student population, China’s stationery industry is entering into a new growth period. China has the world’s largest student population. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the total number of students in China exceeded 240 million in 2017. With the number of students forecasted to rise to its peak between 2020 and 2030, Paperworld China says that the coming decade can be considered the golden decade for international stationery brands to penetrate the Chinese market.
Ms Judy Cheung, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, is looking forward to the coming edition: “Paperworld China is the right platform for suppliers to connect with quality buyers and increase their brand exposure. As we step into the golden decade for the Chinese stationery industry, Paperworld China will continue to serve as a business and information exchange hub for the most up-to-date products and trends.”
