A ceremony marking 100 days until the first China International Consumer Products Expo was held in Haikou, capital of South China's Hainan province, on Jan 26. 

The expo is set to be jointly held by the Ministry of Commerce and the People's Government of Hainan Province at Haikou International Convention and Exhibition Center from May 7 to 10. It will be the first national exhibition to focus on consumer products and will play a key role in building Hainan into an international tourism and shopping destination, promoting Hainan's opening-up, as well as boosting Hainan Free Trade Port's global image and influence.

All parties are now committed to building the expo into a vital, national-level open platform for advancing the country's "dual circulation" development pattern, which aims to rely primarily on domestic consumption - known as "internal circulation" - and also to promote trade with the outside world, known as "external circulation".

At present, all the preparation work for the Expo is in full swing.

The exhibitor recruitment work has been effectively completed. Currently, subscribed exhibition space exceeds 70,000 square meters, and 90 percent of the total planned exhibition area has been registered.

Buyers from all over the world have been enthusiastic in joining the event. Chinese and foreign professional buyers and high-end consumers are in talks with the organizers to seek cooperation with global top brands and to place orders.

Chambers of commerce such as the China Chamber of Commerce and the China Chain Store & Franchise Association will organize member companies to attend the event. 

During the exhibition, Hainan will organize a variety of tourism and consumption activities to attract high-end consumers. It is expected that some 3,000 to 5,000 professional buyers and 50,000 high-end consumers will visit the expo on a daily basis.

Preparations for supporting activities are underway. The executive team is carefully planning a series of activities that focus on themed topics. In addition to the opening ceremony, the global duty-free and travel retail forum, and the high-end retail innovation and development conference, there will also be new product launch events by top brands. 

Trade promotion agencies from different countries will hold product briefings. The Gems & Jewelry Trade Association of China and other trade associations will hold events on Hainan FTP's opportunities for related industries. Key purchasers such as CDFG and China Resources Mixc will organize procurement matchmaking meetings.
