A ceremony marking the one-year countdown to the CICEE 2023 trade show took place Changsha, China, in May.  The trade show will take place in May, 2023, also in Changsha.

At the ceremony "globalisation and specialisation” were identified as being key concepts of the trade show by Li Xiaobin, Deputy Secretary-General of Changsha Municipal People's Government.

According to the show’s organisers CICEE 2023 will comprise 300,000 square metres, with 12 indoor halls and seven outdoor exhibition areas covering 20 specific professional exhibition areas including cranes and specialised vehicles.

The show is being actively promoted internationally and the organisers expect this to be reflected in the diverse international attendance they anticipate for the show.

In addition, CICEE organisers say they have worked hard to attract high level academics to its line-up with the aim of facilitating direct connections between industry and research, in the process creating a technology platform for the sharing of ideas.

CICEE 2023 takes place in Changsha, China, 12-15 May 2023.
