Mr. Wang Mingliang, Founder and Director of UBM Sinoexpo, said: "As a professional exhibition organising company, we have successful experience of working with industry associations to take their events to the next level. Take Furniture China as an example. We have been working closely with China National Furniture Association for over 20 years on Furniture China which has grown from a 3,000 square metre show into a mega international exhibition of 350,000 square metres. This model will also work successfully for Guzhen's lighting fair."
UBM Sinoexpo and the Guzhen government have started on the promotion of the 12 th International Lighting Fair & LED Application Exhibition to be held from 18 - 21 October 2013 in the new Lighting Capital (Guzhen) Conference & Exhibition Center and in three lighting marts, providing a total exhibition area of 250,000 square metres. Organised by the Government of Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, China Association of Lighting Industry and China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the 2013 Fair is expected to welcome 1,000 exhibitors.
