Dongguan/Shanghai, 18th October: Beijing Essen Welding & Cutting (BEWC) has historically alternated between Beijing and Shanghai. Beginning in 2018, the show will alternate between Dongguan and Shanghai.
The first Dongguan edition of BEWC will be held at the GD Modern International Exhibition Center running from 8th to 11th May 2018. According to Messe Essen GmbH, selecting Dongguan as the new event location was in part due to Dongguan’s rise as one of China’s largest and most important industrial centres.
The last edition of BEWC was held in Shanghai at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from 27th to 30th June 2017. A total of 977 exhibitors from 29 countries and regions showcased at the event – of which 167 were international companies. The exhibition occupied a gross exhibition area of 84,700 m2. The four-day show attracted 25,200 visitors from 42 countries – although less than 1,000 were from overseas.
