As China's largest professional labor protective equipment exhibition, the 100th China International Occupational Safety & Health Goods Expo (CIOSH) was successfully held at Shanghai International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from July 3 to 5, 2020. After more than 50 years of development, CIOSH has become an industry spearhead, leading the scientific and technological development of the labor protective equipment industry in China and has ushered its 100th anniversary this year. CIOSH 2020 is co-organized by China Textile Commerce Association (CTCA) and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd (MDS). This event attracted a total of 1,035 exhibitors and 21,207 professional visitors (2019: 25,000 visitors). Industry professionals gathered in Shanghai to get the latest market information and product technology.

As an exhibitor, Gianni Li, National Sales Manager of UVEX Safety Co., Ltd. said: “Even if affected by the epidemic, the number and quality of the visitors this year wasn’t inferior to the previous years, which greatly exceeded our expectations. And I’m so delighted to meet some end users on site, which means the whole society begin to realize the importance of PPE.”

The first Epidemic Prevention & Response Event (EPRE): An education and training platform related to domestic epidemic prevention and emergency response
Epidemic diseases have brought great harm to the Chinese and global society and economy. However, there is no platform for the exchange of related topics in China. In order to enhance the awareness of all sectors of society on epidemics and to provide effective and efficient solutions to the management and operation of companies in the event of outbreaks and other emergencies, the first Epidemic Prevention & Response Event (EPRE) was held collocated with CIOSH. Four experts, in the fields of medicine and public health as well as business representatives like Dupont, Accenture, have shared epidemic prevention and control measures, tips for selecting epidemic prevention products, and solutions to tracking the history of epidemics from different perspectives this year. The audience were left inspired.
CIOSH 2021 will be held in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from April 14-16. CTCA and MDS will work together to integrate high-quality resources at home and abroad, present more exciting content for exhibitors and visitors and lead the development of the industry.
