Event sees 15% increase in attendees
PCHI opened in Shanghai with record visitor numbers. A total of 3,365 visitors attended the show on the first day, up 15% on last year’s show in Shenzhen. Exhibitor numbers were also bolstered with 83 companies taking part for the first time, including Ashland, Delfin Technologies, Stepan and Cosmetic Valley.
“Despite the challenging economic conditions that the world is facing now, the strong turn-up on the first day of PCHI 2012 indicates that the Chinese C&T market remains an important focus for many businesses,” commented Daniel Chan, project director, PCHI. “As we look forward to more positive years ahead, we hope the show will continue to guide industry players along the path towards greater success.”
