[image_0]Ada Leung, Assistant General Manager of Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd, stated that soon after the start of exhibitor recruitment, many corporations applied for their booth space, and the growth of show scale was surprisingly high. In addition to all 17 exhibition halls in the east, west and north wings of the fairground, the organizer will also set up exhibition halls at the central square to expand the exhibition areas for displaying more machines and raw materials. This expansion not only satisfies the needs of the loyal exhibitors to enlarge their booth areas, but also accommodates more new comers. With such expansion, Adsale expects the total exhibition area to hit a new record high of 200,000 m², which means an increase of 33.3% over the last edition held at Shanghai in 2010. The 4-day exhibition is expected to attract over 100,000 trade visitors from 140 countries or regions and over 100 groups of delegations.[image_1_right]
