(Shanghai, China, June 27, 2023) The 15th edition WieTec China, the leading expo platform for environmental industry concluded successfully on June 7th at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Hongqiao) in Shanghai. In the first year of China’s full economic recovery, the exhibition achieved a new record in overall scale, bringing together exhibitors from over 3,500 brands and more than 90,000 high-quality products in the environmental industry. Moreover, it attracted over 100,000 professional buyers during the three-day event, making it a world class trade fair and demonstrating the vitality of the WieTec China brand.
Since its inception in 2007, the organizer of WieTec China exhibition has worked tirelessly for 16 years to cultivate a small trade exhibition into a flagship platform for the Environmental industry worldwide. As China’s economic restructuring deepens with greater focus on the dual carbon national goals, the Environmental Protection industry is facing unprecedented transformation. The market is shifting from simple pollution control to systematic environmental and ecological governance and integrated resources recycling. At the same time, the rapid rise of new and renewable energy industries and commercial decarbon demand has brought opportunities for industry enterprises.
As the innovations accelerate in the industry, even slight adjustments can drive a significant market change. In the new era and new format, it is a challenge and responsibility for the organizer to explore the growth markets for the environmental industry, improve the quality of technical exchanges, and expand commercial trade opportunities. To achieve these strategic goals in the future, WieTec China not only needs to refine the development path but also pursue internationalization. With the continuous expansion of the services, it is mission critical to evaluate the resources and capabilities of the international partner. Finding a new development path for WieTec China has become a critical question for the organizer.
With the strong commitment for the industry advancement and customer success, the organizer of WieTec China has now established the strategic partnership with the leading exhibition group Informa Markets, which has international reach and strong track record. With this strategic partnership, WieTec China will broaden the development scope to continuously create value for the industry and customers.

The organizer will fully connect with the strong overseas resources and the international network of Informa Markets to strengthen the scale of overseas exhibitors and visitors, expand domestic and international technical exchange channels, improve the overall quality of the exhibition, and enhance the role as an international trade platform. We trust the strategic partnership will further strengthen the leading position of WieTec China so that the trade fair will make greater contributions to the long-term development of the industry.
