CIOSH 2023 Closes on High Note in Shanghai

The 104th China International Occupational Safety & Health Goods Expo (CIOSH 2023) closed with great success at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNICE) on April 15. Jointly organized by the China Textile Commerce Association (CTCA) and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (MDS), CIOSH 2023 was the first occupational safety and health trade fair to be held in China following the extensive relaxation of epidemic-related restrictions. A total of 1,522 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions showcased their state-of-the-art protective equipment and technology on more than 80,000 square meters of exhibition space. The three-day exhibition attracted a total of 47,616 trade visitors, representing an increase of 32.6% compared to CIOSH 2021 and 90.4% compared to CIOSH 2019, which was not only on par with pre-epidemic levels but even higher.

Overwhelming positive feedback from exhibitors and professional visitors alike

Exhibitors were pleased with the exhibition and reported that it even exceeded their expectations.

Mr. Matthias Stetter, Director RBU ACJ (Asia, China, Japan) of UVEX was satisfied with the results: “After 3 years of pandemic we are now back, meeting face to face, having the opportunities to exchange information. The results were better than I expected. The number, professionalism and quality of the visitors coming from different sectors, who have visited our booth and show the interest in our products, is overwhelming.”

“We are very happy to be here, especially after the last few years of difficulties, and the segment is booming again,” said Mr. Alexander Kirzinger, President of Teijin Aramid Asia. “CIOSH has been the prime event for protective apparel in China and Asia for more than 50 years. We are delighted with the customers and partners that we are able to meet here.”

Mr. Lin Yanfeng, General Manager of Jiande Daily Chemicals Co., Ltd. (Chaomei), stated: “To Chaomei, CIOSH is undoubtedly the most important trade fair in our industry. It has played an instrumental role in Chaomei’s growth. We began participating in CIOSH in the late 90s when we were a small factory with only 20 employees. Over the decades, CIOSH has enabled us to accumulate a valuable customer base, allowing us to gradually expand to our current size. I wholeheartedly thank CIOSH for its unwavering support of Chaomei and eagerly anticipate its ongoing success.”

Visitors were also satisfied with their participation and 93% stated that they had a productive and successful experience.
