Numbers in the sign of optimism characterized the largest, most important and longest-running trade fair for occupational safety and health in China, the 102nd China International Occupational Safety & Health Goods Expo (CIOSH 2021), which successfully concluded at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNICE) last April 16th.

Jointly organized by the China Textile Commerce Association (CTCA) and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (MDS), CIOSH 2021 attracted 1,565 exhibitors, breaking the record since its inception in 1966.

Under strict hygiene and safety measures, a total of 35,898 professional visitors attended the 3-day event, marking a 43.6% increase over the 2019 edition. Industry professionals from across the country gathered in Shanghai, interacting with exhibitors face to face to learn about updates on the market  and new products and technologies which covered five main areas: Safety at Work, Security at Work, Health at Work, Emergency Rescue Techniques & Equipment and Anti-pandemic Supplies.

Marius Berlemann, General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai Co., Ltd commented: “We are extremely happy that CIOSH 2021 was able to strengthen its position as Asia’s leading trade fair for occupational safety and health goods and that the cooperation with our partner, the China Textile Commerce Association (CTCA), has developed so successfully. With this year’s event the latest member of the A+A event portfolio proves to be an industry beacon, despite the current impact of COVID-19.”
