The Administrative Committee of the Beijing Daxing International Airport Economic Zone unveiled convention and exhibition projects on Tuesday as well as a recruitment of professionals and experts in such projects.
The announcement was made at the Beijing Daxing International Airport Economic Zone Convention and Exhibition Economy International Forum.
A manager of Beijing New Aerotropolis, a company responsible for developing the Daxing airport area, said the construction of the international convention and exhibition center in the zone will promote the development of the airport economic zone, support the building of Beijing as the international exchange center, and serve as a new driving force for national development.
In the future, the airport area will build an international convention and exhibition ecosystem featuring innovation industries. As a hub of international cargo transport, capital flow, and information flow, it will push forward development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
An official of the administrative committee said the committee has launched a search into the international exchange functional zone and set up an expert committee to facilitate the implementation of the convention and exhibition project. In the second half of this year, the committee will open a worldwide bidding for the design of the convention and exhibition center, and look to deliver the project in 2021.
The forum was held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the virtual forum, industrial representatives from Germany and China discussed topics such as the convention and exhibition development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, as well as the challenges to the construction and operation of global convention and exhibition venues.
