Guest Post: US Commercial Service Invites Life Sciences Companies to China

This article was submitted by CTC content partners at the US Commercial Service, part of the International Trade Administration at the US Department of Commerce.

The US Commercial Service is seeking interested participants for participation at the upcoming CMEF trade show in Shanghai, China.

The Corporate Executive Office (CEO) Program is a trade show program designed to offer small and medium sized companies a method of exhibiting at a trade show. The CEO is a specific area on the trade show floor (located within the USA Pavilion) that is subdivided into meeting space (with tables and chairs, one set per each U.S. company), business center (internet access, small desk, etc.) and small lounge/seating area.  Through the CEO center companies are able to have a dedicated space, onsite support and preshow promotion without the full cost of being a traditional exhibitor.

Why CMEF and Why China? CMEF is the largest life science show in China (and all of East Asia).  With over 100,000 visitors from 150 countries CMEF is the regional gathering place for all life science companies including natural products such as vitamins and supplements.  Additionally, as a market, China is now the second largest in the world and continues grow at a double digit rate.
