The visitor program this year will include the Aluminium Downstream Processing Forum, the Downstream Processing Product Display Area and factory tours.

Aluminium China 2014 is more than just a trade show. Its powerful and expansive networking effect gives international visitors abundant opportunities to build business contacts and offers unparalleled value-added services that maximise the return they gain my making the trip.

Match making: The ideal way for international businesses to connect with Chinese partners
With its finger on the pulse of the global market and comprehensive array of exhibits that illustrate the latest global trends, Aluminium China 2014 is the ideal place for sourcing aluminium raw materials, semi-finished and finished products, production and processing machinery and accessories.

The show’s customised match services assure international visitors of abundant opportunities to build valuable business contacts. The organisers plan to satisfy visitors’ high expectations by shifting from the traditional model applied for exhibition visitors – one based on random onsite encounters - to one of pre-arranged meetings. The online matching system will recommend potential buyer-supplier matches based on the individual needs stated by each side. Furthermore, a show team representative will personalise the matching system by helping international visitors to discover even more potential suppliers, some of which may not have shown up via the automated matching process.

Factory tours: Giving visitors direct access to leading chinese plants
Through guided tours of multiple factories in and around Shanghai, visitors will witness, first hand, how aluminium manufacturing, processing and extrusion are completed. They will also be able to evaluate, in person, the high quality production processes, safety procedures and technologies currently in use by China’s leading aluminium suppliers and equipment makers.

The tours are a unique opportunity to experience the most advanced downstream processing and machinery in China. Every factory along the tour route will open up its key technology department to outsiders for the very first time. In acknowledgement of the fact that visitors to the show want the highest return on their participation investment, and to make the best use of their time, the tour is provided by Reed Exhibitions, courtesy of a complimentary travel package.
