Close interaction with Industry Elites
SF EXPO began exhibition preparations in early July 2016 after visiting many surface finishing companies, as well as downstream enterprises like automobile and parts manufacturers around the Pearl River Delta area. After meeting industry leaders, researchers, and professionals at Interfinish 2016, the organizing team has established a cooperation with NASF, SSEA, and other associations to support SF EXPO 2017.
The 2016 annual meeting of China Surface Engineering Association Painting of Branch in October gave a great opportunity to promote SF EXPO with over 100 association members. The association confirmed that the chairman’s expansion meeting would be held concurrently with SF EXPO 2017
The SF EXPO team was able to meet with more than 80 companies that specialize in aluminum surface finishing at the 7th Guangdong Aluminum Processing Technology International Seminar, held in Foshan on 13 November. This event had 600 participants. The Guangdong Provincial Nonferrous Metals Society Aluminum Processing Committee, which organized the event, is also co-organizer for SF EXPO 2017 to host Aluminum Surface Technology Seminar. The aluminum visiting group is also invited to SF EXPO 2017, which will be held in May.
Surface finishing demands in South China Market
Guangzhou is the most prosperous city in South China, as well as the host of SF EXPO. It has a superior location near Hongkong and Macao, along with the cities of Shenzhen and Zhuhai.
The surface finishing products and technologies are in high demand from manufacturing giants like Huawei, Midea BYD Gree Foxconn GAC Group Galanz TCL TCL, Foxconn GAC Group GAC Group Galanz and many other medium and small businesses. Guangzhou is a city with a very strong industrial base, which makes it ideally suited to host expos on surface finishing.
The Guangzhou Government passed a plan on 17 October to build Guangzhou into the international industrial base for auto parts. On the basis of its current status, the government will invest 2.5 billion dollars to build five industrial parks in Panyu Zengcheng Huadu Nansha Conghua. The goal is to create a national auto parts cluster, a manufacturing and exporting auto parts base, and a new energy and intelligent car auto parts cluster. According to the plan, production will increase by 200 billion dollars in 2020, and key parts will be localized to 80%. The government will invest a maximum of 50 million dollars in new auto part companies. In addition to the five industrial parks mentioned above, Zhaoqing and Meizhou have also been selected for developing traditional auto parts industries. Surface finishing services will be attractive to auto part companies in the Pearl River Delta.
