Health ingredients China (Hi China), organized by Shanghai UBM Sinoexpo International Exhibition Co., Ltd., will take place from June 20-22 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Shanghai.
China is the world’s largest food and beverage market with a population of more than 1.3 billion. Rising incomes, an ageing population, and food safety-conscious consumers have led to a large increase in the Chinese health market in recent years. Chinese expenditures on health products has grown at an annual rate of 15-30% in the last 20 years, versus 13% in developed countries over the same period. It is also estimated that the Chinese health care industry will be worth more than 8 trillion RMB by 2020.
Hi China is China’s leading health ingredients event. Formally led by the brand Food ingredients Asia China, the event has been serving the Chinese market for the last 18 years. Since the health ingredients brand was added in 2003, the show has continuously developed and played a key role within the growing food, beverage and health sectors in China and beyond. Hi China is held alongside a variety of other events including Food ingredients Asia-China, HNC, NEX and CPhI China. Combined, these events are China’s largest gathering of the food ingredients, health ingredients, finished health food products, natural extracts and pharmaceutical ingredients industries, all under one roof.
As the largest event in China for health ingredients, Hi China will not only provide visitors and exhibitors with a meeting place to establish business relationships with regular and new partners, but also offer them a range of on-site activities, such as the Nutraceutical Industry Development Conference, which will include an analysis of the latest health food registration and application policies in China; Discovery Tours, which will provide visitors with special topic-driven routes around the show floor; and the Buyer’s Sourcing Meeting for visitors searching for products online and then meeting with the suppliers onsite.
Last year’s post-show survey showed that 91% of visitors were satisfied with their experience at Hi China, and that 94% of them planned to participate again in 2017. Currently, visitors can pre-register for the event and activate badges in advance to avoid the on-site queue. Registered visitors can get access to on-site activities and all the co-located shows, as well as gain free access to the VIP lounge and a gift and a lunch coupon.
