The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has announced the next CONEXPO Asia exhibition will be held November 16-19, 2009 at the Chinese Import and Export Fair (CIEF) at the Pazhou Complex in Guangzhou, China.

CONEXPO Asia will include working equipment demonstrations, extensive industry-focused education sessions and co-located industry meetings and events.

The last CONEXPO Asia was held at the Guangzhou facility, home to the internationally renowned Canton Fair in 2007. CONEXPO Asia 2009 will be able to take advantage of the exposition centre’s recent expansion, which includes additional indoor and outdoor exhibit space as well as new meeting and function rooms.

CONEXPO Asia 2007 more than doubled in size compared to the inaugural show held in 2006, in terms of exhibit space and number of attendees. The 2007 show had 28,000 visitors from 115 countries, compared to the 2006 event’s 13,000 attendees from 75 countries.

Show manager Petra Kaiser expects the growth curve to continue next year: "We will build upon the success of the previous CONEXPO Asia events to bring the best of the region and the world direct to the China and Asia-Pacific marketplace," she says. "With the improved facility, we can continue to expand the opportunities for industry knowledge-sharing in a convenient and first-class location for the worldwide marketplace."

AEM initiated CONEXPO Asia to provide a China-based exhibition that is run by the industry, for the benefit of the industry. AEM has been active in China for more than 10 years, helping to advance industry achievements in areas including safety, standards, operator training and market data. The show is organized by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME). For more information, go online at

Meanwhile, the count-down has begun for the second Annual TPM Asia Conference in China.

The most pressing issues affecting container trade and logistics in the Europe-Asia, trans-Pacific and intra-Asia markets — from an Asian perspective — will be covered on September 17 and 18 at this event which will take place at the InterContinental Shenzhen Hotel in Shenzhen, China.

The conference comes as container trade throughout Asia continues to grow exponentially, raising many complex challenges for shippers, carriers, 3PLs, terminals and other industry professionals.
