              Tips for Attending Trade Shows in China

              To have a smooth experience at exhibitions in China, here are some tips:

              Visa Application

              Many nationalities need visas for entering China.

                  • Apply 1-2 months in advance for Chinese visa. More and more citizens are applying for visas to visit China after the COVID pandemic ends. It means more days required to get the visa than usual. Make earlier plan for the visit so that you won’t miss the exhibition.

                  • Provide trade show invitation letter and other documents. You can ask your Chinese supplier to prepare the invitation for you. In some countries, company registration and ID copy maybe needed also.

                  • Get visa with double or multiple entries for flexibility. If you plan to visit more than 2 exhibitions this year, then the visa for multiple entries will be helpful.

                Currency Exchange

                    • For better rates, we recommend exchanging a small amount of currency at home

                    • Use debit/credit cards to withdraw Chinese Yuan at ATMs in China using debit/credit cards issued by major banks. Most ATMs support bank cards with Visa in major cities like Shenzhen

                    • Inform bank before travel to avoid issues

                    • Find some exchange stores in Shanghai or Guangzhou if taking some USD with you.

                    • Get the exchange done at the bank. It may requires 1-2 hours or more. Meanwhile, you will need help from the Chinese friend to withdraw Chinese Yuan who has an account from the banks.

                  Getting Around

                      • Use metro systems in cities like Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou

                      • Fast and affordable

                      • Get metro cards at stations or take taxies with addresses in Chinese

                    Metro are very convenient to get from the airport or train station to your hotel and the exhibitions without traffic jams.


                        • Download translation apps like Google Translate, it can be very helpful for navigating, ordering food etc.

                        • Get VPN service to access Google, Facebook etc since they are blocked in China. If you need help on this, you can also contact us.

                        • Consider getting local SIM card. You need to go to the brick and mortar store from the Chinese network operators to buy the SIM card. It is better to come with your Chinese friend because many of them don’t have in-store English services.

                        • WeChat is commonly used in China. It is helpful if you want to stay in touch with the suppliers in China when your VPN doesn’t work accidently.


                          • Book hotel rooms early near exhibition ground.

                          • Search hotel discounts online

                          • Airbnb apartments can be cheaper for long stays

                        Given the large scale of these shows, flights and hotels get booked up quickly. Make sure to book your tickets and accommodation well in advance to get good rates and availability.
