The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) is pleased to invite you to visit the Italian Pavilion at the China International Industry Fair (CIIF) 2023

The thematic framework of CIIF 2023 will be Digital Economy & Industrial Decarbonization. The fair will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai from September 19th to 23rd, in hall 1.1.



Launched for the first time in 1999, the CIIF is a leading fair for high-end, smart, and green manufacturing in China and an important platform for international trade, communication, and cooperation.



After the success of the 2020 edition and a hiatus because of COVID in 2021 and 2022, this year Italy returns to the CIIF 2023 with an Italian Pavilion of 1,300 square meters and more than 50 companies, which will showcase their innovative and advanced technologies and their new products to the Chinese public. The Italian Pavilion is organized by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce and ITA - Italian Trade Agency, with the support of the Embassy of Italy to the P.R.C. and the Consulate General of Italy in Shanghai.

To support the Italian presence and to foster cooperation and working opportunities between European and Chinese SMEs, a series of events will be organized, such as forums, promotional activities, seminars, and ad hoc company presentations.


Second Week of Italian Mechanical Engineering in China (WIMEC)



The second week of Italian Mechanical Engineering in China (WIMEC) will kick off again this year in conjunction with the CIIF 2023. Its main objective is to promote the leading role of "Made in Italy" in the mechanical engineering sector, talking about Italian innovations and know-how thanks to the contribution of the Italian exhibiting companies participating in the fair.

As a world leader in the mechanical engineering sector, Italy is a supplier of technology and machines to the world's major industrial powers. As a matter of fact, 50% of Italy's total exports to China come from mechanical and engineering technology.
