The 8th exhibition welcomed 100,000 visitors from 105 countries and regions. Local Chinese visitors from 31 provinces and cities formed the largest group of visitors.

Visitors from outside China's mainland accounted for over 13%. There was a significantly higher number of overseas delegations, including more than a dozen large buyer groups, compared with previous editions.
