There are some tips for exhibiting in Shanghai and do business in China for the first time.

  • Obtaining a Chinese Visa
  • Non-Chinese participants will need to apply for an entry visa into China.
  • Once you finalize your arrival and departure dates, submit your application for a Chinese visa.
  • Booking a Hotel Room
  • Organizers will provide a list of approved hotels (for varying budgets) located near to the exhibition venue. We encourage exhibitors to select one of these official accommodation options for the duration of the exhibition as they are near the show venue, so there is no chance of being caught up in the morning or evening rush hour.

Business Etiquette in China

  • Getting to know someone face-to-face is a key the Chinese use to determine if they want to work with you. Below are a few tips to help you make a strong and positive impression on potential Chinese partners and customers.
  • A handshake is the standard way of greeting. Note that the Chinese respect their elders, so an extra show of courtesy in the presence of an older person reflects well.
  • It never hurts to know even a little Mandarin in advance. Simple phrases such as Ni Hao (hello) and xiexie (pronounced ‘shee-eh shee-eh’ - thank you) can go a long way towards making a positive impression.
  • The Chinese generally like to give small, inexpensive gifts. It’s, therefore, a good idea to bring similar presents with a theme from your country

Business Meetings

  • Arrive early for the standard formal introductions. It is usual to be introduced to the most senior person at the meeting first, followed by the others, in descending order of seniority.
  • Have business cards translated into Chinese on the reverse side?
  • Never begin eating or drinking until your host does. It is considered good manners to try all the dishes offered to you, although you can discreetly leave anything you don’t like at the edge of your plate. Always set chopsticks down horizontally, never vertically, in a bowl.
