Milestone for Chinese Exhibition Industry

GIE is particularly proud for the first asset deal of a Chinese organizer outside of China. Mrs. Yang Cheng, GIE President, said “We would like to promote the industry further development in potential increasing area with our resources and network.”

GIE is following the One-road-belt strategy and is eager to expand its international pet show network beyond ASEAN and Chinese borders. The acquisition of “Thailand Int’l Pet Variety” and “Thailand Int’l Dog Show” is a first milestone for GIE to become more active in the pet exhibition market. Together with China Int’l Pet Show (CIPS, Sep.27-30 2018) and the shows in Thailand, GIE is now the leader of pet exhibitions in Asia Pacific Region.

Importance for China and Thailand

The acquisition of “Thailand Int’l Pet Variety” and “Thailand Int’l Dog Show” is not only important for GIE and IMPACT but most important for the exhibition industries in China and Thailand. For China it’s the first investment of an organizer outside the borders of China along the one-road-belt and for Thailand the first welcome of a Chinese organizer to the Indo-Chinese subcontinent. The newly formed Joint Venture between GIE and IMPACT will bring both countries closer together and improve the industries in both countries. Particularly ornamental fish breeders from Thailand are eager to explore China and Chinese pet manufacturers have now an access to the ASEAN market with more then 500 million consumers.

IMPACT welcomes Chinese organizer

One of Thailand’s largest exhibition organizer and venue owner IMPACT is also particularly happy with this acquisition. The General Manger, Mr. Loy Joon How said “We are excited with our collaborations with GIE to further develop and grow the Thailand  Int’l Pet Variety and the Thailand Int’l Dog shows to be key regional shows that support the growth of the regional pet and dog care markets and industry.”

After a long period of international organizer mainly from Europe, USA and India, IMPACT is very proud to host the first Chinese organizer. It’s also the first time that IMPACT sold some of their existing assets and shows to a Chinese organizer.

Newly formed partnership will address all needs for the B2B and B2C pet market in ASEAN
