Reed Exhibitions signs partnership agreement with CFTC Group

News this week: Earlier this week, Reed Exhibitions and the China Foreign Trade Centre (Group) – CFTC Group – held a signing ceremony in Shanghai to announce their new strategic alliance agreement and partnership. Mr Wang Zhiping, chairman of CFTC Group and Mike Rusbridge, chairman of Reed Exhibitions, were representative signatories at the ceremony.

The CFTC Group is China’s leading state-owned enterprise with operations in event organising and is also an exhibition venue provider – including the recently opened National Exhibition and Convention Centre (Shanghai) in Hongqiao and the China Import and Export Fair Complex (Pazhou Complex). The partnership will result in regular executive meetings, resource sharing, professional talent cultivation, exhibition projects, organisation and venue cooperation.

Mike Rusbridge was quoted saying, “Reed’s commitment to China has never been stronger with our eight outstanding member companies who currently organise over 50 events covering 12 specialised industries nationwide. This new partnership will prove mutually beneficial in the joint projects that we intend to undertake together in China. This alliance will remain instrumental to the modernisation and sustained success of the industry.”
