The China International Pet Show was held for four days offline (12-15 November) and nine days online (12-20 November) last year. With a limited number of international participants, the offline CIPS hosted around 600 exhibitors and attracted around 30 000 buyers. For their security, the organisers took special measures to ensure the safety of visitors. For example, they registered QR codes from local authorities, checked body temperature at the entrance and imposed the wearing of masks in all public areas. In addition, the flow of people was controlled, the aisles were enlarged and the events were placed in different halls.
A total of 28 events were offered at CIPS for various fields, including the premiere of the China International Pet Food Ingredients Conference, the China International Pet Food Forum, the New Product Showcase and the CIPS Innovation Award. Four live streams were also set up to showcase the latest products from exhibitors.
However, the CIPS is also considered one of the largest aquatics shows in the world. The Global Ornamental Fish Championship brought together hobbyists, breeders, clubs, associations and suppliers from more than 20 countries. "The championship acts as an engine to revitalise the aquarium industry," the organisers reported enthusiastically.
