It is an exploration and practice of Hangzhou to implement the spirit of the conference, promote the leapfrog development of cultural industry, and strive for the high quality development of Zhejiang and the construction of common prosperity demonstration area city example. In the past 6 days, centering on the theme of “Enriching the New Era · Creating the future with animation”, the exhibition has achieved a complete success by scientific epidemic prevention, effective flow control, slimming content, unreduced quality, safe and orderly, and civilized viewing. It has achieved the effect of “frequent offline highlights and colorful online”.
By October 4, the preliminary statistics showed that despite the epidemic and unprecedented challenges in preparation, the festival still attracted 56 countries and regions, 335 Chinese and foreign enterprises and institutions, 4,031 exhibitors and professionals to participate in various activities online and offline, and conducted 1,646 one-on-one negotiations.

The main achievements are reflected in six key words, namely the safest, Chinese red, number of intelligent, heavy results, promoting culture, bright brand.
In order to ensure the safety and order of the festival, Hangzhou made full use of digital, intelligent and refined epidemic prevention and control measures to ensure the health and safety of participants and the general audience. All participants and visitors are required to check negative nucleic acid test report within 48 hours, “Hangzhou Health code” and “double green code” travel card before entering the venue.
All personnel information is connected to “Hangzhou Health Code” big data center to ensure information traceability. The industry expo uses real-name online booking to control the flow of people by limiting the number of tickets issued. Although the audience is much smaller than in previous years, they are loyal fans, enthusiastic as ever, and the energy is overwhelming.
This year coincides with the centennial birthday of the Communist Party of China, and the festival is held during the National Day holiday, so “China red” has become the theme color.
