Conference and exhibition industry has always been considered as the barometer of the vitality of a city. The consecutive holding of various kinds of high-end conferences and exhibitions is also considered one of the manifestations of the vitality burst of a city.

On August 31 this year, 2018 the 3rd China Shenyang International Robot Conference with the theme "intelligent manufacturing innovates the future" was held in Shenyang. Robotics experts from the US, UK, France, Japan and other countries and regions, and enterprise senior managers from robot manufacturing enterprises attended the conference and made excellent reports. Mei Xiaodan, president of BIT Group Global Ltd., event promoter of this activity, said during the interview that robot conference let talents of robotic industry get together in Shenyang from all over the world. It will not only assist the industrial development of Shenyang, but also help Shenyang to integrate into the "friend circle" of the world.

China International Equipment Manufacturing Exposition is also a featured name tag of the city. It bears the function of displaying products of foreign and domestic equipment manufacturing enterprises, and works as the platform for the discussion about science and technology, research and development capability, transformation and upgrading. The exposition showed the best image of Shenyang and created numerous "best of China". Qu Daokui, president of SIASUN, said:" The consecutive holding of China Equipment Manufacturing Expo shows the giant changes took place in the urban development of Shenyang and the constant increasing of reputation and influence of Shenyang."

Hosting a good conference and making a city shine. "Equipment Manufacturing Expo", "Robotic Conference", "APEC Technology Expo" and "WWCAM Mayors Conference"... Shenyang is showing its brand new look to the world. More than 30 expositions and fairs such as 2018 Shenyang International Advertisement Festival, 2018 China Shenyang International Expo, 2018 the 17th China Shenyang International Automotive Industrial Fair, 2018 the 7th China Shenyang International Home Expo held this year make the key word "Shenyang" the hot word on the internet. The consecutive hosting of exhibitions, expositions and conferences stimulated the shift in driving forces and let the city burst its vitality.

On 2018 Shenyang the 5th China Smart City Innovation Conference, experts said no country or city can develop in a closed and self-contained environment while the world is becoming more open each day. Different regions form up an industrial ecological system in which they depend and influence each other with their own advantages and in different links of the global economic chain. How to build up the "friend circle" in this ecological system and realize information sharing and mutual benefit is the question every urban manager who seeks for scientific development must think about.

Hosting international conferences, inviting guests from all over the world such as Nobel Prize winners, authoritative experts, senior staff officers of the government and business elites to attend the conference. Their coming will undoubtedly let more people know about Shenyang. The influence and attention will not only promote international communication and cooperation among cities, but will also attract enterprises and talents from all over the world and bring more opportunities to invite investment. These are the "bonus" brought by international conferences to Shenyang.

Taiwan businessman Gong Xuanren is a typical case. With the international exposition held in Shenyang, Gong Xuanren walked into the urban environment and industrial environment, which provided him the opportunity to have a new understanding about Shenyang. Thus, he decided to make more investment and bring more technology to Shenyang.

Amplify the effect and positively forge ahead. Shenyang is deploying tasks in the future, grasping the opportunities brought by the successful hosting of various kinds of exhibitions, constantly amplifying the effect of exposition industry and constantly enhance the development innovation ability of economic society. Curtain rises and the show is on. In the next step, Shenyang will focus on the implementation of "5-high" measures and the construction of "4-center", take high quality development as the basic requirement, make practical move, promote the transformation and innovation development of the city, speed up, improve quality and efficiency and stimulate the new kinetic energy for urban development.
