As the world grapples with disruption from the pandemic, trade shows have become even more important as a means to get business going again, but Music China is striving to prove that cancelling its expo may not only hinder economical growth for its local partners, but the best way would be to keep going, whatever that may be.

This year, an exhibition area of 115,000 square meters is expected, with 11 exhibition halls in which different categories of musical instruments and products will be exhibited. In addition to the on-site exhibition, the digital exhibition is also being addressed to provide convenience for those unable to come in person due to the pandemic.

Global brands confirming their participation in Music China 2021 include Casio, Dunhuang, Fender, Fengling, GEWA, Gibson, Hsinghai, Jinyin, JOYO, Kawai, LAVA, NUX, Parsons, Pearl River, Pioneer DJ, Samick, Steinway, Tama, and Yamaha.

With the world still facing the disruption caused by the pandemic, Music China will keep pace with all exhibitors and take responsibility for generating business opportunities for brands and retailers on this functional platform, thus contributing to the prosperity of the global music industry. Undoubtedly a must for exhibitors looking for business opportunities and for the public looking to get an inside look at the industry.

In the post-pandemic era, brands are looking for efficient ways to tackle the dilemma and sustain business growth. A risk, however high, is to break the deadlock the pandemic has caused thus far.
