In the three days, the 11th CBME attracted 88,062 trade visitors from 78 countries and regions, making it the world's leading industry expo by unprecedented scale and numbers of visitors. Most exhibitors and visitors expressed a very high opinion of CBME. Visitors were extremely satisfied with the convenient onsite services, such as the VIP lounge and overseas visitors' lounge, shuttle buses between halls, etc.

"It's been four years since Chicco exhibited at the 8th CBME in 2008. We are deeply impressed with the buyers' quality, the huge flow rate, and the realisation of the rapid, positive and energetic development of the baby industry in China." said a representative of Chicco.

"It's the first time we have exhibited at CBME. We identified many clients, and we haven't made a final decision about who our partners will be. CBME is a great platform for Joovy to develop in China." said a representative of Joovy.

"We have successfully moved forward with a supplier who's going to manufacture for us." said a French buyer.

CBME is committed to creating more value for all of the exhibitors and trade visitors. It's a convenient and cost-effective way for trade visitors to find quality, attractive products and to meet targeted suppliers. The onsite activities created an added value, and were again welcomed for exhibitors and visitors. Innovative products awards set a record attracting 53 products with domestic and international patents participating in the competition. Besides, CBME Seminars gave 11 forward-looking industry speeches to nearly 3,000 visitors. Private Buyers Meetings created face-to-face opportunities for exhibitors and visitors to interact efficiently and widely recognised as an excellent business platform.

The 12th CBME will be held 18 - 20 July 2012 in Shanghai with a 103,500 sqm exhibition area and 1,200 expected exhibitors with 1,900 brands.
