Work on the 9th Guangzhou (China) International Surface Finishing, Electroplating and Coating Exhibition (SF EXPO China 2011) has been proceeding smoothly recently. Compared with previous exhibitions, this one has more features:

1. More Internationalized
SF EXPO China is the only "international surface finishing exhibition" with official authorization in Guangdong province in  2011. It maintains friendly partnership with the international associations including Powder Coating Institute, Korea Plating Industry Cooperative, Singapore Surface Engineering Association, Australasian Institute of Surface Finishing, as well as inviting foreign enterprises. The Number of international exhibitors and visitors will increase greatly in 2011.
2. Larger Scale
It’s estimated that the scale of SF EXPO China 2011 will be twice that of 2009 according to the current booth application, when most exhibitions are stagnating or shrinking. This is great progress to prove the adoption of a biennial event is right.
3. Better Visitor Organization
SF EXPO China focuses on target visitors and buyers and does promotion in all kinds of related nationwide exhibitions and industrial events. Besides, SF EXPO China is popularized via the biggest global search engine – Google and the most powerful surface finishing website in China – Huicong.com.
4. More Concurrent Events for an Industrial Pageant
