Messe München, the organizer of Ispo Beijing, formerly known as Ispo China, has decided to run the next edition of the show over four days rather three as it was the custom over the past years. The organizers said they were making this move in response to requests from exhibitors and visitors, who said they had not time to hold all the meetings they had planned at the last show. The new schedule will also give them more time to attend conferences and seminars, which are an important part of the overall program. In 2012, Ispo Beijing will be held again – after a successful premier this year – at the China National Convention Center (CNCC) close to the “Bird’s Nest,” the Olympic stadium of the Chinese capital. The show will run from Feb. 22 through 25, 2012.
