Event Details

The Western U.S. Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA) and the 13 Western State Departments of Agriculture announce participation and registration in the following activity, which is brought to you by the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service: 

WUSATA Hybrid/Virtual Pavilion at SIAL China Trade Show 2021 - May 18 - 20, 2021

Even when the world continues to be impacted by COVID-19 SIAL China remains one of the most influential food and beverage trade exhibitions in China. Despite the absence of U.S. representatives due to travel restrictions, the trade show was considered as a successful activity which allowed U.S. companies to remain engaged with the Chinese market. WUSATA in-country partner, SMH International, coordinated booth assistants for company sample and flyer distributions, and facilitated 67 pre-arranged virtual meetings for WUSATA companies to connect directly with potential buyers, build relationships, and establish connection with businesses without being present in China. By offering virtual presentation options at SIAL China, we are able to still offer benefits of participating through virtual meetings and representation of your product. 

To provide 2021 SIAL China exhibitors with the opportunity to be exposed to buyers outside the host city of Shanghai, SMH will arrange a Trade Seminar and Virtual Marketing Briefing before the SIAL Trade Show. SMH will invite 40 Chinese importers, distributors, and retailers, and WUSATA companies will have the opportunity to provide presentations of their products and services to the attendees to raise awareness and interest. Participants who are interested in furthering communication with particular U.S. company can have virtual meetings arranged during and after SIAL. The Market Briefing will involve all ATO offices in Beijing, Shenyang, Guangzhou, and Shanghai, where each office will provide a briefing about the role of its office, markets covered, and an introduction of the regional market for U.S. agricultural products. 

Exhibiting at SIAL China is the best means of making your products known, and for positioning them directly with the various major market players from retail, catering, hotel/restaurant/catering, food services, the import/export trade and manufacturing. The show sets the benchmark for overseas companies stepping into Asia and China as well as providing valuable market insights, trends and innovations of the regional food industry. It has become Asia’s largest food and beverage innovation exhibition.

During these uncertain times, we understand that it may be difficult to travel, due either to country borders being closed or other barriers you may be encountering.
