In the space of just a few years, the new Pudong district of Shanghai, to the east of the Huangpu River, has undergone major development, and today boasts magnificent high-tech architecture and a particularly large number of sky-scrapers.
The new Pudong Expo Exhibition and Events Centre has been open to the public since 2005 and offers a total of 9,000 sqm of reception area for your fairs, exhibitions, or product launches in ultra-modern surroundings.
Shanghai is China's largest city by population with 17 million inhabitants. Originally a sleeping fishing town, Shanghai became the third largest financial centre in the world, ranking after New York City and London.
The two districts, Puxi and Pudong (which means respectively the western part and the eastern part of the Pu) are separated by the Huangpu River. Nowadays, Puxi is considered as the old city. Pudong becomes an entirely new financial district where skyscrapers abound.
The city is a center of cultural activities with an increasingly international and Western dimension : the Shanghai Biennale, the contemporary art galleries as Shanghart are some examples.
