With a surface area of 5,400m², Equipmag Retail Expo China will showcase 160 local and international exhibitors and welcome 8,000 buyers from China and other countries.
The event will enable participants to gain an insight into global retail-industry trends while fulfilling the specific needs of retail players based in mainland China. The trade fair is due to take place at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, in Shanghai, from 15 to 17 October of this year.
Statistics show that China has surpassed Japan in becoming the world’s second largest retail market. The country’s economy is developing rapidly and China is likely to become the Number One global retail market in the world by 2015 or 2016.
According to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, the number of retail professionals rose from 45 million in 2008 to 60 million in 2012. The number of operating business units has reached 23 million. In China, the share of GDP represented by the wholesale/retail trade has increased significantly, rising from 8.30% in 2008 to 9.70% in 2012.
This series of marketing figures clearly illustrates the potential and the dynamics of the retail sector in China. Additionally, the decision made by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce to launch the China Free Trade Zone in Shanghai will undoubtedly quicken the pace of development in China’s retail industry.
Equipmag Retail Expo China responds to the sector’s growth in China and will help to educate retail-industry players and raise standards in this dynamic market. The trade fair is co-organised by Comexposium and Diversified Events Hong Kong, the Hong Kong-based unit of Diversified Events.
Thanks to Diversified Events’ experience in hosting Retail Asia Expo (in Hong Kong), and thanks to Comexposium’s track record in organising Equipmag Paris (in France), Equipmag Retail Expo China is bound to attract top retailers and meet the expectations of retail suppliers from across China and the region.About Diversified Events

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
