Shanghai, China - Miconex, International Fair for Measurement, Instrumentation, and Automation, drew 389 exhibitors from 14 countries and 45,000 visitors during its October 23-26, 2001 run. Some 129,000-sq ft of gross exhibition space was available to showcase the latest in technology and products to the giant Chinese market. After recent biennial exhibitions in Beijing, Miconex returned to Shanghai in 2001.

Number of visitors remained essentially unchanged from Miconex 2000, but the tally of exhibiting companies was down from last year's 500 figure. Still, Miconex claims the position of the 'leading exhibition for its industry in China.' The top four industry sectors represented by the trade show visitors were electronics (23%), petroleum (18.5%), metals (16%), and pharmaceuticals (16%).

While Chinese companies were the dominant exhibitors, 61 international companies (about 16% of the total) from four continents gave the event a global perspective. Hong Kong and Taiwan were included among the home bases of these international companies 'from [13] countries other than China.' U.S. companies continued their significant presence at the show.

Control Engineering magazine was an exhibitor at Miconex 1998 in Beijing and was present to report on the event in 2000.

Many happy returns

A survey conducted at the show found nearly all exhibitors 'pleased with their participation' (99%) and 'satisfied with the quality and quantity of the visitors at their booths' (96%). More than half of the exhibitors has confirmed participation in Miconex 2002.

One highlight of Miconex 2001 was the Summit Forum on 'Development of Measurement and Control and Scientific Instruments.' The three-day session attracted a total of 2,500 participants.
